Another uni update

It’s now the beginning of Trimester 3, 2017.  I’ve successfully completed 14 units of a 24 unit course, I feel like I’m on the home stretch. If all goes well over summer I’ll have two full years under my belt and only need to complete eight units to have my full Bachelor of Arts degree. […]

The Carpet People by Terry Pratchett

The Carpet People by Terry Pratchett Goodreads In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet…That’s the old story everyone knows and loves (even if they don’t really believe it). But now the Carpet’s home to many different tribes and peoples, and there’s a new story in the making. The story […]

I’m stepping back a little

As you may know I’ve been over-committed for a while now. Last week I gave in and took a few days off the blog, it should have been more days. Instead of a week I should have taken two or even three weeks off to give myself time for my uni work. Things have not […]

Randomly Shelves or Something

My brilliantly aptly distractingly named new series continues. Where I randomly select two books from my shelves and attempt to find a link. I do not promise it will be a good link, only that it will be a link. It might be anything at all. One thing I do promise is that the link will not be […]

Writing and editing and critting

Why am I writing yet more thoughts on this? Because I’ve got another short story in for publication. This one I had no time so I ignored my rules and submitted without having it edited. This is something I deeply regret, truly. Although they’re still publishing it and sent it back to me with some structural edits. […]

Writing, and writing, and writing…

It’s another of those articles because I haven’t the brain space to find something about books and what other people are writing. It’s all about me and my degree today. I’m now one third of the way through my Bachelor of Arts in Professional and Creative Writing. As they say, practice makes perfect, although in […]

I bin writting

I feel almost like a real writer this week. I’ve been doing lots of writing for uni and for the magazine, Wordly, put out by Deakin Writers. Don’t get me wrong, I need to do lots of writing this trimester, there’s good reason there. Let me ramble for yet another Friday and talk about what I’m studying […]

It ain’t here

Last night was the launch of the magazine that has my short story. I know you’ve been waiting and waiting but there isn’t an online version of it and I’ve been asked not to share it until after the next magazine comes out. In three months time after the launch of the next issue I’l be able […]

Musings

I’ve been doing a lot of musings on my blog on Fridays lately and not a lot of useful stuff, for that, I apologise. It is really only because I get to Friday and my brain has shut down. I’ve been between study trimesters and logically I should have plenty of time to do things […]
