So why ‘couch magpie’? Well all the good names had gone and I thought that given that most of my time at home is spent sitting on the couch coupled with the fact I am magpie orientated (you will see as this blog develops what I mean by that) it was as good a name as any.

The intention of most bloggers I guess is to share their opinions about stuff. I figure that I watch enough tv and films. listen to enough music and read enough books to offer an opnion up to the milieu myself. Additionally I do write in my spare time, so I thought this would be a good place to jot down some random musings about plot points and the writing process in general.
