Does your McDonalds order ever change?

Honestly no, it's either a big Mac and shake or occasionally I go with a McFlurry

eBook or physical book?

Depends. Ebook is what I mostly read but a book, well thats a different thing...

Just been going over Colonisation again, and your review sprung to mind. You said the first 2-3 chapters bored you nearly to abandoning it; what three (or so) things would you suggest changing? Or what do you feel needs the most attention there? Cheers! :-) Hope you don't mind the brain picking :-P

This is a very old question and I have not reread recently but, it was mainly character interactions.
I found the teenage crush with the secretary to be pointless though it later turned out to be the sister of a "villain" I feel it might have been better to introduce him Leo as a direct character perhaps in the sense of a fellow pupil also going for membership in the academy.
I fear without rereading and giving a blow by blow analysis I will struggle to really answer this question
I think to sum it up; it was slow and didn't really add to the later story which was far better...

What would you say are your three favourite non-gaming hobbies and why?

Watching TV - I love my tv shows
Reading - because I like to be transported to another world
Writing - because I can say that now

What got you into writing, and what's stopped you from finishing any shorts for about 10 years?

Hmm I originally started writing song lyrics when I was a young teen mostly emulating my favourite bands at the time, I then went on to write quite a bit of poetry. I left school at this point and having nothing better to do I read a hell of a lot of books which made me want to write something bigger, I was around 16 at the time.
I finished 4 or 5 shorts and was a quarter way through my first novel by the time I was nearly 18 and started working (my mum insisted that I couldn't lounge around at home all day anymore)
Why have I not finished anything since then? Mostly laziness, I have certainly started about 10 pieces but also because I drink too much and I can't write when I drink.
