Trust you're well. Welcome to blog section you curious creature.
This post has no particular direction, but sometimes that can be a good thing. A lot has changed. A lot of darts have been thrown with my eyes closed. A lot of them landed in great places, some landed in the rubbish tip across town. So, here's a mixed bag of updates. Some good, some sad.
- I've written two new screen plays. Both started out with serious subjects but suddenly became dark comedies. This is how most of my writing turns out.
- Wrote a book load of flash fiction for the Dublin International Film Festival. That was fun and challenging. I tried to keep my extra short stories to six or eight words. Give it a try.
- I'm developing a delicious new condiment that I hope will grace your tables someday soon.
- Currently in the process of moving in with my partner. Naturally, it's terrifying and exciting.
- My brother is finally making the trip home from California after 5 years and he's bringing something special, my nephew. Not to mention, his wife and my good friend.
- My grandfather (Larry Jordan) passed away. He was a true example of a gentleman and a great friend. When I was a little fella, he used to take me on a train to the seaside town of Bray and spend every penny putting me on fairground rides and arcade machines. He would turn his pockets inside out for anyone in need of a good laugh. I could write a book about the man. Everyone has a Larry Jordan story. I'd like to give you a few, but I'll save that for another time.
I didn't expect to write that last one, first time I've given it thought in a while. Probably because I've been avoiding the reality. None the less, it's always good to talk (or type) these things out.
So, back to my first sentence. Writing without direction can be a good thing. As cliché as this sounds, your subconscious will lead you somewhere unexpected.
Talk soon folks,
