"I am glad your day is brighter. I think when people suffer from depression writing is one of the best outlets. I also think it is great to be part of a blog or a community because you can be social and antisocial at the same time. It is good to…"

"Thank you both.  The fear is unpleasant. I do get the irony of not writing to be published yet broadcasting things on a writing blog. Perhaps it's more complex. I think it's more likely that I don't feel the need to write for an…"

When darkness falls

I think I'm coming out of the darkest period of depression I've had in years. Luckily, it was short lived, although it killed off any enthusiasm I had for the current WIP.I don't write to be published. I'm far too shy to expose myself in that way, too terrified to be vulnerable and have the words ripped to shreds and dreams shattered. I write for myself. I write because I enjoy reading what I've written. I write because I love it and I love my characters and ideas. They make me feel human and…See More

Writing and things

I write, but daren't call myself a writer.  

Sometimes I pretend my writings are proper novels, and they are. Novels in the early stages, with hard work to be done.

I do the blog thing at www.muddledmanuscript.co.uk and Kristina Writes

Hello, 99fiction.net

Posted on June 2, 2013 at 2:12 0 Comments

This year I have decided to take my writing more seriously. Not that writing isn't usually Serious Business anyway, it's just that this year,  I promised I would do it properly, whatever the hell that means.

So far, I've finished the first draft of last year's NaNoWriMo  novel, written the first draft of a romance novel and I'm currently working on the end of the first draft of  my camp NaNoWriMo  novel from April.

Seems all I'm doing is generating more writing.

But it's…

I'm still working at the story-a-week thing, and keeping up with it so far. One thing I'm wondering is who I should show them to to get feedback. Some of these I want to put in the novel/collection…Continue

Title Advice?

Posted by Daniel Hale on December 14, 2015 at 18:29 0 Comments

I just completed, as near as I can tell, my first book: a collection stories disguised as a novel. I do currently have a working title that I was initially happy with, BUT it may now be too obscure or inapplicable.

The title as it is now is "The Psalterdemalion." This is a combination of two of my favorite words: Psalter, which is a small book of psalms, and Tatterdemalion, which is a man dressed in multicolored rags and tatters. My thinking was that the man character, a story thief,…

Final Stretch for my First Project

Posted by Daniel Hale on November 16, 2015 at 2:41 0 Comments

So I've got my stories together for my first collection, and am currently working on the connecting narrative. I haven't even thought yet how I'm gonna get this published. Gotta start thinking what I need to do.

Mark stood on a sea cliff top. A wave below roared in and sprayed out a ferocious impact. Its retreat left a glistening carpet of foamy shale. To his left, a slender figured girl appeared, dressed only in a skimpy black nightie. Her blonde…
