Teppanyaki Superman

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

I’ve tried Sushi Restaurants and Noodle restaurants in the past. I’d never had Teppanyaki before. Went to the Teppanyaki Sapporo on Duke Street (Liverpool) after Superman last night. A bit pricey but the show put on by the chefs as they cooked our food in front of us was really good. If you want to […]

Accidental Discovery while Writing

Monday, May 8th, 2006

So I was busy writing my Noir earlier or trying to write it anyway. Its all told in the first person (well it is a noir) and so I’ve not described the hero at all. I know he’s pretty much an everyman, an ex-soldier, quite cold, from Liverpool and an outsider but other than that […]

The prospectus mentioned world building. It mentioned Fantasy and Science Fiction. What it didn’t mention was that that all the […]
