I’m Back

It’s been nearly 3 months since I last wrote on here. How time flies. I’ve been getting used to a new job and a new sleeping pattern. It’s been a struggle at times and writing these blog posts keep on slipping from my mind. I’m back now though.

I have a new computer, an actual desk top computer. Writing feels more professional while I sit at it. I’ve been writing most mornings before work. Getting anything between 500 and a thousand words done. At the moment I just hit 47000 words into my new, and as always, untitled novel. This is going to be the longest thing I’ve ever written and I feel like it’s going well. Not sure when it’ll be finished, because this is a long story and I’ve got a long way to go. It’s a story I’ve been working on since I was in sixth form, but finally pieces have started to fall into place.

I’m going to start uploading Homecoming again, which I’m annoyed about how long it’s taken to get on here. I’m going to make a page with all of the previous chapters on it, making it easier for people to catch up and keep up to date. That should be done early next week. I’m also looking into getting both Homecoming and The Broken Pocket Watch into print and kindle books. Editing takes a while and it’s not fun, but I’m taking it more seriously.

I’ve been reading and listening to e-books while walking to work. I’m nearly at the end of the Wayward Pines trilogy, which feels so much better than the TV series. Even though I know the general plot, it’s still good to read the original story. I’m also reading, My Sister, The Serial Killer, which is really great. Not a long book and I expect to be finished pretty soon.

I did recently listen to the audiobook version of Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son, written and narrated by Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez. That was a great book and a great insight to some really good films. I’ve never been a big fan of memoirs, I read a bit of them and then get bored, but listening to them read the book made it a lot more engaging and I really enjoyed it.

I’ll be back soon with new chapters and new updates. I’m sorry it’s been a while, but at least this time I have been writing.

Thanks for reading,
