MY NEWFOUND NERDNESS




See?....there's my lad, first thing this morning (getting ready for school) admiring - not under duress I might add - this fantastically crafted homage to Nerd-dom.

May I draw your attention to those ruins in the foreground, lovingly carved from polystyrene with a stanley knife, and exquisitally dry-brushed (yeah that's a Nerd term...too complicated to explain to you Norms). Look at that detail....phwoaarrr

Ahhhh...a masterpiece. I'm almost tempted to abandon the writing career, march on down to Games Workshop and offer myself to them as a Nerd-for-hire.

Nuts.

I've got some work to do on novel number 2. I'm lunching with my editor tomorrow and he'll want to discuss the edits I plan to do....and more importantly, what I've got lined up for book 3. I really need to stop stroking my battlefield and go and do some desk-time.

And no, he's really not going to want to look at the thirty-three other pictures I've taken of it. Must...resist...urge...to...bring...digicam...along to the meeting.

nice layout mate, one small problem is where is your boy going to sleep now??.
Good fun though I'm sure!

it does look good alex...but really...im sure your wife is shaking her head in dispair at you!!.... and now your son has power over you in his teen years...he knows your a geek...sorry...Nerd!!

Alex Scarrow said...

Heh...don't you just want to towel-flick my love-spuds in the shower along with the other jocks, whilst yelling N-E-R-R-R-R-D!!!

Anyway. i think I'm okay now. I got it out of my system.

Actually I'm pretty sure it's a common affliction for guys. I mean who hasn't, at one time or another, felt a powerful, secret, sinister urge, to put together a Warhammer diarama? eh?...

...guys?...

Ahem, right. Just me then. ;-)

parmenion said...

im seriously and psychologically disturbed by your use of a towel!!
Im sure its just the product of a private education...those boys have strange shower habits!!

You will become a fully fledged modelling Nerd when you use an airbrush to paint the little bits more artistically. Fortunately I'm not a Nerd, I haven't been able to find my airbrush for four or five years (grin).

Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Bless you!
