The Finishing Line Crossed

So as I sit down to write this post, there are two tabs open at the top of my screen. One is for this document, the other is the digital ink which is currently drying on the last words of the final chapter of the completed first draft of my Young Adult/Older Adult/Children’s/Fanfiction-inspired fantasy novel.

Spring in the City

Welcome back folks! Well it’s been around eight weeks now since corona went viral and, through various acts of mismanagement, we in the UK are still under a form of lockdown. Though, to be honest, it seems more like a Common Sense Apocalypse rather than that hit song by R.E.M. I mean, I get protesting, […]

Nothing to Do, But Brew

So good evening, folks? How’s your apocalpyse going? Mine’s going just swell, thanks for asking. I’ve got a handful of symptoms, but doesn’t everyone? I would phone in sick to work and say my plague is flaring up again, but in an uncanny twist work rang in sick to me! In all seriousness, I hope […]

2020 Vision?

So, the world has gone into total meltdown, people are losing their actual minds and I’m still trying to get to grips with going back to work and having aching feet again. So why not give my inane views on this bizarre start to 2020? Yeah, it’s been a weird couple of months. I started […]

Reflections of a Working Man!

Oh yes! It’s true…I’ve managed to rejoin the rat race! And in good time too, for my bank account was threatening to disown me. Yes, its been a whirlwind couple of weeks. which is a fine excuse for the lack of updates in that time. And yes, I’ve actually managed to secure employment once again. […]

New Site Design!!

Hey guys! Bonjour, Bienvenue and Bore Da! (that last one is Welsh for ‘good-day’, by the way 🙂 ) How are you guys doing? It’s Friday, thank bejezeus, and, as Bob Ross would say, “it’s a great day here and I hope it is wherever you’re at”. It’s actually a grey, miserable sort of day, […]

It’s hard to write…when you’re wrong

Ooh it’s back to double-meaning headline time!! But, Ian, what the hell are you warbling about this time, I hear you cry! Well, I don’t, but in my mind my blog is insanely popular and people want to hear what I have to say. Oh, to dream my band of followers! Which brings me to […]

New Year, New Content

So, 2020 is upon us. And as I’m still randomly searching for content for this blog I’ve decided to add a couple more topics to explore. The first one of these is travel. I love to travel, and as my photo above shows I also love tube trains. This will be a topic I may […]

Happy Angry-versary!

An apt title, if somewhat technically incorrect – as anniversary refers to a yearly milestone – but I’m going to allow myself some poetic licence here. For it’s been three full months since I took the decision to leave my previous long-term employment and try to find something more fulfilling, where I didn’t feel I […]

Going Spiritual

It came to my attention the other day that whilst I’ve dealt with my hobbies of writing and brewing on this blog – as well as venting about my dire employment situation – the one area I’ve not really covered is my pseudo-religious beliefs, even though I’ve mentioned it in the title. Now, let me […]
