I Had the Time of My Life Fighting Dragons With You

June 27, 2014 by

There is no official video clip for this song. Which means I’m totally justified in giving you this one instead.* I still remember this moment In the back of my mind The time we stood with our shaking hands The crowds in stands went wild / And the cynics were outraged Screaming, ‘This is absurd!’ Cause for […]

Maybe I Can Write the Whole Thing in My Sleep…

May 29, 2014 by

Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night and start writing I mix things up. I’ll confuse homonyms, I’ll drop words out of sentences, I’ll imagine that I know anything at all about mixing glue. I’ll get my characters the wrong way around. I don’t know why I do this. I actually […]

I Don’t Have Your Number But I’d Like To

I have a question. If you were on a sports team (any kind of sport you like — hockey, cricket, ping-pong…) and you had to wear a number, what number would you choose? And why? Rick: Thirty-three. And then while they’re frustrated wondering where the point three recurring is, I can score. Me: So you’re […]

Me: I kind of want to make one of my characters a hockey player. Rick: (thoughtful silence) So then it’s research? Me: (laughing) See? You get me.

Incendiary Device

So you know how a couple of weeks ago when I first started thinking about the new book I said this story was really small? One character.* One drama. One POV. You remember when I said that? Turns out, I was wrong. Because there was a second character.** He’s always been there. Always been important. […]

Important Decisions Should Not Be Based on Laziness or ‘Because it’ll Make Me Laugh’

October 3, 2013 by

Right now I’m trying to figure out if this new story is in third person or first and if it’s about a boy or a girl because I’ve got chunks of text in basically every permutation. When I start writing something new I tend to simply use ‘he’ and she’ because it’s the easiest way […]

I Don’t Even Know Your Name

September 27, 2013 by

That lyric line ‘I don’t even know your name’ seems particularly pointed right now because I’m struggling to name the characters in this new book that I may be, might be writing. This song is kinda silly and if you read it straight I have some issues with the lyrics. Also the video clip is […]
