My Favourite Reads of 2018

With Christmas now just a couple of days away, Earl Grey Editing is shutting down for the year. I’ll be on holiday as of today until 7 January, making this my last post of 2018. Before I go, I thought I’d share my favourite reads from this year. These are not books that were necessarily […]

My Favourite Photos of 2018

In recent times, I’ve started a tradition of sorting through my photos for the year and posting some of my favourites here on the blog. I enjoy being able to share another side of my creativity and some of the memories that come up. Looking back on 2018 left me feeling like this year has […]

My Favourite Photos of 2017

Last year was the first time I pulled together a collection of my favourite photos I’d taken over the year. I enjoyed it so much that I thought I’d try it again this year. However, I have to say that I don’t think my game is quite up to last year’s standards.   Earl Grey […]

Podcasts, Earl Grey Editing

Audiobooks

One of my goals this year was to try audiobooks. They’d never particularly appealed to me; I had podcasts and music for the times my hands were busy and books for the times my hands weren’t busy. However, I ended up with some eyestrain while judging the Aurealis Awards last year. I found the experience […]

Friday 13th: Zombie Edition

Today is Friday 13th, a time for superstition, witches and monsters. Since I’ve already covered witches, I thought this time around I’d celebrate this auspicious date (and its proximity to Halloween) with a few zombie stories. Despite the fact I’m making this post, I’m not actually all that big on zombies. Feed by Mira Grant […]

Three Years

Tomorrow marks the third anniversary of Earl Grey Editing’s blog. I’m celebrating with Lamington cake: vanilla sponge cake dipped in chocolate and covered in dessicated coconut, layered with jam and cream. It is delicious! So, three years. That sounds like such a short time and yet it feels like I’ve been doing this forever. I […]

My Current Podcast Playlist

I’m a podcast fiend. I find they’re a great way to keep me entertained while I’m doing housework. Over the last few years, I’ve ended up with quite a few shows to listen to. They fall into three broad categories: Books, Media and Culture This is far and away the biggest category. It includes podcasts […]

Feminism and Tabletop RPGs

At Continuum 13, I had the pleasure of sitting on the Tabletop Gaming panel with Aidan Doyle, Darryl “Owlbear” Brown, Laura Wilkinson and Bryce Campbell. The discussion was a mix of designer and player perspectives, and remained an upbeat conversation throughout. We could have continued for hours. One of the things I touched on in […]

2016 Aurealis Awards in Retrospect

The 2016 Aurealis Awards were presented on Friday night. Congratulations to all the winners! As most of you know, I had the great honour of being one of the judges on the panel for YA novels and YA short stories. Now that the results are out, I’d like to share a few thoughts on what […]

Earl Grey Editing's favourite photos of 2016

My Favourite Photos of 2016

  Photography has become an interest of mine over the last few years. I don’t have a fancy camera, but find my phone generally does the trick (sometimes outfitted with a macro lens). Since the inception of Earl Grey Editing’s blog, I’ve used my own photography for posts. At the beginning of the year, I […]
