I don't do well without an objective. Today I should be going for a walk (it's good for my brain) but I can't decide where to go. The park isn't far enough and I have no desire to get wet feet from the grass. I don't do aimless walking well. I need a destination and … Continue reading Aimless walking:
I think the title is self-explanatory but I guess it isn't for everyone. :)If you could ask me a question about writing or my work, what would it be? What do you really want to know? Is there anything? If there is, jump into the comments section and ask. I will answer to the best … Continue reading If you could ask me a question …

It's been a week. Usually by Saturday I can tell what sort of week it has been. This one was interesting. We did have our most fascinating bus trip ever yesterday. Neither Freda or I expected to hear the conversation we heard and had to wait until we got off the bus, a full twenty … Continue reading Don’t Stand So Close To Me.
I haven't heard 'Let it Bleed' in ages so today I'm changing that. (I'll link you to it down the bottom.)It's a dull grey rainy day and the urge to do nothing is high. Yesterday I was a domestic goddess and cleaned the oven, cleaned all the downstairs windows ... all manner of cleaning went … Continue reading Let it Bleed
Last night I fell asleep reading [Whiskey Tango Foxtrot] and had some crazy dreams. It's not the first time I've fallen asleep reading [WTF] but it's the first time I've read it like it is now. Pretty well done. It's exciting reading it as a real (almost) finished book. It came in just over 85k. … Continue reading Well, I’ve been haunted in my sleep.
Guys, we have an official launch party date. August 4th at the Central Library in Upper Hutt. It'll be a 6PM kick-off, probably. Exciting right?I haven't done a physical launch for this series at all, so, I'm excited.

What if William Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe had a chat about my work? Guess what you can do with ChatGPT? Oh yeah I did. This is the conversation that ChatGPT spat out. (And I gotta say, this AI thing is fun to play with!) William Shakespeare: Good day, Mr Poe. I couldn't help but … Continue reading What if?
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook then you might have seen me say I would share another bio that ChatGPT wrote for me. And I will. Early this evening I had some fun with ChatGPT and got it to write bios for me and for my buddy Pete. We're both pretty sure that … Continue reading Another look at AI …
Or not. I don't care either way. But, AI is getting pretty good and it's fun to play with. After working (yes, writing) for a few hours this morning I decided I'd go see how ChatGPT was doing. It gets better all the time. Wanna see the results? Yeah, you're going to regardless of whatever … Continue reading AI can be fun. Trust me.
