Thoughts on Creativity Over the Festive Period

1st Jan 2010 in Writing

Towards the end of December, the pages of my day-planner are whiter than the 4am snow. Every other week of the year is full of black scribbles, crossings-out, and attempts to do three different things in three different places during one Wednesday lunchtime. But those December days! Blank and free; perfect for writing. I can finish my novel, write some new poems, start that screenplay I keep boring people with. I’ll get to it, right after I eat my turkey…

A Winner Is Me!

29th Nov 2009 in Uncategorised

Now it’s time for an early night, hot chocolate, and a trashy crime thriller. Damn, I’m so rock ‘n’ roll.

NaNoWriMo

12th Nov 2009 in Uncategorised

I’ve been very quiet lately, I know; blame NaNoWriMo. I was doing pretty well with my typing (at this speed I wouldn’t dare to call it ‘writing’), but then I got an upper respiratory tract infection and spent three days in bed. There’s still time!

Fortnightly Check-In

19th Oct 2009 in Uncategorised

I seem to have a mental block on making this weekly, so I think I should just give in and call it the fortnightly check-in. Acceptances: 3 ­– and as I’m so tardy with my updates, they’ve all been published. Coffee Break at The Pygmy Giant is a quirky future-tense romance; The Last 3,600 Seconds at Circlet is apocalyptic erotica (apocarotica?); And The Devil Makes Three is a “poetic vampire story” which won an honourable mention in Oysters and Chocolate’s…

Fortnightly Check-In

5th Oct 2009 in Uncategorised

How do I keep missing the weekly check-in? Shameful. Acceptances: 2 – Writers’ Bloc, who replied within an hour! Very friendly and the last issue contains many writers I like (and some we just accepted into Fractured West). Also Verbicide for that classic piece of literature, ‘Queer Zombie Disco’. Rejections: 8 – 3 from magazines I really like, 3 I’d forgotten I’d even submitted to, and a very nice one from Fiction Circus. And, of course, McSweeney’s. I have begun making…

New Work in .Cent A/W 09

4th Oct 2009 in Writing

In every issue of .Cent, a worldwide network of creatives from fashion, art, music, design, illustration, literature and others, contribute their own interpretation of the title. These contributions are then shared with the readers without the heavy hand of an intrusive editorial opinion. This inimitable concept allows contributors to speak directly to the readers, creating an intimate yet open debate. .Cent does not dictate, it opens up debate. Be inspired, get involved. My story ‘Dresstrees’, will be part of the…
