April: National Humour Month Book Tag

I maybe slightly bored… so I decided to make a new series of book tags!


And given this is the national monthly holiday of humour I thought I would start on a Comedy Book Tag.

April Humour Month


‘A burglar broke into my house last night, searching for money. So I woke up and searched with him.’

Funniest Book



I don’t really read comedy, (may make this tag a little redundant, but I don’t really read either so…) but this is comedy book so…default!



‘What do you call a blonde with half a brain?

Someone who needs a terrible amount a medical attention.’

Most humourless book

Song of the Stork

Song of the Stork

Not that being a book without jokes is a bad thing but Jesus Christ, could you at least attempt to lighten up WW2?


‘Why did the chicken cross the road?’

A Book you’ll Always Remember

Harry Potter.jpg

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Is there ever a book tag that does not have Harry Potter on the list somewhere?


‘Puns about books? I’m drawing a blank!’

The Most Cringest Book

The Unity Game_Cover

Unity Game

This wasn’t for it’s humour but more for it trying to be cleverer than it was. But hey, still counts!

Knock Knock jokes

Best Series of Jokes (Books)

Winner's crime

The Winner’s Trilogy

While definitely a good series, the reason I choose it was mostly because I couldn’t choose Harry Potter again


Black HumourBest Dark Humour in a Book


Your House Is on Fire, Your Children All Gone

This book is hilarious, terrifying, but hilarious.


Oh and as a small titbit, this first week of April is also Library Week, so go visit your local library before it inevitably closes down!

…It’s me.

I’m back…

How have we all been?

Hello Gif.gif

So, I have spent the last three months with no social media nor contact with the outside world to try and finish the third draft of my novel and yes it has been as awful as it sounds, but I’ve learnt a couple of things.

Before we get into that, I’d like to run over again why I decided to become a hermit. As of 21st of March 2018, I have been writing the same book for two years (it still doesn’t have a name though). I decided for my New Year’s resolution to do something about the fact I’m not even close to finishing, by only writing from the 1st January 2018 up until the anniversary, meaning no social media, no blogging, no TV nor films. Only writing…

And here’s what I thought of my induced torture.


There is always another distraction

The thinking behind my enforced hermit behaviour was the idea that no social media or blogging would mean no distraction and boy was I wrong. There is washing to be done, exams to revise for and people to drive about town. I’m sure these things were about in 2017 but they seem more important when there is nothing else to distract me.

Pushing boulder up hil

Getting back into a routine is hard

After three months of constant writing I prepared to re-enter society with every I needed (a laptop, water, bread, two tonnes of caffeine and the disgruntled bear in was sharing a cave with). I stepped out of my hidings and immediately burst into flames.

Three months of doing the same thing makes it so difficult to start blogging again or even just do anything aside from write. I got into a habit that I’m now attempting to break and even though I planned for April this still caught me off guard.


I did it.

I don’t actually remember how far into Draft Three I was before 2018 but it definitely was in the first quarter. I edited three quarters of a 120’000 manuscript that’s 90’000 I edited in the last three months. And while it may not be impressive to some, it’s what I set out to do and I am so proud of myself. I’m definitely doing it next year and that’s not at all because I’m experiencing writer’s withdrawal!


So yeah, that’s been my thoughts on the first three months of 2018 and before I forget:

Happy Two Year Anniversary you stupid manuscript with no name!!

Writing Tip: 120#

Don’t be afraid of writing the new and stupid, like giant flying whales ridden by God’s (though that’s my idea back off)



Writing Tip: 118#

Remember to keep your energy levels up when writing.

Have some coke near by…

no not that kind.
