I dunno about you

but the QI Elf on the first episode (Alex Bell) is really damn cute.
Also, glad to see QI is back on again!
At this rate...

The next "40 Year Old Virgin" film will be made about me! :P
All of my siblings now have people they are dating, I'm beginning to feel like the odd one out. *dashes to okcupid*
I have a job - I hate it
Posted Aug 29, 2014
Factory work, beading windows. Crap hours, crap pay, hot and sweaty work.
Interview for KFCjob tomorrow though, hope I get that job so I can ditch this one, and hopefully the hours won't be 2pm-10pm. I want early hours so I can have afternoon/evening as me time/.
Oh well. Such is life.
On the more positive side had some fun times chatting with the guys at latex101 and got a sneak peek at some of their new stuff, which looks awesome. Maybe one day I can afford it, Christmas present maybe :P
Some of my writing - looking for feedback
Posted Aug 3, 2014
I've recently started up another blog for my writing and I stuck a bit of my book on there. I've posted the whole of this chapter (and the prologue) online before but I've spent some time reworking it. There's only a bit of it up so far as I am still working through it.
Due to me being an idiot, I've ended up doing more work on chapter 1 than the prologue, so the prologue might be a bit worse. What do you mean working through it in a logical order makes sense? :P

There's also a game review on there, if you can stomach more of my battering on a keyboard!
I'm looking for feedback/criticism on it. Does it make sense, are there sentences that don't make sense, which grammar crimes am I committing? What things do I need to work on? etc etc
I expect there's more than a few grammar/spelling errors that I've missed.
Just noting down thoughts for my book
Posted Jul 21, 2014
I have the current version of my book sat on my computer.
I also have a bunch of things I need to change about it: characters mainly ,and their stories.
I also need to do a detailed breakdown of each chapter so that I have a record of what happens where than I can refer to easily. Which will require reading what I have written :/
Then I need to merge in the changes I want to make into that outline to make sure that they all fit in sensible places.
Then I can start re-writing it and honing it all.
Getting that straight in my head took far too long (months). Now I have a plan!
