Writing Progress

This year I once again had a go at the NaNoWriMo challenge of writing a book/50,000 words in the space of 30 days. I bent the rules somewhat this time around, using the 50k to finish off Some Other Scotland (yes, at last, I know!), write several short stories for both Every Photo Tells… and


After some fine-tuning of the music from the ‘10 Weeks : 10 Sounds‘ project, I have compiled it into an album that is now ready to download from Bandcamp. The music is embedded on the right-hand side of this site, so you can listen to most of the tracks before downloading for a very reasonable

Pushing Forty

For the final weekend of NaNoWriMo I’m pleased to have hit the 40,000 word mark – a milestone worthy of comment, I think. That leaves only 10,000 words to hit the NaNo goal, but I think, from progress so far, that it will take up to 60,000 words to finish the story. Since it took

NaNo Halfway

The halfway mark for NaNoWriMo has passed and I am pleased to say that I have managed to stay on target. The little chart here shows a couple of yellow and orange days, which are those where the daily target was not quite reached, but that was balanced out be the days when I wrote

The idea is to give people a taste of some of

Some Other Podcast

Between Every Photo Tells…, Wiener Blut and numerous other activities, my attention to Some Other Scotland has been spread rather thin of late. Okay, very thin. I am in the process of sorting this out. First of all, a new episode of the podcast series was posted yesterday and it features something that was set

A Year of Stories

This weekend we hit two milestones over at Every Photo Tells…. First of all, we published our fiftieth short story on the podcast. That’s rather impressive, considering that we would have been happy to have been publishing our twentieth by this stage and that is due to the writers who have been inspired by our

A Share of the Golden Age

If you have been following Some Other Scotland and/or Every Photo Tells… and are looking for more podcast fiction, then I can recommend Nathan Lowell’s Tales from the Golden Age of the Solar Clipper. The ‘Share’ series of stories concluded yesterday, though there will be more stories in the future set in the same universe.
