Writing out your dreams once you wake can also be a way of getting your creativity to flow. Don't be discouraged if very few of the ideas get anywhere, the main thing is to try. (less)

I think that it would be interesting to experience a bit of the Hobbit's lives, with their simple way of living. Hang-out in the Hobbit taverns drinking ale and eating the tavern fayre, maybe do some fishing along the banks of the Brandywine River. If that ever got dull I could always find some dwarves to go on adventures with, maybe kill a dragon or discover a forgotten treasure. (less)

No One is Perfect

No one is perfect, least of all me. Sometime ago someone gave a review to one of my books, "Monsoon Love, and Other Nepali Stories", saying: "The stories themselves were fine - quite engaging for the most part - but my kindle edition was sorely in need of a good edit".

That is fine and fair enough, as I say, I am far from perfect. I have no editor other than myself, and Microsoft Word Check, to... Read more of this blog post »

“Independent trekking guides, like Bhadra Shrestha, are vital to Nepal's struggling economy since all of their income goes directly back into the local system, unlike the larger and internationally owned and runned companies.”

“To become a writer a person must read constantly, the more varied the writers and their material then all the better. One must also have a lot of life experience, travel to exotic locations and live among the local people. Yet most importantly a writer needs the determination to keep at their writing regardless of what others might say or think about it”
Andrew James Pritchard

“I have always been considered a bit of an outsider, and a general failure at everything I put my hand towards. In fact, you might even go so far as to say that I’m a lesser being of great insignificance! I state this because, when writing a story, you should always start the first line off with at least one basic truth.

-First lines from the novel Sukiyaki”
Andrew James Pritchard

“by travelling to all the corners of the globe it allows me to further define the ever changing world we live in, which in turn helps me to redefine myself, therefore it is an important process towards becoming a complete person.”
Andrew James Pritchard, The Man in Seat 11B

“I swear, either I’ve done something very wrong in a previous life, or I’m saving up all of my karma for a rainy day.”
Andrew James Pritchard, Sukiyaki

Andrew James Pritchard, The Man in Seat 11B

“Then there was Buddha meddling in, telling all of the Hindu, Hebrew, Christian and Islamic gods and demons that they were nothing more than unenlightened fear induced figments of nirvana-starved mortals.”
Andrew James Pritchard, To Revolt Is a People's Right

“-The very absence of the freedom to criticise against your own or any other government is all the more a reason to loudly shout-out for democracy! If that is wrong, Drew boldly went on, -then I would rather be wrong then to be numbered among the majority of the so-called righteous people whose only mandate seems to be controlling people. If a government is against its people expressing themselves, then that government is obviously hiding something criminal from its people and the world, and it is therefore afraid of being exposed and losing whatever power it has.”
Andrew James Pritchard, Circle In the Sand

“Ah, and then her beautiful face…actually, the level and angle that she was holding the umbrella, the whole time as she passed within Suresh’s view, only allowed him to see the bottom of her chin at most. Still, with a body as beautiful as hers, Suresh was quite certain that her face would be nothing less than positively stunning!”
