Inkymindset is here

Hoorah. I have finally advanced my blog by treating it to a domain name via GoDdaddy. By paying just a relatively small fee, I now have a blog that can be found by simply type in the blog name. That kind of gives me a buzz, knowing that I'm on the world wide web in more of an official capacity. The first thing I did was search for my blog on Google; after I figured out the instructions for the domain set up process. My brain received a minor frazzling.

I thought I would announce the change of blog address to follow on from last weeks blog name change announcement post. Phew. Now there's a mouth full. As I've said the process was a tricky one at times with plenty of flitting back and forth between different tutorials. And the odd bit if cursing from me. But like with any daunting process, once it's done and dusted you end up questioning why it seemed so difficult in the first place. However, for anyone who is thinking of purchasing a domain name for their blog I will put together a painless tutorial in my next post. I will certainly try my best to avoid the technical jargon. I know that is something that I appreciate myself at times. Actually, most of the time. Next time I will also list some of the benefits of purchasing a domain name for your blog. That's all for now. Until next time.

A Few Writing Tips Before Christmas Hits

OK. So that title doesn't quite have the ring to it I had hoped for. But what the hey. I'm not here to impress you all with a fancy title. Although that sort of thing can help from time to time. Ahem. Anyway my intention with this weeks blog is to talk a bit about my up and coming novel and to hopefully dish out a few writing tips. Hopefully of the useful variety.

Right then. Let's get off to a good start. I have to confess that my story has been put on the back burner for the past couple of weeks. Writer block strikes again. It's easier to procrastinate than to write. Well, ninety percent of the time anyway. Of course, watching Rogue One generated enough excitement to take me away from the writing process for quite some time. For a day at least. And with Christmas almost upon us it's going to get tougher. But I'm not one to give up easily. So with that in mind I thought I would put on my serious writing glasses (y'know, the bifocal type) and pass on a few …

Book Deadline: update from last post

Update; book launch

Right then. Let's get this mini blog off the starting blocks. Because I'm an idiot. You may or may not agree. The choice is yours. Ahem. I have failed to offer a date as to when I'm putting up the draft pages of my novel. So I've asked for feedback on my novel but no one knows when to expect the drafty bits of my story to emerge on this blog. So I apologise for that. Now then, the date I will give for the release of the first three chapters of my novel is. . .  big drum roll. . . 15th of April. So I have just over four weeks to get those chapters all cleaned up and in ship shape condition.

So as I've already said, feel free to offer up some constructive criticism. I know that's not an easy task since all creative work is open to interpretation. And ultimately it's a matter of taste. So to simplify all this I'll go with the tried and tested line, if it reads like a book, it must be a book. At least I think it goes something like that.…

A Post Christmas Blog, What A Slog

Now that the Festive season is well and truly over, it's time to turn our noses up at the stodgy food, suck in the old belly and get down to some serious life related stuff. Now I'm not one to shy away from a bit of hard work but lately this writing lark has got me stumped. I'm at a complete standstill with my novel writing and I don't like it. Before Christmas I was on top of it, blazing through those pages at the speed of light. Well, that didn't last long. I've slacked off somewhat, so much so that I'm finding it difficult just reading my story. Concentration is the key, but right now I seem to be lacking in that particular key area. If I'm going to stick to the release date for my novel, I will have to do some serious knuckling down of the putting words to paper variety.

The Master Plan That Wasn't
