Poem-mas Day 9: Crucifixion

Poem-mas Day 9: Crucifixion

We’re almost at the end of the Ten Days of Poem-mas! Which is probably just as well, because my habitual erratic posting means I’m ill-suited to daily blogging and keep forgetting that such a thing exists. Fortunately it provides me with another way to procrastinate on writing my dissertation, but nevertheless I don’t think it’s something I’d ever do long term. Because it’s nearly Christmas, and I come from a Christian background, I thought I’d share one of my more…

Faith And Fiction

Faith And Fiction

Warning: this post contains discussion of religion and faith and stuff. I know 99% of the people who read this are mature and nice. Haters, go away. Yes, I consider myself a Christian. If you don’t, fine. But no hating, on me or anyone who comments on this post, whatever their views. — Sometimes I struggle to separate writing from real life. I struggle to work out which of the thoughts in my head are mine, and which belong to my characters….

Let Them Read

Disclaimer: I’m a Christian. I like to think I’m an open-minded, non-judgemental, nice person. Most people, when they hear I go to church, assume the opposite. Please don’t judge me before you know me because that is not nice :( I’m writing this post from the point of view of a 16-year-old brought up in a Christian family who thinks censoring books for religious reasons is stupid. Just in case that wasn’t clear enough by the end of it. In…

All You Need Is Love

All You Need Is Love

I guess I’m going out on a limb and doing something slightly controversial here. I’m a writer, and normally I talk about writing, or books, or Sherlock (because who can resist?). But today I’m going to talk about something a little more personal to me, and that’s my beliefs. In a YouTube video I took my few subscribers on a tour of my room and one commenter expressed surprise about the number of Christian books I had, as they hadn’t…

A Moment Of Realisation

A Moment Of Realisation

In the past I have gone Christmas shopping at Greenwich Market. I’ve wandered around the stalls, picked up and fingered pieces of home-made artwork, seen little things that I just knew were perfect for so-and-so, or found exactly the notebook that blah had asked for. It’s probably quite an expensive way of doing things, but if you have no idea what to get people then markets are ideal. You don’t have to choose a specific shop to go to, and…

“Jonty” interviews “delorfinde” – Protagonize Author Interviews

As posted on Protagonize on Saturday 27th November. (click link to read original) Hi. I’m Jonty Stern and I’ll be interviewing delorfinde, whom I believed to be the most prolific writer here on Protagonize until she humbly corrected me. (She’s still the second most, though!) You can check out delorfinde’s profile here: http://www.protagonize.com/author/delorfinde This interview was conducted in November 2010. 1) I think I’m right in saying you’ve written more than anybody else during the time you’ve been on this…
