Manic Monday and Madness on Planet Simon

This to me sums up Sunday…

IMG_20150316_060956

Unfortunately alcohol does not ease the pain – it makes it worse when the day finally comes! There is a whole week ahead of us of challenges and things that can go right or wrong.

Let’s hope more right than wrong eh?

Last week I didn’t get my whole list done – but then the little thing called work got in the way so you know swings and roundabouts. I got some Halloween writing done and the next part of the Great Galactic Service Station:

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 1

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 2

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 3

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 4

I’ve still got a fair bit going on but if I can get some of these things out of the way I’m hoping to have more great stuff to share with you and more exciting Planet Simon developments.

What are you guys up to this week?

Also make sure you follow up what’s going on in the rest of the Planet Simon universe:

Planet Simon’s Manic Monday

Her we are again folks… another Manic Monday with a whole load of fun and challenges ahead. What challenges are lying ahead for you?

For me I’ve got something like:

  • Write a shed load for my story – I mean how hard can it be?
  • Complete the cover for one of my stories (surprise here to keep you guessing).
  • Blog some.
  • Catch up on posts.
  • Do a little thing called work

Not much to do then eh? Let’s see how far I get! I’ve also got the next part of The Great Galactic Service Station to compete – A few of you have been having a chuckle over it, if you’re into a bit of humerous scifi go have have a look:

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 1

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 2

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 3

Apart from that it’s all much the same. I hope you all have a good week and see you all out there! If you’re interested here’s more places to find me:

Manic Monday Musings

Here we are again at another Monday, another 5 working days of fun and challenges (yeah… that’s the nice way of putting it). There’s much to look forward to here on Planet Simon, with more thoughts from the Minions, for the depth of my mind where things have been grating on me and another part of the Great Galactic Service Station.

Among this I’m also working on my next art pieces and more writing is going on behind these scenes for other stories, including continuing a spooky story I started last year.

I’ve also notice one or two people having a look at my Dark Horizons on Wattpad which is always good, if you’re on Wattpad come and have a look and I can see what you’ve been writing too!

Have a great week, let me know what you’re up to as well – come and say hi here or:

Monday’s Maniacal… Something

Happy shiny Monday to you all fellow bloggies! Another week of fun, joy and a shit load of as yet unknown challenges await us and I hope you all get through it all in one piece!

So what’s been going on?

In answer to that – a bit. Maybe a little bit, maybe a lotta bit it depends who you are. So firstly I have been writing a bit! Yay for me, I’ve been working on my story and making a little headway which makes me feel good I have to say. I’ve also started wiring a new series on here called The Great Galactic Service Station. Part one was published on Friday – have a look if you haven’t already.

I’ve also been putting more of my work onto Wattpad and hopefully widening out the audience: Planet Simon on Wattpad

I’m hoping that more artwork is going to be on it’s way soon as well! Exciting times here on Planet Simon so I hope you guys can hang around and join in the fun. I was also thinking about posting a digital art masterclass based on open source (free) software available on the interweb. What do ya think? Something of interest?

Anyways, have a great week – come and say hi here or:

Another Manic Monday on Planet Simon

So here we are at the start of another week – another few days of challenges and to make a difference in the world. Or of course we could all get buried in work. So what’s been going on? Work basically, just when I thought I had time a second wave comes in to knock me for six.

But despite this I actually go somewhere. On Friday I posted the first of my artwork that I’m going to start using in my stories and on the blog.

There’s going to be more of this coming as soon as there is something to post and I’m excited to be introducing this. For me this is helping me bring stories and the people within them to life more in my mind.

I’m going to start writing a few more posts on what I’ve been reading recently. There’s been a bit of a mix and some of it has already been put into posts. Keep watching bookish people, there’s going to be something for you.

Anyways, I feel like I’ve been ignoring you guys too much – I would love to re-connect with my old bloggie pals and connect with new ones. What will you all be up to this week?

I’m going to to share some regular musings and from life as we know it, because you know – some things just have to be said! Also make sure you keep up in my other places on the interweb:

Manic Monday on Planet Simon

OMG!!!! Just when I thought it couldn’t get worse it did. What a week – but I have a load of stuff cleared out of the way and maybe quieter times are ahead. Despite all of this I managed to squeeze some words out later in the week but it really finished me off!

