"Oh, my God, Jake. What have we done?"       That's one hell of a hunting dog you've got there, Jake. Where did you pick him up, the lion enclosure? I'm not even going into the logic gap inherent in bringing down Superman...

A little teaser from my current novel-in-progress, 'The Hall of Small Questions', to mark the passing of the first narrative milestone.
I love working a nine day fortnight. After a few days away from the work, I managed to sit down today and bash out 2300 words on The Hall of Small Questions, bringing the story to just over 7000 words in total. It's the first...

Thumbnail Thursday gets his ass dumped.
"What the hell do you mean, you think we should see other people?"       I rather like this one. Relationships are at the core of narrative, as is conflict, so it makes sense that broken-- or, at least, breaking-- relatio...

Lego.
It's been over a year since I've MOC'd anything. For those who failed their first year Lego Jargon unit, MOC stands for 'My Own Creation', and it's what adults call that thing I used to call 'playing with Lego' when I was a k...

Thumbnail Thursday revisits the fine art of plastic modelling, and its role in juju air disasters.
Real content in the next few days, I promise. I'm only just emerging from the busiest time of my year. But in the interests of keeping you amused: "Then I make bullet holes by heating up this pin and poking it through the ...

Happy birthday to my darling wife.
My darling wife, Luscious Lyn, turns 45 today. It's difficult for me to believe that we've been together, now, for over 11 years. Every day feels like a first. There's a freshness, a spirit, to our relationship: it constantly...

Thumbnail Thursday gets bored halfway through its own thumbnail...
Nothing to say about this one: a whimsy, a bon mot of momentary amusement. What's most am using to me is that the machine is obviously meant to be a labyrinthine maze of tubes and vaguely scientific falderal, and I just as ob...

Fish, fowl, Battersby.
I've not been writing recently. It feels like a chore, like something I have to get through in order to be finished, rather than something I do for the fun of it. Part of it is my day job: I've just been through the busiest t...

Book launches, Lego, Master 9 returns to school, interviews... it's all going on!

Go to the light, my friends. Go to the light.
