June 23rd, 2012 3 comments

I have two stories waiting for edits. I need to keep them moving, but I don’t want to stop writing new material. How can I juggle my projects more effectively? Read more…

Writing at Night

August 27th, 2011 3 comments

I have been considering working at night. Since the bubba came I am dog tired. But it’s surprising how much you can do on little sleep. So here’s what I’ve been thinking – I have to get up around 3 in the morning anyway to feed the boy. Why not stay up an extra hour and get some writing done? Read more…

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I would try and set some time aside to finally finish something. It didn’t go according to plan, but in trying to carry on in what little time I had, something really hit me – editing takes AGES! Read more…

Just to be clear, this post is not about interactive fiction, but a reflection on the last few weeks. Read more…

Slowly slowly, catchy novel(y)

By cripes and jiminy, my novel is coming on slowly! This is fine in a way. Once completed it will be the first novel I have penned ’til the end. But it doesn’t half create some uncertainty. Read more…

5 great posts on finding time to write

March 27th, 2010 No comments

Time. A lack of time seems to be the bane of everyone’s lives. For those struggling to write, it’s one of the first and most vital problems to solve. Unless you give up the day job, carve out plenty of alone time away from your partner, freinds and kids, and maintain a healthy level of discipline, it’s a problem that’s not likely to ever get completely solved (even if you do manage all of those things, you still have to fit in time to promote yourself and your books).
