Space & Lasers
I'm a free-time screenwriter keen to share my work, discuss my inspirations and just talk writing in general.

Mass Effect: The Inspiration That Changed Everything
Hello everyone! 2022 is nearly over, so I wanted to end the year with a bang by diving into one of my favourite series and one that has served as my biggest inspiration. Quite literally! It completely reshaped the way I looked at and delivered the story of my Nash film series.
Digging into the Tech of Nash
Hey everyone! Well, we’ve come to the last of my Nash info drops. Not to say there won’t be more to share in the future, but I think what I’ve shared so far about Nash (and Highton Heroes) is enough to get a sense of the worlds I’m creating and the stories I want to tell.
The Big Players in Nash
Hello there, It’s been quiet on the writing front in recent weeks. I’ve been taking some time out to reflect on and build up my screenwriting skills. I’ve done some research in areas I considered myself weak and have already learned so many things I’d been missing.
The Main Factions of Nash
Hello once again! I find factions (or groups) an integral part of building a storyworld because it dives deeper than just saying this group is ‘good’ and this group is ‘bad’. It’s a way of looking at the storyworld like the real world. The real world itself is made up of a huge array of factions and groups. Each one has their own view of the world. Their own view of what is right and what is wrong. Whether those groups are ACTUALLY right or wrong really comes down to the way other groups perceive them.
Breaking Down The ‘Galaxy’ In Nash
Hey all! Earlier in the year I dropped a few posts about my Highton Heroes series to purely talk about it from an information perspective. My goal was to introduce you to the world I’m writing in, along with some of the main characters.
Ratchet & Clank is Awesome! Here’s How It Inspired My Writing…
If you’ve never heard of it (how could you not have?), Ratchet & Clank is a video game series that began all the way back in 2002. Since then, it has released 14 video game titles – 8 main entries, 3 side entries, 1 remake and 2 non-canon entries. In addition to this, there’s also been a 6-issue comic book series and a movie.
Some Highton Heroes Techy Stuff
Hey all! Highton Heroes is sci-fi, so naturally there’s some techy stuff in there. When I write up an Info Book for one of my screenwriting projects, I tend to do a hefty section on all the tech (be it standard or strange) that will feature. Sci-Fi isn’t typically like writing for the current time period (or one people know a lot about). There’s often a lot of unique and strange aspects that only fit into this one story world. So, to keep track of everything you’re making up, it pays to have it documented.
The Main Characters of Highton Heroes
Hi everyone! I’m nearing the end of my run evolving Highton Heroes season one episodes from first drafts to fourth drafts now. Only 2 episodes left! It’s been a long process but very rewarding as the narrative starts to really take shape and become more readable (and hopefully enjoyable!).
Highton Heroes: What is Highton?
Hi everyone! This week I’m keeping the ball rolling on Highton Heroes info drops. Recently, I delved into the world surrounding Highton. This time, given the name of the series, I want to deep dive into Highton itself, the city the series follows.
