Too Many Ideas - Archive for April, 2006

So many Ideas forgot too Blog on Sunday

Monday, April 10th, 2006

Well its technically 14 minutes into Monday here. I’ve been having so much fun I forgot I hadn’t posted here yet. Another relativelly early start and again a good result. Got 2500 more words written on the new story getting the character to just before the lowest point of her ride. Trapped alone and about […]

That Saturday Post

Saturday, April 8th, 2006

Well it’s Saturday again so the usual drudge done. But by some strange chance I actually got up a bit earlier today. Like I used to be able to regularly. Thus I have had time to knock together another part of my new web site AND actually type a few more words of my new […]

Liverpool Indirect

Saturday, April 8th, 2006

My experience of using Liverpool Direct has been OK. Once very quick off the mark. Once half did the job and I can understand that they had their hands tied dealing with the problem. Once no response to an urgent query that I fortunately figured out the answer to by my own devices. Their Logo […]

Meandering Thoughts for Friday

Friday, April 7th, 2006

So I spent the evening (minus one hour for the light relief that is Hustle) hacking a gallery of a few of my pictures together. Sometimes getting this web site together feels like one of the modern trials of Hercules. And as many people will surely tell you I am not a modern Hercules 🙂 […]

Árǽdan Discovery

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

I was looking over Árǽdan last night, getting back to editing it, when I realised that one of the minor characters towards the end of the story has an unexplained mystical skill. I’m leaving it unexplained in Árǽdan itself but it kicked off an idea for another story in the same world that tells the […]

Serious and Organised: Logo

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

I had been going to blog about the need for a cool modern (what a few years ago would have been a Cool Britannia) logo for the show. SOCA beat me to the logo and the BBC beat me to the analysis. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/4876818.stm "It’s not our policy to comment on the logo or the agency […]

Serious and Organised: the Set Up

Tuesday, April 4th, 2006

So what does our hypothetical show need to make it a hit. First a pair of tough crime fighters. But this isn’t the masogonistic 70s so one will be a woman. She’ll be hard as nails, dug from the same quarry as Buffy, ex special forces. For a bit of a role reversal he’ll be […]

Coming Soon to ITV 1: Serious and Organised

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

It may just be me but behind all the serious talk today about the launch of SOCA there was a faint hint of a wink and a smirk. As though a few civil servants who like 70 and 80s cop shows had come up with it after a heavy night of drinking… “Ya know what […]

Content Hacking

Sunday, April 2nd, 2006

I’ve spent the day hacking content into shape for my new web site. Hopefully I’ll be brave enough to ask a few friends to look at it soon and see what they think.

Friday Night

Saturday, April 1st, 2006

I was supposed to be meeting some friends and colleagues at the Philharmonic pub in Liverpool on Friday night for a leaving do. Except no one had noticed that Condoleezza Rice was going to the Philharmonic Hall across the road. So we adjourned to a pub further down the hill. This isn’t going to turn […]
