Week two of NaNoWriMo is now over, the halfway point is passed. So, how has it been so far? Honestly, I think I have to say my main conclusion is that the amount of writing involved in NaNoWriMo is way beyond what I can do. Back when I worked in an office job I could... Continue Reading →
Oh My God! What a load of rubbish. Cheap plastic parts that do not go together properly, parts that break if you fit them as directed, a casing that snaps if you try to put it together. Before you say it - yes, I have built camera kits before. The Lomography Konstuktor and the Recesky... Continue Reading →

So, NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow. My account is set up (as archerctb) and I have finally, with a few hours to spare, picked what to write. Under the temporary title of The Fall I have decided to go with a historical about Ambrosius Aurelianus, considered to be one of the last defenders of Roman civilisation in... Continue Reading →
I was supposed to do some, wasn't I? Bugger.
