@jafwords (On TWITTER)

Loss of the hair but gained a son.

I end up focusing on putting things on twitter that I forget that I also have this website...and for the three people that actually visit it, once every five years, maybe I should add something. 

So it has been a busy 6+ months. Just before the summer holidays my wife and I were busy preparing for the arrival of our son; I was also in preparation mode for an interview. Studying had been done, had gone to Starbucks the day before to do some last minute cramming...and then I went to bed. Now the next part is slightly blurry, the day of the big interview arrived but instead of getting a good sleep my wife wakes me from my slumber (around 4am) with the news (4 weeks early) THE BABY IS COMING.

Okay so as most of you know, it's not one of those frantic motions like you see in the movies. We had to wake our daughter, and take her around to my mother's house and once that was all done, we were on our way to the hospital. 

So we waited for the examination. My wife has such a high tolerance for pain as a result of some medical stuff and as such wasn't really presenting as some in labour. Very sceptically, she was examined and then there was the "oh" moment. Baby was coming and he was coming now! Now we already knew that he was lying in the wrong position, and with him being ready to jump into the world in such a hurry, it wasn't possible to attempt to turn him. So, we were rushed to the operating theatre and before we knew it, we were welcoming our son into the world. Needless to say, I didn't do the interview that day, instead a gained something so much better. 

Happy reading folks,

The pleasant distraction

So when I try to sit down and write I find I am totally distracted. However, I couldn't have asked for a more happy way to be distracted. So my daughter is over 6 months old now. While I would love to get just a little more sleep, I couldn't imagine what life would be without her. 

I manage to use my phone, and an app, to continue to work on some scripts. I have completed the second part of my star trek fan fiction comic; so now working on the art work side of things through Pixton.com. I am still working through some scripts relating to short films. My main focus is one called the PG CafĂ©- which, I will tell you more about at another point. 

So, all I can say is, I am massively distracted at the moment but I will get back into my novel writing soon enough...after all I need write books so young Bethany can roll her eyes and say "Dad you are such a loser". Haha. 

Okay, so sorry about my brief updated. Happy readings and enjoy the picture of me and my daughter playing on the floor.

Renovonoids (Part 1)

This is the third major comic I have created on "Pixton" since opening my account with them and I am having amazing fun creating some exciting new stories.
Renovonoids is set in the distant future where the many (but not all) of the Earths Nations have formed a worldwide Union. However, the descendants of old military genetic soldiers have formed their own Union and war will soon break out.

Renovoniods follows two League of Nations Police Officers as they begin to investigate a terrorist explosion and an assassination attempt.

April Update - Easter Holidays put to good use.

Welcome to April and Easter is almost upon us.

I've spent the last week putting the finishing touches to a second comic book project called "Elysium Rising". So as it stands now I have created two first issue comics - the first was a Star Trek Fan Fiction and the Second was Elysium Rising. Both stories I will come back to, as issue one for each is intended to be Act 1 of a 3 Act story. I continue to make notes about what I intend to for these, but that will change. 

I have also started to create Issue one for the next comic book which just now has the working title "Renovoniods". Yes its a made up work but there is reason behind it. Its an expansion of the Latin word - renovo...Which means: to revive, renew, restore, repair, repeat. The meaning has some significance to the story which I am developing. The title may chance but the idea of who the Renovoniods are will remain the same. 

Editing the Second novel still continues at a slow, but steady pace and I still have my Star Trek fan fiction burning in the background. Time is going to be limited soon as in 4 months my wife and I will be welcoming a new wee soul into this world (which of course we are incredibly excited about). Maybe I will try my hand and some children's stories.
