Happy Angry-versary!

An apt title, if somewhat technically incorrect – as anniversary refers to a yearly milestone – but I’m going to allow myself some poetic licence here. For it’s been three full months since I took the decision to leave my previous long-term employment and try to find something more fulfilling, where I didn’t feel I […]

The Lost Horcrux

Continuing on with my expose of my fanfiction projects this, is one of my recently completed, and most popular, stories to date. So this one came about from a pretty dark idea I had while writing another story. What if, instead of returning during the Battle of Hogwarts as happened in Deathly Hallows, Harry faked […]

Going Spiritual

It came to my attention the other day that whilst I’ve dealt with my hobbies of writing and brewing on this blog – as well as venting about my dire employment situation – the one area I’ve not really covered is my pseudo-religious beliefs, even though I’ve mentioned it in the title. Now, let me […]

Life, updating

So I have started writing this blog nearly three months ago now. It was then that I made a choice, inspired by a negative work situation to leave my life as I knew it and see if I could start afresh. The three month conclusion? It was a bad decision. And the job front is […]

Feeling Aggrieved

And angry, shocked, and generally fucked off might also fit here. Yep, you guessed it, my previous employer threw out my grievance claim, stuck together like some fucking clique and hung me out with the linen. So I’m not a happy bunny. In order to purge my soul of this nonsense, I’m going to lay […]

Great Reviews!

So, one of my WIP stories was updated and the reviews for it have been pretty outstanding, as has been in keeping with the response to the story so far. The lady who posted this particular review is one of my biggest supporters and always says the most gushing things. And this is why fan […]

New Beer

So in the absence of any brewing going on just now, I’ve gone back into craft ales. I picked up these new new beers from the supermarket the other day and they were both great brews. Both are from the Eagle Brewery and the sticky toffee one was a malty ale with a strong caramel […]

New Collection!

So I’ve started working on a new collection of Harry Potter fan fic short stories. I’m borrowing some inspiration from some of fluffy stories I used to enjoy as a child and trying out writing in a style more suitable for a younger audience. My current longer fics are very adult themed and unsuitable for […]
