Tip 2 for Writers – if, like me, you are editing your own work it pays to try different ways to remove yourself from what I call “creative fog”. I like to edit in the morning when I’m fresh. And then I create stuff using Photoshop for my series later in the day. During the…

Tip 1 for Writers – if you are stuck or tired take a break from your story or chapter or scene to clear your head. Write another chapter or scene, write freely (anything that comes to mind), listen to music and run scenarios (my fave), read the thing you are stuck on before you go…

Praeda Chronicles – A SciFi Spoof 3:29:02 PM Image by Me I wrote this story five years ago. It’s a tongue in cheek science fiction inspired after I watched Lord of the Rings. I thought to myself, “What would happen if the orcs won?” and “What happened to the orcs who ran away?” I began…

It’ll be a slow process building it up, and takes away from my writing time, but I want to share my story. Of course Log 1 Matter | Antimatter will be released…

10:11:22 PM Image by 1art11 from http://www.canstockphoto.com/space-15295417.html I’m working this week to prepare for the new year so that come 2016 I’m ready to finalize several works and start uploading them.
