The Way I See It… (Love)

Love is something we all have an opinion on in one way or another. The opinion is most always swayed by experiences in love and you’ll always hear a different definition from person to person. Objectively, what is love? To me, it’s an overwhelming mental and emotional connection towards something. This connection causes you to … Continue reading The Way I See It… (Love)

Ill Prepared

This is just a quick post to let you all know that, due to suffering from sinusitis since Thursday last week, having spent the majority of Saturday and Sunday in hospital with a poorly Caellum, and preparing for Caellum's fourth birthday yesterday, I haven't had the time to arrange a proper post for today. I … Continue reading Ill Prepared

Follow the story of Andy Bruce, a father recently estranged from his daughter, as he’s woken in the night by something very unexpected… and very deadly!

Readers’ Thoughts

As promised at the start of Mental Health Awareness Month, I’ve been amassing the thoughts of readers and, although the quantity perhaps isn’t what I’d hoped it would be, the quality is superb. I have four separate statements from four very unique individuals with different stories to tell and different mental health struggles to deal … Continue reading Readers’ Thoughts

Living the Dream Part 21 (Writing Is My Coping Technique)

I’m tying in this series to Mental Health Awareness Month as I feel the two are quite substantially linked. This series has always predominantly been about my writing and offering an update on how it’s going. In this edition, I’ll talk about why I write. The reason only became clear to me once I was … Continue reading Living the Dream Part 21 (Writing Is My Coping Technique)

Fatherhood–The Toddler and the Thirty-Four-Year-Old Boy

Almost two years ago I composed a rather popular piece on fatherhood. It had to be done. Although I don’t define myself simply as a parent, I do recognise that I’m viewed by most as being one ahead of anything else I might perceive myself to be. That’s fine. It makes perfect sense. Having just … Continue reading Fatherhood–The Toddler and the Thirty-Four-Year-Old Boy

Nothing Without Me (Flash Fiction)

Dan sighed. It was about the thirtieth time he’d done so during the twenty minute conversation he’d been having with Melina, his girlfriend. She was going on with herself again. Did she not realise he had better things to do? “You just don’t see it, do you Dan?” “What don’t I see?” “Point proven! You … Continue reading Nothing Without Me (Flash Fiction)

No Apologies

This is just a quick post to announce my effective return to the blogosphere. I’m sure my two, maybe three, regular readers have missed me! As the title states, I have no intention of apologising for the unannounced break. That would imply that I’m sorry and feel guilty for it. Neither of the two apply. … Continue reading No Apologies

Catch up with previous chapters by clicking this link. It felt like every single set of eyes was on him as he walked through the town centre; as though everybody knew that he had a girlfriend and he was going to meet another woman for coffee without her knowledge. What a bad man! Niall saw … Continue reading Find Me a Find–Chapter Twenty-Nine

Find Me a Find–Chapter Twenty-Eight

Catch up with previous chapters by clicking this link. Claire left for the hen party later that evening. She’d be gone for the whole weekend, which left Niall to do whatever he wanted.
