Book Covers

On the way back from a day of meetings in London and thought I’d write up a blog post of where I’m now at with the book!

Writing My Novel: An Essay

Back in the winter of 2015, I attended a seminar for my English Literature class which started the wheel towards what I now have today. A very nearly completed novel. Sat amongst a largely mature classroom of fellow Open Uni students, we were given… Continue Reading “Writing My Novel: An Essay”

A Look Toward 2020

Judging by the dates of my previous posts, you’ll be right in assuming I’ve gone off the boil somewhat. Quite a bit actually. I’ve dabbled in blogging here and there ever since my very long stint of book reviewing as TheNovelReviewer and TheLordOfTheReads. I’d… Continue Reading “A Look Toward 2020”

Easter Special: A new roommate named Jesus [Reddit Original]

An excellent writing prompt I found on Reddit. It’s be an extraordinarily long time since I posted here. I’ve been productive though, not to worry! A small thing called a novel stumbled out of my head and it’s all on ‘paper’ now. So there’s… Continue Reading “Easter Special: A new roommate named Jesus [Reddit Original]”

Rhododendrons [University Project]

I initially wrote this for an assignment on my degree. Completing my literature/creative writing BA, I was tasked with writing a piece of fiction and decided upon this. I want to take this further, given the fact I felt 1,500 was too little a… Continue Reading “Rhododendrons [University Project]”

The Time Travelling Reaper [Reddit Original]

“What do you mean, it’s a bad idea? It’s a fantastic idea!” “Winston, is it any wonder why this has been disapproved by the entire board. It’s not ready!” “Blimey, who put your dong in a thong? They’re pessimists, Alfred, pessimists. The science is… Continue Reading “The Time Travelling Reaper [Reddit Original]”

The F*cker [Reddit Original]

NSFW:  Another rushed piece I didn’t have time to finish. Busy with the new job! Like the previous, I’ve drawn from Stephen King massively. I also get inspiration from the likes of Jo Nesbo and even Dean Koontz who has a particular way of… Continue Reading “The F*cker [Reddit Original]”

The Three Scavengers [Reddit Original]

Another piece from [WP] on Reddit. I now write there under the name Book_Wizard. This one needs a bit of editing but needed to post it up on here for the time being. I want to focus on Spring Town. Hope you enjoy! No… Continue Reading “The Three Scavengers [Reddit Original]”

Springtown

The sun was shining, the bees were buzzing and Mr and Mrs Wonder were butchering their 12 year old son into a bloody mash. Speckles of blood jumped up from each devastating blow, showering the side of the house red and the fronts of… Continue Reading “Springtown”

Drippy the Rain Drop

Here’s a short-story about a rain drop called Drippy. I wrote it in an alarmingly short space of time when I was huddled inside my families craft shop. My imagination suddenly sparked. I could write about anything. Anything my Nan asked? What about a… Continue Reading “Drippy the Rain Drop”
