Douglas Adams’ Legacy

Douglas Noel Adams is my favorite author. His brand of comedy has inspired and delighted me ever since I discovered The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in my early teens. His works have touched many more, but not many enough! So if you are unaware of any of the things I'm about to tell you... Continue Reading →

My January In Blogging

This month I have let my writing suffer, as a result of trying to market my blog.   I don't think any of the blog-posts I made this month holds a candle to my best articles. I have put blog-posts on StumbleUpon and Scoop.It, I've joined a few blog-groups on Facebook, I've made a Pinterest... Continue Reading →

Writing Inspiration #5 – Other Writers

Even the glacier-hike I mentioned here before set my mind ablaze... Continue Reading →

Writing Inspiration #1 – Art

This week (and some of next) I want to make a short blog-series about the various things that inspire me when I write. Since I've already gone into great detail about how the art of Theodor Kittelsen have inspired me, I figured this was a good place to start.   Visual stimuli are great to get... Continue Reading →
