So, how best to describe myself… I’m a rather mad Philosophy PhD student with a Pumpkin for a head. I’ve always had an interest in writing creatively and decided it was about time I indulged it; hence, this blog was born, to be filled with as much fiction as I can possibly churn out without failing my postgraduate degree. Most of what I write here will be utterly mad, but I’ll try to sneak in something meaningful every now and then.
I decided this year to undertake some sort of creative project and so set about trying to write one mini-saga for every day of the year. This later evolved into writing one illustrated mini-saga for every day of the year, usually followed by a little rant by me (I like making more work for myself).
UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to the constraints of being a final year PhD student I’ve had to indefinitely put my mini-saga project on hold. I wasn’t managing to juggle writing chapters with writing mini-sagas at all well and something had to give, just couldn’t be my PhD. You can take a look at the first half of this project though by looking back through my archives (there’s still about 150 sagas to look through). I’ll still be updating every Sunday with a comic and will hopefully be working towards some more regular updates during the week; I think for the sake of my work and my sanity though, I’ll have to steer clear of daily updates for a while.
So please feel free to tune in on a regular basis and I hope to read your thoughts in the comments boxes!
