    Ahhhh, that sweet smell of… rejection.

    It’s not something I’ve had any personal experience with – yet – but I don’t for a moment suppose I’ll be any different than even those wonderful writers and novelists I grew up reading, and that I’ll somehow be spared the wrath of a...

    Almost Finished

      I’m almost finished, after 7 month’s of labouring evenings and on the bus (I write on my palm pilot) my urban, sci-fi adventure novel is almost ready for its first painstaking draft! The anticipation is so great that the few hundred words I wrote last night...

    Certain Things.....

    Did you ever notice that certain things only happen in the movies, but never happen in real life? For example: 1. It is always possible to find a parking spot directly outside or opposite the building you are visiting. 2. When paying for a taxi, don’t look at your wallet as you...

    Really, A Writer?

    Writers are carnal bastards that talk with their fingers. We live to tell everything. We live to expose our soft under bellies because we are all shameless exhibitionists. We are profoundly sensitive and we care too much, but, oddly, we won’t answer the phone when our best...

    I'm a writer who needs his laptop!

    I was without mine for a couple weeks while it was getting repaired. No matter how much I tried to adapt and write anyway, production had ground to a halt! I'm working on being productive again. Wish me luck!
