Part two: the story; King Arthur Legend of the Sword

If you don’t know much about the Arthurian Legend, or have not encountered it before, the usual Arthurian story (where Arthur is the protagonist) has Arthur growing up an orphan and not knowing he’s the rightful king. Through some means (depending on which version you’re reading, there are a lot) Arthur gains Excalibur (pulling it from a stone is a contemporary addition to the legend), a symbol of his birthright, and has to fight whomever is king, overthrow them and…

So, I’ve been absent…oops?

I’ve been quite a bit absent from here for quite a while. It wasn’t intended, really. I meant to post, I was just neck deep in Ph.D and then in Ph.D recovery once it was done. Which really has involved sleeping, a lot, knitting and reading. And more sleeping.   I’m finally back to writing up some of the knitting patterns I’ve been collecting. See, while I’ve been busy with my Ph.D I have still been designing, I just haven’t…

A year on

It’s been a year, well over a year, since I last blogged. I didn’t forget about my blog, rather I was in my final Ph.D year and it was more a matter of needing to keep going with it and get it done. My Ph.D has been handed in for examination, and there is now nothing I can do until it’s been examined and I hear back, which won’t be for several months yet. In the meantime I’ve been recovering…

Photos, Editing, editing and more editing. Ugh. Also knitting

Do you like the new photo of leaves at the top of the front page? I do. I took it a few weeks ago of a lipstick maple with a macro lens. I don’t do this often enough and I love how it came out. All I did to the image was to crop it. No filter, no tampering of any sort. My favourite kind of photography. I’m back into uni work/editing mode and I’m editing two different books at…

Knitting Stats 2013

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but got sidetracked with knitting, reading and doing nothing while I have had the chance. But that’s over and I have to get back to PhD work, even though I’d really love to take another week off. I can’t. My PhD is due this year and that means getting back into editing, so I’m catching up with stuff. Including this blog, which I’ve sadly neglected over the last year while I’ve…

PhD WIP

Want to see the book I’m working on? While it may not be what you expected, that is my book, or at least, how it started out. This is a film/scriptwriting habit I picked up at uni. Each card is a scene/location and it has the plot points of what needs to happen in that scene. The scraps of paper on top are the major plot points of the story. This stayed up for quite a while and I only…
