I Love Women

This Is A Thing That Actually Happened

I’ve played World of Warcraft on and off since 2007, and have seen my share of joke NPC names, such as Gordie Lapforge the goblin, Haris Pilton, and Siouxsie the Banshee. By contrast, Lord of the Rings Online has remained consistent in its use of either canon names for NPCs …

The Home Stretch

If you’re on LJ, you can follow me at http://elven-wolf.livejournal.com, but for the moment I am attempting to keep both blogs updated at once. (Thank you, Windows Live Writer!)

Touched by Kiefer

When Kiefer Sutherland and FOX get together, it’s usually not a bad thing. I started watching Touch yesterday and I am completely hooked. This is the anti-24: life is awesome, people are awesome, people in Iraq are awesome, even Russian mobsters are awesome when given the chance to. Warning, the …

What is this sorcery?

I was rating things on goodreads, you know, because I need more books to read. (I really don’t, but I have a problem.) I came across a book by ‘Richard Castle’. I asked myself, ‘Richard Castle? Is Richard the first name of the guy on Castle? I can’t remember…’ I …

Worldbuilding is one of my favourite aspects of writing fiction. I love playing with the what ifs of history, inventing new civilisations and interesting lands. Normally, I spend months putting everything together even as I write, but with my current work in progress I now realise I cheated. I didn’t …
