  • Good Things Come to Those Who Wait!

    In writing, waiting can be good or bad depending on what point you’re at. If you’re waiting for that perfect idea to strike or for the “right” time to start writing that novel you keep talking about, then ask yourself if writing is really your thing. Sure, story ideas don’t magically come to everyone, but […]

  • A Fantasy in Darkness

    A Fantasy in Darkness

    Check out more from my Embracing Darkness series. Darkness consumes me in its obsidian, a welcome relief from the blinding light of day. It wraps me in its coldness, and I let it. A black veil draws closed another day, and here, in my stillness, I have only myself. I am free, yet Darkness traps […]

  • Happy Caturday!

    What does this have to do with wiring? I hear you ask. Not much. Just me sharing my sometimes helpful, sometimes unhelpful writing assistants.  Let’s start with Tiger Lily, my first cat I had on my own. I got her two weeks after I moved into my flat, and the only reason I waited that […]

  • Morning

    A beautiful morning poem by my friend Aby. Enjoy… Morning shrugs over the horizon Drags rays through pine and oak Mumbles birdsong through the wind And I stand awed Morning Image by FotoWorkshop at Picabay.com.

  • Pondering Publishing Processes!

    I’m still deciding if I want to self-publish or go for traditional. My novel is one line edit away from finished (as best I can finish it anyway) and there are things I need in place if I choose self-publishing, and it doesn’t hurt to read up on all the ins and outs of the […]

  • Great Writing Advice!

    Read more. Read less. Get writing books and learn as much as possible. Plan and outline everything. Just sit down and write. Honestly, even the best writing advice doesn’t work for everyone.  People regularly ask about the best writing advice on the writing website I’m on. So many people jump in with great thoughts and […]

  • Figuring out My Social Media and Scheduling My Blog Posts!

    Not very exciting news, but I’ve decided to start posting every Saturday and sometimes on Wednesdays if I have a lot to say. But it’s part of my I keep dipping into future marketing ideas like playing about with quirky logos or getting back on Instagram. I forgot I even had an account. Then there’s […]

  • Death Is Only the Beginning!

    It’s an old Egyptian saying, which makes sense if you believe in an afterlife. Life is fleeting, but an afterlife is infinite. Okay, ideology aside, I’m referring to fantasy or Sci-Fi stories where death is either an evolved state or temporary. It happens with people dying and getting turned into cyborgs, fighting their way back […]

  • Take Flight

    Take Flight

    Another story from Dreams of a Fantasist. The title was inspired by Lyndsey’s track, but the story is a Fantasist original. I run through the battlefield, dodging swinging swords as I go. My weapon long lost, the balance tips further in their favour. Blooded ground stretches out before me until it meets dark mountains beyond. […]

  • Freeing Clair

    Freeing Clair

    I once met a pianist who could play Clair de Lune. He played with such passion, such beauty that it brought me to tears. His love poured through his fingers and danced across ivory keys. My body moved to his melody in the only way I knew, and I danced for him. The Pianist and […]
