I Am Writing Fiction Again

Long time ago I used to write fiction on Fridays and ended up writing a heck of a lot of stuff (most set in EVE universe) which you can find in the Fiction tab. I won a couple EVE short story contests and always felt I had the potential to actually write a novel (or series of novels) if I just put my mind to it and found the time.

Life is funny. As the kids get older (twins are now 10 and little surprise is 8) and the can occupy themselves more often and their bedtime moved from 8 to 8:30, I am finding myself with some free time in the evening that was not there before.

Shocked, I'm sure.

So I've decided to try and write about an idea that has been rolling around in my brain for the better part of 5 years.

God, its hard. Writing a short story in the EVE universe is liberating because you have do not have to build a world and you can to cut right to the point. But writing a story that is going to require you to build a world in the process and decide how that world works and what living in it would be like is daunting.

But I'm not getting any younger, and now is the time to try.

Wish me luck.


  1. Most people do not wish to be writers, they want to be authors.
    Good luck building your universe.

  2. I look forward to it! Your fiction Friday was one of the blogs I looked forward to each week. Speaking of which, I’m off to the fiction tab for a review!
