I’m pleased to report survival of the Festive Season. It wasn’t a time I was looking forward to. Although it was not the first Christmas or New Year I’ve spent alone and […]
I'm blogging my way through the day to day angst of setting down one word after another in the pursuit of publication in its myriad forms. I am fascinated by how creative people can so often get in their own own way and how this impinges output. I am currently working on a non-fiction project centred around the issues of productivity for creatives. I also write short stories and flash fiction and freelance sometimes and have been known to write for food. My first book 'What We Didn't Say' is a collection of my best and most successful short stories and is available in print and Kindle formats via Amazon. I am also published by Ether Books Ltd digitally on their apps for Smartphones and tablets. I am also delighted to be one of the Writing West Midlands Room 204 cohort for 2014/15. By day I do something creativity sapping in operations management.
I have a dog, what writer doesn't? OK well, maybe the cat writer people have cats - anyway he's a Plotthound - what else? I write about him sometimes too. Occasionally I have a bit of a rant about life and other stuff, but mostly I write about writing, creativity and what I'm up to.

That’s NaNoWriMo done for another year I think, my word count is validated and I have some lovely and not so lovely words to work with. I enjoyed being a bit of […]
