Today marks the beginning of the second week of my thesis. The first week didn’t feel that much different from any other first week of a course. If anything, it felt more relaxed. I only had to post twice in an online journal, which only my advisor could view. The thesis’ course calendar looks sparse … Continue reading Thesis – Week 1
For being a self-proclaimed sufferer of hypergraphia, my website is embarrassingly sparse. A few snippets of prose, short stories, the ubiquitous unclassifiable ramblings, sometimes labelled as poetry. And, well, not much else. So as I sit here, looking forlornly at the calendar to see just how many days of freedom I have left (the answer … Continue reading An Open Letter to Friends Long Gone(?)
How many more stories do I have in me? Will I live long enough to tell them all? Just the important ones? #TuesdayNightMuse - &i
I took this post straight from my Facebook page, so, apologies if you've already seen it on my timeline. Back in April of 2007, a good friend of mine and I were lucky enough to meet the legend known as Alan Sydney Patrick Rickman. He was incredibly gracious, patient (there were a lot of … Continue reading The Voice of God.

The site is dedicated to providing a new piece of sci-fi flash every day of the year. Mine was posted on December 31st, officially the last of 2015. If you want to … Continue reading Goodbye 2015!
About to see Crimson Peak. I dare say it will inspire. 🙂 Big news! I have committed to NaNoWriMo this year, and am already at around 12,000 for my project, "Infernal". You can read a snippet of it on its page. If you're signed up for NaNoWriMo, find me (The_Cicatrix) and I promise to motivate … Continue reading Antici….pation.
It's days like today that make me very glad I have Hans Zimmer, Hamilton Cleverdon, Steve Jablonsky and David Arkenstone on my playlist for the drive home. If it was nothing but Slade, Nightwish, Kamelot, AC/DC and Dark Moor, I'd be bankrupt from speeding tickets. #WorkInCustomerServiceForADayAndYoullSeeWhatIMean 😦 Muse, oh Muse, where have you and Time … Continue reading Relax…is not a word I’m familiar with.
Some people fail to see the difference between those first two, and nearly everyone is guilty of believing the last. - andi
I'll get to share my next chapter of Infernal with my workshop peers this week. So. Stoked! 😀
I drown readers in details. I admit it. My first draft of a chapter in a WIP novel of mine, which documents an event that gets the ball of the story rolling (or I should say, "apple" rolling...there's a hint,) was absolutely saturated with adverbs and adjectives. Dripping. Revising it was one of the most painful … Continue reading Still wrestling with this.
