There was a blog post forming when I woke up ... but then it slipped away. Probably a good thing.Anyway, next weekend my class is all about POV, characters, and dialogue. Hence the title of this blog. It's a Train song that describes a woman, called Virginia. We learn a lot about her from the … Continue reading Meet Virginia
Quite a bit, as it happens. I actually do know things. (I drink and I know things ... I drink and I write things is probably more accurate.) I know ... ... how valuable time our time is. ... each day comes around only once, so hug your people, and be kind! ... being grateful … Continue reading What do I know?
Yes, I know, an uninspired blog title. I haven't slept since Thursday night - you get what you get. :)A lot happened this week. Here we go:1. Yes, I am writing another Kiwi book. This one is called [Leave a Message] and it's another fun time with Ronnie, Crockett, and the Cronies of Doom.2. I … Continue reading Hello, to you!
And I'm back ~ You may not have noticed my absence but I was gone all week and now I'm back. I had a magnificent fourish days in Christchurch with my sister from other parents. 🙂 There's really no photos of the trip because the only reason for it was to spend time together. No … Continue reading The One I Love
Howdy. I've been binge watching Blindspot on Neon. I knew I'd love it. It's 100% up my alley. What I didn't realise was how much would be familiar to me, tech and also story wise. Clearly the writers had some serious fun with this series. Anyway, I was watching the other day and someone said … Continue reading Blindspot cross-over
I've been around long enough to know that some people are Bad to the Bone. There is nothing redeeming about them at all. I've written a few characters like that over the years. I'm sure AD Owen liked puppies the way Cruella de Vil liked puppies. (Byte reference for those who don't know who Owen … Continue reading Bad to the Bone
Seems like the best title for the day. Not very inventive but let's not put too much pressure on 2021. It's the last day for the Smashwords Sale (I know it ends on Jan 1 but I think it actually ends on the 2nd for us in the Southern Hemisphere). Links for you: Byte Series … Continue reading Jan 1st, 2021

I had this whole blog post in my head this morning but then I left my MacBook at home due to the horrendous weather, so I couldn't write it when I got to the bookshop. Also, my wrist isn't terribly happy at the moment. It's been aching like a bastard for three days and nights, … Continue reading Where’d my ideas go?
I was talking about how writers minds work the other day, and how trusting yourself is important. How much a writer needs to trust their own brain to do what needs to be done. Some days are infinitely better than others in the trust department! Thing is, anything creative requires a certain amount of trust. … Continue reading The shitasticness of creativity.
