Some refinements to process

With NanoWriMo done and dusted for 2015, it's a good time to refine some of my writing processes. I've been in a state of flux recently. On the desktop I'm torn between Mac and Linux while on mobile I use both Android (my phone) and iOS (my tablet). I've been …

I've decided to do NanoWriMo again this year, it will be my fifth time since 2008. This year I'm bending the rules and am using this month as a chance to write all the new scenes in my redraft of Weaver of Dreams.

It's a week into NaNoWriMo and I've written just over 30 thousand words. That's insane; I don't think I've written at that sort of rate since I was a teenager. It's taught me two things: firstly, despite being anal about formal planning I am more productive when I don't and …

I've decided to have another crack at Nanowrimo this year. I stated my intention to do so last year, but seeing as my youngest son was born just two weeks before it was overly ambitious and I don't think I actually wrote a single word towards my story.

I've had to delay my post about creating characters until next week due to work commitments. In the meantime, I thought I'd briefly post on my decision to migrate to Linux on my MacBook Air, which is my daily driver outside of my home office.

My history with *nix

Fixed the search function

Posted on Thu 20 March 2014 in News • Tagged with news, development, javascript • 1 min read

I got around to fixing the broken search engine today. Turned out to be simpler than I thought but since JavaScript isn't my forte it took much longer than it should have.

Turns out that the content of the search box wasn't being passed properly to the JavaScript function that …
