Tag Archive: Competition


Well, it’s a new record, I made 2 posts, then decided to bugger off again for a week.

Nonononononononoooo, it’s not you, it’s me. Okay, it might be you, but it’s at least, 40% me. At least a fifth.

Sadly, I’ll be out of town for a week, but hopefully I’ll get a chance to upload something, even if it’s merely another old ‘That’s Horror-ble’

Oh, haven’t seen yet? My latest upload was from an old tumblr series I wrote on horror tropes, from zombies to found footage. It’s was pretty good, and I thought I would bring the series, cleaned up and re-written, to here, along with some new ones. Hopefully you guys’ll like it and not castrate me, and call me names, and all that jazz. The first one is about how horror had changed nowadays. Sadly, it hasn’t gone well, but maybe I can’t make things a little funnier as it spirals down the toilet.

Guess you could say I…

took the piss…

Lastly, do you like fame? Do you feel triumphant from crushing other contestants under you heel? Are you, like Charlie Sheen, fond of the concept of ‘winning’? Then do I have the competitions for you!

Several blogger friends of mine have decided to host several contests, and YOU CAN ENTER THEM ALL.

the contests and prizes are various, but I would strongly recommend you enter them, not just for your own personal glory, not just to promote healthy competition and make friends, but to batter each other down so that I can sweep in and claim glory for myself.

And I’m sure you’ll do a fine job too 😉

Day 19, Sunday:Five of your favorite blogs and what you love about them

I like too many blogs. faaaaaar too many blogs. Here are just 5 of my favourites:

1): Unlucky for Some

Catherine-Ann has been mentioned here before, and I don’t mind mentioning her again. she’s a supremely talented writer, and is currently hosting an art competition on her blog. Please go and support her.

2): Everything and Anything to Love

Another person mentioned here quite a bit, Brook, like me, is attempting the Blog Every Day in May challenge. A personal friend to me in real life, she’s also hosting a competition to celebrate 1000 views. Feel free to enter and, I dunno, send the prize to me…

3): Derek Landy Blogs Under Duress

Derek Landy is an Irish writer famous for writing the Skulduggery Pleasant series (my favourite series of books ever :)). When he’s not writings about living skeletons and faceless gods, he keeps a blog detailing his writing experiences and his love of Women’s MMA.

4): Aaron Dembski-Bowden

Aaron is another writer, one writing for the science fiction world of Warhammer 40,000, Aaron is responsible for writing one of my all time favourite books, The First Heretic. He talks a lot on his progress writing for Warhammer, as well as his time off and convention appearances.

5): Lasesana

Responsible for a version of The Snowflake Method, a method of writing that has helped me so much in my work, Lasesana has a full 5 minute Spanish course up on her blog, which I’m happy to say I will never be stupid enough to not figure out.  It’s thorough, it’s easy, and it’s very, very good.
