This Time!


This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything.

The Book (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)

This little fella sits atop my monitor. It came from an event at the RWCMD in which I discussed my writing goals. While I might dream of being a writer for Doctor Who, if I could only get my script beaten into shape, I set a more realistic goal of earning a living by writing by 2020.

As you can see this is the classic five year plan. In five years Captain Kirk set of to explore the galaxy – I am one year into this, well almost, and have made no progress.

I do think I’m generally happier though – so that is at least something.

I live alone and could be said to be the classic single man. Basically my flat can often be a mess. I maintain it’s the goblins but nobody believes me. I’ve been off work this week and the flat is looking good – even good enough for mum to come round.

With a tidy flat it’s a little easier to focus on writing. Otherwise I end up looking at the disaster area of the kitchen and have to clean all day. So yes this will be the year where things happen.

If you’ve found this blog interesting please tell your friends. I really want to try and grow it – and if you’re a blogger who has managed to grow yours I’d love any quick tips you may have in how to bring more people here.

Thank you for reading.


I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
