Planning Out a New Novel Using Graphical Tools – Mindmaps, Image Boards, Web and Second Life

I’ve been working on planning out my latest novel over the last few days. This is a novel which for some time has been unable to be planned – in that it just doesn’t seem to ‘want’ any kind of plan or preparation to go down on paper. (In writing, at least). I got wise, [...]

So, Where Do You Write?

I was in a writing meeting the other night. It was 10pm my time, and the setting was in Second Life, in a nicely landscaped bay. The question came up – ‘Where do you Write?’ Taking the questioner literally (hello, Lukos) I answered – ‘Well, in second life, it’s a shack, and in real life [...]

Re-Planning Writing Projects [Environmental Factors]

I have just done an about shift on my fiction writing plans, due to the environment I find myself in. I’m uncertain how often this might happen to other writers, but it’s an interesting experience. My third novel – for many months, was calling to me to be written. It was based in large part [...]

Writing Group Virgin

(Title sung to the tune of ‘Beauty School Dropout’ in the Musical, Grease) Well, Alas did it to me, snuck me into a writer’s critique group under the pretense of going to hear a speaker on publishing in Second Life, and there I was, sitting and listening to her piece of work, and thinking – [...]

Story Reading As Against Story Writing

On Saturday I attended an in-world awards ceremony within Second Life. The event went incredibly wrong for me, but if interested you can read about my second life exploits predominantly now on another blog, Metaversally Speaking.

What to Wear?

Last Friday I attended – in Second Life, a full day story quest. I chose to go down the genre route of Murder Mystery, and had the nicest Friday of my busy life just going around the settings in the event, meeting other writers on the quest, and writing up my story. Today I have [...]
