Rainbow Snippets–Tokyo Nights

This I published Episode Ten, the last installment of Tokyo Nights: Season One. Feels good to have finished the season and I’m pretty up with how it went, though for Season Two I will write it all in advance first. That way, there won’t be the huge pressure to write/edit/publish within a short space of... Continue Reading →

Tokyo Nights: An Adventure in Serial Writing

Writing Tokyo Nights: Season One was always going to be challenge. Pushing myself to write, edit, publish and promote a story via instalments every two weeks, especially when each instalment – episode – averaged about nine thousand words. Releasing a story by instalments in of itself wasn’t new to me, I’d written plenty of fanfiction... Continue Reading →

Rainbow Snippets–Tokyo Nights

Thankfully the main part of the assignment had been done and I just needed to work on the three-hundred word introduction which had to be formatted like an essay and include:... Continue Reading →

Clash of Cultures–Tattoos

When cultural clashes occur between characters it isn’t always over big political/moral beliefs but can occur over small things that for one character might seem insignificant. For Jamie and Gou one area where the difference in their cultural beliefs stands out is over tattoos. For Jamie they are art, personal connections with the past or... Continue Reading →

Rainbow Snippets–Tokyo Nights

Missed last weeks Rainbow Snippets as I was busy with Gymnastics and attending the local writers festival on top of getting my own work done, like publishing Tokyo Nights Episode Seven. I have finished the last of the drafts for Season One, just need to work through them for edits and have already thought about how... Continue Reading →
