It's quite difficult critiquing pieces which the writer has said are personal to them. I'm not sure if my opinions on the successes and...

I write as a hobby, and I must say I really enjoy it. I've been around Deviant Art for a while now, and have loved it since day one! I'm looking for (constructive!) criticism on a few pieces of my work. So no pictures (sorry...!), but an opportunity to exercise your imagination.
Hopefully we'll see some improvements over time.

NaNoWriMo. In all likelihood, you probably know what it is. That epic internet challenge of writing without ceasing for a whole month #doyoulikehowisurreptitiouslyincludedeveryoneintheopeningparagrapheveniftheydidntknowaboutnano.

It has STARTED TODAY. I write... or I fail. The gauntlet has been thrown down. The challenge has been accepted. The monkey has tamed the badger.

This evening I have enjoyed the online company of a brave band of fellow Brightonian writers hoping to reach that magical 50,000 word count. We welcomed in the new month with several 'Word War' challenges and plenty of chatroom banter.

A good start, I think.

If you're attempting NaNoWriMo too this year, do find me on the link below. I'd be happy to compare notes/talk/stay up late/share manly stories/in the morning I'm making waffles.

Yonder doth be the link-eth to my profile... eth!

The story I am writing, regrettably, has changed from my original plans. This is because my sources of inspiration have changed as my life circumstances have... changed...! (See postscript)

Basically what I'm saying is that I'm writing a story about a school because I'm a trainee teacher. I'm hopeful that this project may well be something really special.

Yes.. I'm aware that I've said that about a lot of things I've started...

You can expect the full thing on my Deviant Art Page (or, maybe more realistically, as much as I get done!) after I give it the once over after November. By Christmas. Or New Year. We'll see.

Thanks once again for your love, your feedback, and your support. See you on the other side.


P.S: As much to myself as to anyone else: Don't worry. I'm not giving up on Rethsvale just yet. There's more to come from that place...!

I saw J-ames had deactivated his account and was worried at first.  Glad that's someone else!

Whoa... there was someone called 'J-ames'? Obviously I've set a trend! :D
