Interim Report

1 November, 2018 (08:41) | Dead Water, Goggle-eyes, Holidays, Sense8, Writing | By: Ian Burdon

Since the previous post we’ve had a lovely break in Portugal, which I might write about sooner or later. My TV viewing has been a mixed bag. I watched season 3 of The Man In The High Castle and enjoyed it. A Discovery of Witches is making its way to the end of the first […]

The Writing Thing

20 September, 2018 (22:08) | Writing | By: Ian Burdon

It’s painfully obvious that I haven’t written anything here since July. However in the background, when not occupied with work things, I have completed the initial draft of a novel. There is a long way to go until it is in anything like a presentable state, but I’m please that I actually did it. 130,000 […]

I take as my text…

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m in the process of writing the first draft of a novel. The protagonist is a priest and I spent part of the weekend drafting a sermon. I haven’t done this for a long time, since 1979 I think, so it was fun rather than a chore. In the process of […]

All quiet since my last. Aside from the day job, I’m 39,000 words into the first draft of the novel I’m writing. it’s nothing like I originally thought it might be, but that’s OK and I’m enjoying myself. I have kept myself entertained with several movies. I mentioned last time Bladerunner 2049 and various versions […]

Write about what you know

23 October, 2017 (00:30) | Dead Water, Writing | By: Ian Burdon

I’m writing a novel. I tried doing this a while back but got nowhere and instead wrote a heap of short stories, two of which have found publishers. I would be happy to stick with the short stories but, at the risk of being precious, you go where the story takes you. I’m not making […]

Juvenilia 2

8 August, 2017 (22:41) | Writing | By: Ian Burdon

Further to my last, I now have the files of my old blog duly converted into up to date code and even put into a better chronological order. I haven’t quite worked out what I’m going to do with them here but you’ll be the first to know. A big thanks to Malcy for both […]

I’ve mentioned previously that I still have all the old files from my original blog, but didn’t really have time to convert them to be readable by recent browsers. This was read by an old chum who has offered to weave his magic with the files for me, so that I can, in time, load […]
