Good evening, dear readers! It’s March, just about – is it just me, or is time moving very fast this year? (Sorry February post, I tried but I’ve been busy). This term I’ve still been doing flash fiction/ short stories in my Horror/ SF/ Fantasy module, but poetry has been taking up most of my […]Read more "Ad Verse effects"
Good afternoon, dear readers! Well, the first month of 2020 is almost over huh? It’s been 26 days and my vision still hasn’t become perfect, so I’m about ready to pack this whole thing in and start 2021. This attitude has nothing to do with two movies I finally got round to watching this week: […]Read more "Infinity mirrors"
Hello, dear readers! Been a while, hasn’t it? My sincerest apologies for not writing one of these for about 6 or 7 months; my summer was spent in aimless relaxation, September bought on the intense start to my second year of university, and the last month or two have been tumultuous for all sorts of […]Read more "I’ve been trailing behind"
Good afternoon dear readers. After plenty of pre-deadline anxieties, post-deadline finger crossing and post-post-deadline relaxation, I am back in the land of the productive! Recently, I’ve been mapping a rough timeline of my life. The exercise started as a running joke between a few friends, one of which told us last summer about his previously […]Read more "It’s about time"
This time of year is unfortunately busy for me – it’s deadline month (and a bit)! Starting with a short radio play due today, which I’ve been working on for the last few weeks (not quite “The Archers” fare) I’ve also got a chunky essay, two portfolios and a workshop diary due between now and […]Read more "Deadlines and fake lions"
I’m really not used to writing scripts anymore. It’s sad but true. Back when I was a wee lad (by which I mean about 6-7 years ago) I could remember the “proper” formatting for stage and screen scripts, but delving into our drama module recently has made me realise I hadn’t focused on script-writing […]Read more "Let’s make some noise"
Good evening readers! An unfortunately tiring and busy couple of weeks have delayed this frightfully short blog entry! Last week we looked at “Found Literature” with a focus on Erasure (no, not that one). The idea behind Erasure (not that one) is taking an existing text and simply erasing parts of it with the aim […]Read more "Sorry, no synth-pop"
Happy New Year, dear readers! After a relaxing Christmas/ New Year break and a stressful few weeks of coursework and an essay, I am back to university and my blog. Lectures and my evening class only resumed this week so I don’t yet have the inspiration for any writing posts: hopefully they will resume soon […]Read more "Overcoming the Parker Luck: A review of/ ramble about Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4)"
Well this is it, folks. The moment I never thought I’d see. The closing of my first term at University. Evening classes are done, only one lecture and one seminar left for learning (and one pesky coursework deadline, which I’m only losing some sleep over). I’ll be heading home for a week or so over […]Read more "Sweet goodbyes"
Oh dear, I see we’re off to a good start with a lie in the title. Well, for a very long month I have lapsed in updating this blog – the unexpected freedom of a reading week, the inevitable destruction of the finely-crafted sleeping pattern and the release of a new video game are all […]Read more "I am great at routines"
