DisguiseDidja miss me?

I was gone for a while, but I came home because Will Write For Cake is a great place to be.

For those wondering, let me explain. A few years ago I had the great idea of creating a single website that I could use as a central hub for all the different things I do. That way I wouldn’t need to maintain several blogs at once. So I created MrUku.com and put all my eggs one basket.

I believe it’s been pretty well documented that I bloody love a nice bit of stationery. Who doesn’t?I have many pens, lots of pencils, a variety of inks and a vastness of notebooks. And I know I’m not the only one, especially when it comes to notebooks. I love a nice softback Moleskine, me. I […]

I’ve said it before…

I was trawling around the webs recently and I came across another list of tips from published, and occasionally well known, authors. You know the ones; two dozen writers saying the same thing over and over. Truth be told, we all know these rules, we just like to have them confirmed to us by people […]

The joy of rewrites

It seems like an age since I took part in NaNoWriMo back in November 2010. I finished my book, Monkeygeddon, and put it to one side. You know, like they tell you to. I’d planned on leaving it to one side for a month and the rewrites would begin in January. Then lot of stuff […]
