How’s it going?

Well, how’s it going for you?

For me over the last few days I have achieved some stuff. I finished the raw draft of my writing project and am now having serious doubts about its validity as good writing. I will have to see what James says.

I just added a quick sub-page (?) to the Poetry page. Check it out.

I am at present reading “News 2.0” by Martin Hirst. It is an interesting read about…well, the cover says ‘Can journalism survive the Internet’. I’ve only just started but all ready find there is a lot to think re the future of communication technology in general and journalism and news reporting in particular.

On shift early tomorrow so it’s goodnight from me.

Changes

Please note I have made changes to my Home page in an effort to make the text more legible. Please let me know if this does or doesn’t work. It has taken me all morning so it had better be better.

I also made some changes to the About page.

I have put up the Title and Prologue for the Serial. I will put up Chapter 1 on 1st of April, then delete it and add the following chapters on the first of each month. So you will have to look once a month if you want to keep up. Please be sure to comment if you get confused or there is stuff you don’t understand.

The Writing Project

I am well into completing the necessary word count. It is working, I think, but I guess we will have to see what James thinks. I hope this is the beginning of a publishable novel. Lots of work to do yet, though. I wonder if I should let on at this stage what it is about. Not a full synopsis, you understand, but something to whet your appetite and make you look forward to reading the final thing. Hmmmmm…

Speaking of novels, I will post the serial title and the prologue soon, then start the novel proper in April. I am so nervous!

If you are a writer looking for a good guide book try “The Little Red Writing Book’. I am using it to go to sleep at night. No, no. that sounds all wrong. I mean, it is the last thing I read at night. Sorry Mark.There is another book of the same title, about the same subject matter by someone else but I haven’t read that one. I’m talking about the one by Mark Tredinnick. It is wise, useful, easy to read and to the point. I would be interested to hear about the other one though if you’d like to comment.

So, I’m all ready falling behind

I know, but I have been working hard behind the scenes e.g. I have just added a gravatar after clipping it from another photo and adding background colour.

I have been working hard on my writing project for Uni and it is coming along nicely. I went to writers’ group last night and recieved some good suggestions. If you are a writer you should consider joining a writers’ group or if there isn’t one near you start one. Seriously, it is a great way to get feed-back, though a little confronting at first. But, if everyone gives constructive criticism there is a lot to be learned. Also join your state, region or national writers Group. I belong to WINQ’s (Writers in North Queensland. We are not an Incorporated Society just a loose group of people interested in all aspects of writing), also QWC (Queensland Writers’ Centre, have a look. It’s great.)

Re: the serial story – my plan is to post a portion each month then delete it and add another so if you want to follow you will have to make sure you keep track. I am busy doing a final, final edit so will post at the beginning of next month. April Fool’s Day…that would be right! Lol!
