Camp NaNoWriMo 2019

Hello everyone, No. This isn’t an April fool’s joke. I am taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo 2019. Last November I took part in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and wrote 50000 words in thirty days. Camp NaNoWriMo works along the same lines.

Spitfire Review: Tomb Raider

Spitfire Review: Tomb Raider

Today I’m reviewing Tomb Raider the 2018 film, looking at the history of Lara Croft and examining why most films based on video games fail at the box office. I’m going to be honest, I did not have high hopes for Tomb Raider. It’s a film based of a video game and the previous actress …

Spitfire review: Camden Fringe

Spitfire review: Camden Fringe

I’ve always wanted to go to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I want to visit Scotland, many writers and artists I admire perform or have stalls at the festival and it sounds like an incredible experience. Sadly I’ve not had the opportunity. In late July 2017 I discovered the Camden Fringe festival, a very similar experience …
