Just a quick post to say I’ve written a new post on my blog For The Hole Inside Everyone called Moving From A Monoglot To A Polyglot Culture. This has been playing on my mind for sometime since the last time someone asked me why I’m shy and I don’t speak more Danish round our office in Copenhagen and this is the result of that thought a few weeks after the fact.
Also whilst I’m here I thought I’d say how it went at the Helium Competition at their Pulitzer Center. I was 3/12 at one point then my ranking dived bombed more badly than any of my other Helium articles, so I guess it shows you you should write what you know no matter how well you do your research! I was just hoping to win an iPad otherwise I wouldn’t have entered on that topic.
I also just brought my .com domain for my 6 book Science Fiction Series which is exciting (8 letters all one word, which is pretty good for a .com url these days). There probably won’t be much up there until I’m ready to launch the first book but it’s good to know I have it in reserve for when I’m ready; makes the project all that more real.
Anyways, that’s all folks for now!
As a writer at Helium I was sent a newsletter telling me about a current competition in their Pulitzer Center which can see the winning magazine articles published along with a prize of an iPad, something I really want as I want to play with Garage Band so I can start creating music for you all again (as I’m limited in what I can do on the guitar nowadays due to my medical condition).
I have entered the competition under the article title ‘What are the best ways to engage young people in family planning?‘. I have to get into the top 4 to be considered for the winning spot. I’ll let you know when it goes once the winners are picked 🙂
It’s been a busy writing weekend! Not only did I release my first Science Fiction Short Story eBook The Cancer but also I’ve written a review at Helium for a new Movie I saw this weekend called Planet 51. I loved it so much I had to immediately write about it, on top of my other writing plans.
If your thinking about going to see the Film Planet 51 check out this Helium Review (spoilers marked)

Just a quick post to say I recently finished watching Battlestar Galactica Series 4 and I’ve done a review of my impressions. As you may notice I really enjoyed the story and I cried tons on the final episode. I couldn’t stop thinking about it so I decided to sit down and write a review, my first post on Helium for a while. Since I posted it this lunchtime its jumped from 9th of 32 articles to 3rd of 32.

Well I’m off to enjoy the rest of this insanely good weather over here in Denmark and to write some more on a new For The Hole Inside Everyone blog post and my latest short story, which I’ll post about once I’m done.
Enjoy the weekend 🙂
