I’m Balladeer, London ML (I like to think it stands for Master of Literature) for National Novel Writing Month and infrequent composer. This site is to provide a public outlet for my writing, my NaNo-time blogging, and, occasionally, my music. May (does) contain swears, up to and including the c-word.
Writing-wise, most of my material is fantasy, involving dragons and fairies and such. I’m inspired by Terry Pratchett, although I doubt I’ll ever be as good as he was before the embuggerance caught up with him. It does mean that I veer more towards lighter jokier writing than the weightier styles of “epic fantasy”, which I find rather dull.
Composing-wise, it tends to be mostly videogame-inspired stuff. I can’t say I do a lot of this, I’m more focussed on the writing at the moment – the current musical content here is all requests. If you (yes you) have a request for a videogame-themed or more classical piece, shout it out: I’ll more likely than not give it a go.
