Enjoy… even a bit boring it has some interesting ideas.


Whoa. It’s been a while. Like 3 or 4 months? Sorry for being MIA for so long! I’d like to say my New Year’s resolution was to update this blog more, but that hasn’t really been working out, as evidenced by my inactivity. So I apologize profusely. But I bring a gift: some notes about motivation. Enjoy :) Hopefully there will be more to come! 

#72 - Noctis Point, Chapter 6

When Alex awoke, the shuttle’s interior was dim, a single red light shining balefully from the ceiling. Alex shifted in his seat, trying to get a better view of the other passengers. The padded harness he wore was restrictive but not uncomfortable, like something from a theme park the orphanage had been to, many years before…

As Alex sets off towards Mars, and the Noctis Point base, he meets his fellow recruits. But Noctis Point is a school like no other. A paramilitary training school for psychs, it is the first and only hope Alex will have of mastering his talent.

This year, Pocket Fiction will be host to the entire run of my novel Noctis Point. Each episode will be produced sequentially, taking me through to September. Coinciding with this, I will be releasing Noctis Point later in the year as a Kindle book. 

If you have a few minutes to spare, it’d be great if you could leave a review at the iTunes store! Every review helps! You can leave a review by viewing the podcast in iTunes itself, and clicking on Ratings and Reviews. 

Even though I’m serialising Noctis Point, Pocket Fiction is always looking for submissions! If you’re an author, or you know an author, and you have a piece of fiction you would like to hear in the weekly podcast, drop me a line!

Each track is also available as a podcast through the iTunes store; on Tumblr; and on YouTube

The secret to winning any argument, according to a Harvard psychologist

The secret to winning an argument? For starters, don’t think of it as a zero-sum game. Or so says renowned social psychologist and Harvard Business School professor Amy Cuddy. Instead, think of it as an opportunity to learn more about the person you’re fighting with and you’ll come out on top — or maybe even both parties will win. “What about that moment when they’re saying something you actually find to be incredibly objectionable and incorrect?“

  1. Brain Fog is a thing and I have it. More detailed post to come.
  2. That is pretty much all I can do.
  3. Re-watching Psych on Netflix. 
  4. Played pub trivia last night. Our team “Uber Taxi” was not as “pointless” as the name suggests.
  5. The chicken thigh sandwich at Roofers Union lived up to my recollection/expectation. All I have to say is “Honey Sriracha.”
