Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 12 (Grammar)

Welcome back to my on-running series. I hope you like the new title image. As much as I like the quote from the old one I figured I'd freshen up the image and keep it simple. On my recent break from blogging, I took the decisive step of refreshing myself as regards grammar. This is … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 12 (Grammar)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 10 (Novelist’s Itch)

In the past week or two my inner novelist has been threatening to burst from within me. I’m getting a real massive urge to work on my big project, The Escapades of William Hart, again. The first instalment, Revenge on the Spanish Main, still needs touching up on the terminology front, but I began working on … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 10 (Novelist’s Itch)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 9 (Terminology)

Welcome to the latest addition to my Living the Dream series; delving into all things literary in my life.

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 8 (For the Love)

Of late I’ve been really struggling to come up with a theme for this particular blog series. Those who have been keeping up with Living the Dream will know that it centres around my past, present and future as a reader and writer and has encompassed many themes that centre around all of those things. … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 8 (For the Love)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 7 (Blogging)

My structured style of posting has gone totally skew-whiff. I’ve done this on purpose in part as the rigmarole of coming up with themes for certain things was becoming somewhat tedious. I’ve decided to relax on that front and basically post what I want and when I feel like it. I’d like to apologise to … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 7 (Blogging)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 6 (Confidence & Paranoia)

Any Red Dwarf fans amongst you may notice the subject of this post is the title of an episode from series one. I felt it was an apt title. I touched on confidence as being intermittently linked with motivation in Living the Dream Part 3. It’s true; I think the pair go hand in hand. … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 6 (Confidence & Paranoia)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 5 (Locations)

Welcome to the fifth instalment of the series that takes a deeper look into my story writing and reading ventures past, present and future.

I think it’s a fairly obvious thing to say that … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 5 (Locations)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 4 (Editing)

Hello and welcome to the fourth instalment of Living the Dream; the series that delves into my dealings where reading and, more pertinently, writing are concerned. For the first three of this series (actually for every single post to date) I prewrote them so that I could fine-tune when it came time to post. However, on … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 4 (Editing)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 3 (Motivation)

Thank you for coming along and checking out the third instalment of my writing journey. In today’s Living the Dream, I’ll be picking apart something that has at various different stages been both a great friend and a bitter enemy. It’s more a mental impactor than a physical one, but it’s also perhaps the most … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 3 (Motivation)
