Hi all

Thought some of you might be interested in my new website featuring some of my short stories I have written (two of which I have won small writing competitions with). It's called The Perambulator (named so for my first novel which is currently in first draft/editing stage) and is hosted on a free thing so the current URL is a bit long winded. Maybe one day I shall be less stingy and pay for an actual URL for it but as it stands:

The Perambulator

Now onto other things: Anyone fancy being an early reader for my novel? I have sent the PDF to a few people but they are being slow with feedback. I know I need to do some editing on it but don't really have a focus for it. I want to get it sent to agents soon but I am not sure I have a draft I can do that with. Anyone had any experience with this?

Secondly, today I started writing what might become my second full length novel! I think I like the creating side a lot more than the editing/publishing side haha! Does anyone have any experience in Worldbuilding from a sense of getting maps done and suchlike? I tried to do a map for this world in order to have a visual aid when writing but it was utterly awful! May have to just continue with it being stuck in my head. My previous novel didn't need one cos it was set in out world, so the maps already, um, exist...

Any feedback for my website (I am not a programmer/coder/what have you) or my writing is welcome!

Today, I start the long and tedious process of editing my novel. Any hints welcome. But no distractions with funny pics and videos/discussions about bacon or porn. Nope, none of that please!

Any reference to black semen should be replaced with beer.

Dragons are not, under any circumstances, vegetarians.

Blasters, phasers, lasers, are all very neat, but sometimes 'gun' is ok too.

Exposition is bad. No, i won't explain why.

If your werewolf or vampire character is angsty, stop. Just stop.

"She gasped in shock as he ejaculated all over her heaving chest, his beer sticky and grotesque"

Yup that works.
