Digital Writer’s Festival action

I’ve been greatly enjoying the Digital Writer’s Festival this week, and have closely followed and questioned in a number of panels. Very simply, it’s like being at a festival without having to travel. Using Twitter and Google Hangouts I’ve posed questions to publishers, writers and other figures and been able to get a lot out ...

On creativity and the early stages of the creative process

Yes, I think this may just be where I am. Hopefully a fair way through it, but not out of it yet. From a talk by Ira Glass. THE GAP by Ira Glass from frohlocke on Vimeo. Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Hold Steady new song

Hold Steady new song
I don’t care what anyone else thinks, I don’t care if it’s cool, not cool or somewhere in between, but The Hold Steady are my favourite band and they have been for quite a few years now. And after a four year hiatus, they’re back with a new song! Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Welcome to 2014

Don’t look back, always look forward… Haven’t blogged a lot recently, been quite busy just doing regular stuff, and I even have a few posts that are sitting in drafts that may or may not get finished. Plans for the year of course, some writing, some business, some keeping my current job (more on that ...

Nelson Mandela

From http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/12/10/1261556/-Nelson-Mandela-R-I-P Remembering Mandela’s words and deeds. There’s been a lot said about the passing of the great man this week of course, so I had to add something. The image about from DailyKos really highlights some of the great things he’s said, and some of the obvious reasons why he will always be remembered. What ...

The Day of the Doctor

The Day of the Doctor
Early start this morning for this big 50th anniversary show. We have a terrible ABC picture so it wasn’t the most perfect circumstance to watch, but it was exciting to be up for it anyway, knowing we were watching at the same time as millions of others in the world. We watched it for a ...

Happy birthday Ben!

Happy birthday Ben!
In our busy November of birthdays, baby Ben is the final player…. and now he’s a big two-year-old! Happy birthday Ben! You’re walking so well, eating so well, talking more, doing more and having as much fun as you can ever have. You’re a Thomas fan and a Wiggles far, and everything you watch with ...

Happy birthday to my dearest wife

Happy birthday to my dear wife Sallie. I’d add a picture here but she hates that, so needless to say I wish her a wonderful birthday and everything she could want. There were some interesting gifts today of course, but mostly it was fairly quiet. It’s an odd and busy time at the moment, but ...

Happy birthday Alex!

Happy birthday to the happiest 7-year-old there is, Alex T! Just like his older brother, Alex has to deal with an odd set of issues (completely different ones, mind you) but he is just so happy and eager and well-rounded about everything he takes on. Have a great day son 🙂 Our plan for today ...

One year on

You always say you can’t believe a year has passed since something important, but this time, I really can’t believe a year has passed. It’s been one year to the day since Will’s kidney transplant, since I was the donor, and since we were both in hospital. This precise time last year I was asleep ...
