I have been less than productive of late and just haven’t felt like working on any of my books. I am trying to finish off Exiles as that is the first of the phase #0 books, but I am just getting nowhere. In a fit of boredom I have been trying out some 3D Art and the following images are just my playing around.
The manuscript that inspired these images is far from complete and I was hoping to have finished it by now, however, depression is a nasty condition and I just constantly feel down about my lack of artistic ability to get things from brain to paper.
I have a few days leave and hope it will help me out.
I also have a meeting with another Writer soon called Liz Hill and am looking forward to that. For the next few days I will be down in Windsor (UK) so keep a look out for a bloke with a black hoody with a large white skull on the back and the slogan “Deploy, Dominate, Disappear.”
That is all for now.
See you in port soon my fellow Rouges and Airship Captains.
I have been looking more and more into setting up a Patreon account for my Steampunk/Victorian Fantasy series The Diaries of James Purcell.
When I think of rewards levels I feel confused. I have settled on one of two reward levels based on a monthly donation system, but now need you thoughts.
£3.00 pcm – Name listed in both digital and print as a Patron as well as access to the Patreon blog and Members area of the new site (when I get the UI sorted out)
£5.00 pcm – The above +free digital copy when available.
£10.00 pcm – The above+ free paper copy.
£15.00 pcm – All of the others except that the paperback will be signed and come with a special free gift.
Originally I was going to lower the levels but as with all things, the parts for the free gift are not available anymore and have to pick more expensive versions.
So having never done this before, what do you say?
Please drop me a message and let me know what your view is?
The only time I will not allowed a message is if it’s trolling or spam so please feel free to have your say.
When I was in school I didn’t enjoy it, everything bored me and my grades were low to nothing.
He has the ability to do great things if he put his mind on it and concentrated more
This was the story of my life, and I left school with noting even remotely close to useable grades and swore that I would never write anything.
Years passed and in a bout of boredom I went back to college and retook my english exam’s and ended up with grade “C”.
On top of that I also sat a Japanese online course (wasn’t a JNPL so didn’t really count) and passed it with 97% pass grade!
What is the point of all this?
My writing is still terrible and I still struggle to remember spellings but the biggest thing is that I often loose attention to a project (ouu squirrel!) and having published a novel is a master achievement (have 2 more waiting for a rewrite) the point is that I have always had a great imagination and writing has given me a chance to let it out and have something to focus on!
If you also are affected the same as me, try writing, I don’t actually write a book from start to finish, but instead write in a haphazard fashion only compiling it into something resembling a story near the end.
don’t give up, just keep trying until you find that thing that keeps you drawn.

A son who was told not to bother trying, but to leave before the exams. Now has his own business and has shown he may have dyslexia but he isn’t dyslexic. It no more defines him than the spot on my backside makes me spotty. Excuse the analogy. Great for doing what my son has done. Finding your way around despite the blindfold. Loads of luck with your book
