The Wattpad Experiment

Not long before Christmas, I learnt about Wattpad.  Granted, I’m pretty late to the party since Wattpad has been around for well over ten years.  That said, if your reaction is a lot like mine:

‘What now, what pad?’

Then allow me to enlighten you…

Wattpad is a site where writers post their stories – for free – and members read them – for free.

Margaret Atwood wrote a really moving article about it for the Guardian – so if you want to know more I encourage you to head there.

Anyway, the point of this post is to declare that I have decided to make my novel available on Wattpad – at least for a short while.

I am uploading around three chapters a week.  So – if you would like to read my odd little sci-fi novel then come and join the party 🙂

You can find my book here: Intergalactic Fly-Fishing

Happy 2019

Happy New Year folks!

I’m not one for resolutions as such… but I do like to reflect a bit on the year gone by. And it’s been a year alright.

Started blogging regularly. Well. Mostly regularly.

    • Made a few text-adventure games
      Finally built my Lego Millennium Falcon:
  • So… for 2019?

    • The second season of Diary of a Space Archivist
    • The next picture book, and maybe another after that
    • Another novel…

    That’s probably enough to be going on with…

    Here’s hoping.

    Here’s to you all. Here’s to 2019.
