A blog about everything I love! From Astronomy to music and everything in between. I cover 'sudoscience' - We've got aliens, and conspiracy theories, disclosure, want to ascend? Me too..... Then I spin it the whole other way and give you 'factual science' with cool stuff I've been learning at university. I share choice music, books, funny websites, silly hobbies, people, fun and food. Join me on a crazy ride through my life on this wonderful planet we call Earth!

I've been busy on some other projects and have been neglecting this blog again. You will be happy
to know that I have been doing lots of writing despite not uploading much here in the way of incite-full writing tips etc and hopefully I will get to start working on more of my third novel Ally in Disguise. It's such an amazing book and I can't wait to get back into it. I need more hours in the day and probably better focus but I'll get there eventually.
Reading is a vital tool
Reading shows me wonderful prose, which makes me cry into my cereal because I may never match it, but it spurs me on to do at least half as well. Bad writing will show you what not to do. When you read, ask yourself what makes this particular book good or bad. See what you like or dislike. Feel your way through language to see what sort of writing moves you. This does not mean you should copy anyone, copying someone’s style might fool some people for one book, but the soulessness of pure plagiarism will soon shine through. Be the best writer you can be, from your heart and soul.

Reading is a way of sharpening your mind
By osmosis, you’ll absorb structure, grammar and style. An editor can always spot the people who don’t read their manuscript – they’re the ones with random use of capital letters and no clue how to lay out a page of dialogue.
There’s no magic potion or routine – you have to get your bum on the seat and write. Everyone has a different way of sitting down to write and you have to find your way or routine.

I fucking hate cleaning. It's the Bain of my existence and I have to do it every day! Sweeping, washing, packing, unpacking, wiping, dusting FUCK that!
Surely there is more to life than having a clean house.... I've got way better things to be doing with my time and I can't fathom having to do these mundane tasks forever.
Someone fucking invent something to rectify the situation.... I'm loosing it! The Jetsons promised me stuff that the world hasn't delivered...seriously get it together inventors and give the people what they want!!!!!
