Eleven Years Ago Today…

I blogged for the very first time. It’s still rather strange to think of old Space Craft is. Scifiville is even older, I bought the domain back in June 2000.   So I’ve made some new aquistions   I picked this up in my local Aldi for about £2.50 I think.   It contains this [...]

The End of the One Year Blogging Challenge plus 11 years of SpaceCraft…

So, this time last year I pledged to blog every Monday for a year. Why? Well, because my blogging had pretty much dried up. The last few years had come and gone with only a few posts to show for them. So to herald the eleventh year of this blog – yes, that’s right eleven [...]

New Blog – Nanowrimo, procrastination and James Bond.

It sounds like a strange 1960s team-up show, I know. But the madness of National Novel Writing Month is almost upon me. I have only two days of sanity and freedom left before November first. Back in February I pledged to blog every Monday for a year. Some of my entries have been a bit [...]

Finished – Edinburgh Rock

I’m really pleased with how this turned out     I’ve never blocked a scarf before but I’m tempted to block this one so that the yarn over design shows up     Unfortunately I don’t have anything new to show you this week. I’ve had to stop and start a few projects including, Wild [...]

Making Monday – First post of the Year

This blog, Space Craft, is ten years old this month and as part of celebrating and marking that, I’ve decided to set myself a little blogging challenge. From this week onwards I will blog every Monday for a year. It’s a challenge and a bit of a kick up the backside for me. I can [...]

Finished!

I’m going for a lie down now… I’m going for a lie down now…

NaNoWriMo

The word count widgets are now ready so you can see how I’ve been doing. Most days it’s just been get home, make tea and then head down writing for two hours. Some days are easier than others but I’m over the halfway point now. Just have to keep going! The word count widgets are [...]

Post Card from the Edge…

This is where I am at the moment, in the midst of the madness that is National Novel Writing Month. The word widgets aren’t ready yet so I can’t put up a count of my words just yet but yesterday I got up to the 11k word mark. Today the words just aren’t coming so [...]

Elizabeth Gilbert on Creativity…

I saw the film that was based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s book “Eat, Pray, Love” last week and I didn’t like it at all. I had approached it as mindless fluff which helped while viewing it but after seeing it I immediately thought of Mark Kermode’s short review – “Eat, Pray, Love. Vomit“. But of course [...]

Nano No No

I really wanted to take part in NaNoWriMo this year. For those who’ve never heard of it, it stands for National Novel Writing Month and involves writing 50k of fiction in a month.It’s not quite a novel, more a novella size. Now, I’ve written fiction for years and always have lots of ideas for stories [...]
