Re: NiaD X

Done a bit of homework for you, lads: No internet (not till August 1991). No Text messages (December 1992). Mobile phones, yes, but they were just, you know, phones. For phoning people. Hmph. My opening line goes back to the drawing board. I am trying to get my head around public sector contracts :...

Re: NiaD X

People will be complaining that they couldn't get started until 6pm because they had to binge watch the entire Peter Jackson LotR movie series before they could get writing!!!! :) The movies are not canon, so such an activity would be anathema. My favourite approach I've seen to that is in Michael ...

Re: NiaD X

Why couldn’t we have had a nice fantasy about wizards, something like the Hobbit or Lord of The Rings? Everyone in all the stories done over the past 10 years has been a hobbit wizard. They just don't like to talk about it. The honest answer is that I'm intimidated by the sheer amount of world buil...

Re: NiaD X

Well... it is unlikely that I'm really good, so the work must be absolute sh!t. But Piggy has my chapter submission. I swear he's giving me the easy ones. By far my shortest submission to date at 1257 words (I think my last one was nearly 5k). There are no easy chapters! :D In fact I woke up to fin...

Re: NiaD X - Does Joe imitate art, or does art imitate Joe?

I smoked a cigar with a lifelong friend who more or less lives the life of one of the characters in my brief. Not sure if that helps or hinders the journey? Like a writing instructor said many moons ago, "Change the names, change the looks. That's how friends get into books." We'll see if...
