Why I’ve found writing a script useful:

As I mentioned in the last update I’ve been writing a Sitcom script for a university assessment. Whilst something I am brand new to, I have found that it has improved my writing for other projects and helped with writers block. As such I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on why I’ve found it helpful. Continue reading “Why I’ve found writing a script useful:”

Writing Update:First drafts

Age of Sigmar: Detriment or Improvement?

Games Workshop launched Age of Sigamr in 2015, replacing Warhammer: Fantasy Battles amidst great controversy. It has however stood the test of time and with second edition just around the corner bringing a host of new rules and abilities, I thought I’d take take a look at AoS so far. Its successes, failures and areas in which I believe it could stand to improve. Continue reading “Age of Sigmar: Detriment or Improvement?”
