This is a place where I write experimental stories; often trying to improve upon my writing and creativity and try to garner feedback (it also keeps me busy). The stories on here are first drafts only and written as I post, so will have problems that I can't easily fix and will be nowhere near to published quality. These drafts are simply ideas rather than anything concrete, there's little concern for word counts, and do absolute bare minimum world building.

Updates always depend on my health! I try my best to update on a weekly basis but it is sometimes difficult as I have disabling chronic illnesses (M.E, among other issues). If I don't update, it's normally because my health has dropped. In winter I tend to write fortnightly with chapters written in advance, but even then it can be difficult/impossible to update.

I never leave a story incomplete, so don't fear any of my works being left abandoned.
I sketch a lot of my own covers.

Going forward, expect Monday updates as well as Thursday starting next week. This should mean Hellfire will be completed before Christmas!
