SEX SELLS – So Do Books….

No, I’m not going to tell you how to write a good sex scene. But I have been thinking about this for a couple of weeks and as it is a rather controverisal subject I kept my twitching typing fingers at bay. Now however, I feel ready to talk about it….Sex that is…..Well, Sex inContinue reading “SEX SELLS – So Do Books….”

Characterisation and Causation

I have been challenged recently and thought I would share the challenge with you all. The challenge I have faced is in reference to writing characters. The thing is, I guess one has to learn that one cannot simply decide that their hero is going to be broody and cynical because that’s attractive and that’sContinue reading “Characterisation and Causation”

What People Think Pt 2

Do you know what? I was going to write something expanding on this comment my good friend Clare left on this post about caring what people think. When I re-read it however, I realised that Clare had already said it far better than I would and it would be good just to post her commentContinue reading “What People Think Pt 2”

I don’t care what you think….much

I’m not blogging about any of this Valentine’s day claptrap! Just kiddin’, but seriously, I’m not….I’m going to blog about something intrinsic to the majority of human beings – It is interesting that we all care what people think isn’t it? ….scratch that…..It’s ANNOYING! Why is it that we are exactly what Mumford & SonsContinue reading “I don’t care what you think….much”

6048 Hours

Thanks to the idea in my last post, in 6048 Hours = 252 Days = 36 weeks = 9 months… Well actually, seeing as it’s February already I’m giving myself 8 months = 32 weeks = 224 days = 5376 hours to write a minimum of 3 books but hopefully more…. Impressive? Well, only ifContinue reading “6048 Hours”

I have an unusual attachment to my loo

Now, it’s not some weird type of gross problem. Honestly. If anything that title should make you chuckle and hopefully, if you’ve had a pants day, it’s brought a smile to your face. But I am totally serious. I have a weird type of attachment to my bathroom (notice I changed from loo…I’m not tellingContinue reading “I have an unusual attachment to my loo”

The First In A Series

Hey, so I’ve realised that writing a book is hard. It’s really quite hard. Now I’m not exactly talking about scrawling a few lines down that you happened to think sound nice. Or even writing half a book before getting side-tracked or bored. I’m talking about writing a whole entire novel, reading, re-reading, revising, re-revisingContinue reading “The First In A Series”

3D Writing

Isn’t it interesting that we associate different smells with different things? The other day I was cycling home and, weirdly, I could suddenly smell coconut. It was like the coconut that you have in a moisturiser but for me, it reminded me of sun-cream. It reminded me of that coconut sun-cream you used to get and squirt outContinue reading “3D Writing”
