Living the Dream Part 17 (Words Aren’t Flesh)

The more astute of you will have noticed my absence in recent times. I’ve not quit blogging. I’d never just walk away without saying something first. No, I’ve been focussing all of my writing efforts on editing Revenge on the Spanish Main (aside from a short handwritten non-fiction story I penned recently that I plan … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 17 (Words Aren’t Flesh)

Fabian (Short Story)

Fabian Edmundson lay huddled under the covers. He couldn’t bring himself to climb out of the bed in his hotel room despite the fact that he should have been at his latest appointment ten minutes ago.

Richard took a look at his watch. He wasn’t quite sure why as time on the solar system’s largest moon was completely random; at least compared to the uniform timespans on earth.

Living the Dream Part 15 (Easily Distracted or Nervous Procrastinating?)

I’ve fallen behind again where my writing is concerned. I haven’t done nearly enough of it of late. Worse still, when I am doing it I’m not working on the one project that should be getting my undivided attention. I’ve also buggered up a bit. I promised myself that, after the last edit of Revenge … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 15 (Easily Distracted or Nervous Procrastinating?)
