About Mark Newton

Born in 1981, live in the UK. I write about strange things.


  1. You know what I like about this blog? That it isn’t just the usual social media bullshit. I scroll through my SSR feed, zip by such titles as “9 Laws of Querying” and “How to Write an Intriguing Protagonist”, and stop whenever I see Mark’s name. Because I get to see stuff like this, or the photos of abandoned Star Wars sets, or some un-smug environmental awareness, or Scotch. Blogging should be about more than blogging, just like writing should be about more than being a writer.

    Cheers, Mark.

  2. Thanks, that means a lot! I think a few years ago I was guilty of banging out those kinds of posts, but I found I got bored of writing them – you can bet people were bored of reading them too. So I’ve gone down the scrapbook route instead. Nice to know there’s at least one person out there who approves!
