It's been a week or so. I am still around. Go me.

one. life updates

(People's personal lives are my favourite thing about journals. Pls skip if that is not you.)

I am (a) no longer teaching (short answer: "I like teaching, I don't like being a teacher"), (b) not entirely true, I'm tutoring maths and English, and teaching creative writing to kids and teens some weekends, (c) I'm also doing temp bar work. Which would be fine if it weren't for people, (d) I'm also doing an MA in writing for young people starting September. Very much looking forward to meeting a load of weirdos like me and hanging out with them for a year. And writing, obvs. (e) Right now I'm using all my free time to develop games. My skill set is also very much in development. And as a writerly type I am focusing on Visual Novels...

two. online updates


Playing lots of indie games, visual novels, story rich games is proving great fun. Making them is even funnerer.

I recently started a blog, which could reasonably be described as a game blog for book people. It is on both wordpress and tumblr at the moment, (though I might give up on the wordpress side, if tumblr proves enough. Updating twice is a pain).

three. dA things

I've written a response to FlashFictionLives' latest prompt. Tbh, don't love my entry, but you guys might do better...

June promptThanks to those who participated in May's prompt. A feature will be up soon.
Here are the details for June:
a colour
an aquatic animal/creature/being
a tool
No word count parameters or anything tricky this month. We will have enough of that with July (Flash Fiction Month) coming up!
Good luck and I hope to see your submissions in before the end of June!

I'm a language hound. The minute I discovered a three letter word for lizard was EFT, I was hooked. However, I rarely have time for them now.
