Yesterday I managed to do a drawing of three soldiers posing. I need at least 7 for the front cover of TEABAG. Today I did some research about Richard III. I don't think I'll use Shakespearean quotes but the character may talk in a Shakespearean way.

Today's joke is:

I was in the Army once and the sergeant said to me ‘What does surrender mean?’ I said ‘I give up!’

Drawing instead

I was too tired yesterday to writ my blog. I also didn't write anything, however I did think about my ideas for the Richard III android and its dual personality. I might get a chance to write today I'll have to see. My grandkids are coming around so I may be drawing instead.

Today I did no writing but I did do a rough drawing of Gunby dressed in a red tunic and Foreign Service Helmet. Then my daughter's electricity went off and it was quite difficult drawing by my phone's torchlight.

Over the weekend I did some LARPing with my grandkids, son and family friends, I enjoyed it. I also made a better sword with a fishing rod and carrimat, I have been wanting to do it for a couple of years now. Wrote about 200 words today of TEABAG chapter two.

Today's joke is:

In ancient Egypt, papyrus farmers taught people the importance of reeding.

Action Man

I didn't do any writing or drawing today. I did keep three pieces of clothing back to make my Action Man a red tunic and Anglo Zulu war type clothing. (For the cover of TEABAG.) My son also said I could borrow one of his action men. Just another 6 or 7 to go!

I have also been trying to fine sewing patterns for them on line but no luck so far. However there is a picture of an Action Man dressed in British colonial uniform of the 1870s!

Today I finished the end of chapter one of TEABAG. However I left my pad out and it got a little wet on one of the pages with a small amount of spilled coffee. Chatted a little to Richard about the idea for a TEABAG type PC platformer with metal men led by an android against the team. We'll see if it comes to anything.

A Short Story

I wrote 200 words today, inked in the female unicorn and drew John Bull(dog). I am thinking of putting TEABAG on my blog over Christmas at 500 words per day. Then a week or two later putting it on Wattpad. So far I have done about a chapter or 2,500 words if it is a short story.

OWIA 3 is free from tomorrow.

Today's joke is:

I used to be a banker but I lost interest!

I wrote about 20 words today, the bit I had thought about on my bicycle two days ago. Also looked at the event cards for my card game and inked in another picture for it.

Today's joke is:

When the drummer moved back in next door there were many repercussions.

A Good Joke

Today I managed to write about 400 words of my story. Also heard a good joke.

I was into snail racing. I was told to take the shell off my snail to make it go faster, but it went a bit sluggish afterwards!

Friday, 10 October 2014


I wrote about 400 words today, used the bit I made up yesterday but didn't know where to put.

Where to put, sounds a bit like a problem a golfer might have!

Thought about his name...

Today's total ia about 400 words as well, making about 1,000 words altogether. I have introduced the shape changer. Thought about his name at my brother-in-law's garage. It seems to be working so far.

Today's joke is:

How do you not cry when peeling an onion? Try not to empathize with it's situation!

(the story)

I wrote about another 400 words of my story today, in Waitrose. Also forgot the joke I put on here yesterday, my son reminded me of it so I could tell Will. If I'm not careful I'll finish it before I know what it (the story) is about!

Today's joke is:

I had an account with a bank in the North Pole, but they froze all my assets!

Wattpad First

Sid And Arthur's Steampunk Adventure Part 6 got to number one again over the weekend in Young Adult, Science Fiction, Steampunk. (When I say again I mean like SAASA 4 and 5.)

I also started a new story today called The East Anglian Bombardiers and Grenadiers. I am not planning it to be any length and may put it on Wattpad first.

Today's joke is:

 The divers had to be careful, the octopus was heavily armed!

The Pilgrimage of Grace

I saw Dr Janina Ramirez today, filming her BBC programme about The Pilgrimage of Grace. I shook her hand and told her about The Groom of the Stool, King Henry the VIII and the little window he had put in the King's Manor so that he could see out into the street as he went to the toilet. :)

I again searched for the piece of my story that's missing, I also started to work on a bit to put in if I can't find it by Friday. Whoops! It's Friday now!!!

Missing Piece

Still can't find the missing piece of my story. Can remember the next line but after that there's about 200 words missing. If I cannot find it I'll have to make something else up. I have found all of the pieces of paper I thought it was and raked off my document shelf but still no luck. Typed in the last 300 words at Waitrose.

Today's joke is:

What do you call an unmarried female moth?

A myth!
