Where The Liftwood Fails

I rather missed the boat publicising this one. I was away in Laos with my wife, soaking up history and atmosphere for a new one-woman show that she's working on, and Every Day Fiction published a piece of my Flash Fiction.

I had a lot of fun writing Where The Liftwood Fails, and I hope you enjoy reading it just as much.

Cutting It Fine

May was a fun month for me. I had a piece of flash fiction, Bodyshop, published in Every Day Fiction on the 5th and then a short story, Cutting It Fine, appeared in Electric Spec on the 31st.

Blissful Writing

The options for writing your novel in the cloud are improving all the time, but the combination that I'm happiest with at the moment is Novlr with Workflowy open in a separate window.

There are web apps out there that have more features, but there's a beauty and simplicity to Novlr that I love. As you start to type, the toolbars fade away, leaving you with just your words.

A Storyboard in the Cloud

I'm continuing my exploration of the options available to writers with a Chromebook, or anyone else who wants to use only applications that are available in the Cloud.

Spaaze is the most enjoyable way to storyboard your plot that I've found so far. It's got a good cork background and the interface takes up very little screen space, so you can browse your scene cards without distraction.
