Editing and Uni

We had a prompt for Writing Craft at Uni. We had to write 1,500 words on Memory as Seed. That means we had to take a memory and write a short story with that as the basis. It was going to be workshopped so we had to then take enough copies for the class so they […]

Some thoughts on Uni

My brain is a little full at the moment and I keep forgetting what I was doing, sometimes in the middle of doing it so I’m scribbling a few more words on Uni because I’ve forgotten what I was really going to write. Uni life is amazing! They tell you to hook all your devices […]

Writers not paid?

There’s something that’s been totally fascinating me at events such as SupaNova, Armageddon (now called AMC Expo) and other events such as these which include “stars” from movies and TV series. If you’re not familiar with them let me explain a little. AMC Expo is an amazing event whereby you have a number of stars mostly from overseas […]

That time of year

It’s that time of year when people expect an article about the past year and the year to come, I’m going to write some stream of consciousness before editing so here goes… This time last year I’d just come out and told you all how I was going to stop self-censoring my writing and just […]

Book Expo 2015 – final bits

There are a couple of people who don’t fit into any category so they get an article to themselves with a few final words. I was originally attracted by the typewriter, it’s a thing of sheer beauty and such amazing engineering but then I stood and listened to Black tell the story of his book and what’s […]

Book Expo 2015: Support Personnel

As promised here are some words about the support personnel I met at the Book Expo. I suspect I could get entire articles using some of what I’ve written here and each article would only scratch the surface. The lovely people at BookaBuy. Remember when I wrote about Book Clubs? This is what BookaBuy does, I […]

Side benefits to studying

One of the things I’m finding is that it’s not only what you know but who you know that can get you a job. I was reminded of this a few weeks ago while talking to a friend so I asked her to write me an article, pleasantly surprised to find Jenny had remembered and sent me […]

Study update

Early this year I made the decision to go back to study. The goal was to attend university for the very first time and complete a Bachelor of Arts. Knowing it was rather late in the enrolment process I checked Monash Uni’s website fairly thoroughly and emailed through a question. The answer duly came back that […]

Star Trek Anthology

You’re probably looking at the title of this article and wondering what’s happening what’s happening in the Star Trek Universe and what exciting movie/book spin off/ merchandise is available now. This is not really official Trekkie stuff but some unofficial fan movie type stuff. They’re at the end of their Kickstarter campaign and would like […]
