My goal is to test myself as a writer- to place myself outside of my comfort zone and to challenge myself.

Literary influences: David Weber, John G. Hemry, Peter F Hamilton, John Scalzi, Roald Dahl

I highly recommend the Old Man's War Saga from John Scalzi and John G. Hemry's Lost Fleet Saga if you like clever science fiction!

What else am I into? Formula 1, Liverpool football club, and a lot of sci-fi. I am a geek and proud of it! Star Trek, Star Wars, and all the rest- I love 'em.

There is more to me than that though. I thoroughly enjoy Criminal Minds, Spartacus and 24.

Oh, by the way, I have my own website now: www.meerkatmusings.co.uk

    So I check in for the first time in ages and see that there is quite a bit of spam circulating - stuff about medical drugs for sale?! I hope this stuff gets zapped and pretty quickly!

    Ambassadors have noticed it and we're reporting as much as we can.

    Well, the Terra Core has been re-added so I can enter it into the sci-fi competition...
    The Terra CoreA young man is forced from his home to the stars after a terrible crime (inspired by a dream I had!)

    And there are new chapters of Techno Fail up...
    So I guess I've been a little busy?

    This should be right up my street. Sci-fi is my thing. I love it. Yet right now, I am completely blank.

    So I'm still around, even if I haven't posted for a while. I need to update Techno Fail (added new chapters on my site just not here), and I need to keep forcing myself to write. Ideally, I need a co-author, someone I can bounce ideas off.

    In the meantime, I've stuck a forum on my personal site - am hoping to try and drive a few interesting discussions there. http://meerkatmusings.co.uk/forums/forum..

    mumbled "Editing..."

    Why did no one warn me about this bit? I don't like this bit. Ok, so it's the first real time I've sat down in earnest to do it, but still... I've been going back over my latest addition to Movellas, fleshing out details, altering chapters here and there, and trimming the fat. Hopefully the revised story is stronger than it was before, and will have a clearer direction going forward.