 

On top of this I’ve been working on some sketching. I some may scoff or tut at this but If I’m going to write stores and hopefully books and I’m skint (which I am) then paying someone to make pretty book covers sin’t going to be easy. So I’ve been working on some sketching and I’m going to start introducing some of these this week.

If you don’t already know (if no why not?) @BloggersBash is now running the weekly #BloggersBashChat. It’s a fun and interesting way to connect with other bloggers and we’re even pulling some bloggers from their Bloggers site to WordPress on the back of this. Have a look and make sure you’re ready to chat between 7pm and 8pm UK time to take part.

Manic Monday Landing on Planet Simon

So here we are again – another Monday morning and a whole load of challenges ahead. As it seems this year in the UK Autumn started the minute September came, this makes getting the house and garden ready for winter all that more problematic as I try and avoid the deluges. This coupled with finishing off the shower room has given more more than I need to keep me out of trouble and away from my writing – this is frustrating! But saying this Autumn is my favorite time of year!

With the weather closing in though the hope that writing time will come the crappy weather isn’t unreasonable. I know Sacha is holding me to my target and I’m very aware of this!

Speaking of Sacha, if you guys don’t know the @BloggersBash is now running the weekly #BloggersBashChat. It’s a fun and interesting way to connect with other bloggers and we’re even pulling some bloggers from their Bloggers site to WordPress on the back of this. Have a look and make sure you’re ready to chat between 7pm and 8pm UK time to take part.

I’m still trying to get my promised projects into posts for you, this is I’m sorry to say more drawn out than a speech in Florence. Thanks for being great bloggies though.

Along with this are some of the regular musings and sharing from life as we know it. Also make sure you keep up in my other places on the interweb:

Just another Manic Monday

Those bloggies that follow me more than others will have realised that I missed out last weeks manic Monday post. Ooops, my bad – but there’s never a dull moment around here.

Well you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve been working my ass off, getting ten thousand words written in my book and things are running along nicely. NOT! I wish I could write that in seriously but unfortunately with a shower room to finish off my stories have progress at a non-existent pace. BUT – this is going to change. With this piece of work done and with a few strategies in my head I’m going to get things moving forward and hopefully be able to update you with new and exciting stuff. Fingers crossed I can make this happen eh?

Along with everything there’s an end to an era coming when the Cassini spacecraft completes it’s grand finale on Friday and I’m hoping to have a corker of a post on this. This is to add to the post I cranked out (probably far too quickly) on Voyager’s 1&2 40th anniversary.

Along with this are some of the regular musings and sharing from life as we know it. Also make sure you keep up in my other places on the interweb:

Planet Simon’s Return to Manic Monday

I know – it’s been a couple of weeks. I know that maybe a few of you might have noticed this. I know… sorry I came back lol! ;-P

Ok, so I said that I needed to start writing, so I have. Don’t get me wrong this isn’t any kind of rocket speed but I am starting to get words into a story. Or rather stories. I’m not going to pretend I’m focused or have a great schedule but you know it’s a start. So I’ve spent some time away to have a think – about how to blog and write and create worlds – because I’ve been doing that too and this is all to come in future posts.

So what am I up to? Well I’ve got my first proper book in progress at about 5 k words currently down and many, many more to follow. I am so undecided on a title for this story which is a pain because I more or less know in my head how it’s going to pan out. I think it’s great!

Then there’s my second project – rewriting the Titan Mystery now called the Titan Destiny as I think it sounds less corny.

Apart from that there’s more of the usual tosh and some new things – after thinking about it I have been reading a lot of books recently, more often than not children’s books. So I’m going to write a few posts on these and add it to the library of books I’ve written about. Also the eagle eyes among you will have noticed a slightly different look to the Planet Simon site and the headers, it’s good to change it up sometimes.

So… keep watching.

Planet Simon’s Manic Monday

My brain will explode soon, I’ve had a few days off and I’m ready to go back to work. You would think with some time off that reading and writing but alas no. It’s been grass cutting and fixing things and stuff like that so I’m climbing the walls a bit as writing is something that’s passing me by – so my goal for this week is do do some as I have a book to write before next year is up or Sacha Black is going to be ridiculing me next year

So without further ado – I better go!
