Going Gonzo – I Think I’d Be Good For You And You’d Be Good For Me.

Thurday, 23rd May 2019. 16.53 As some of you may know. I have started the long and exciting task of turning “Journal Of A Desperate Man” into a novel. The main problem I am having is naming the main character. It seems like a simple task but, it’s amazingly hard. Such a small thing. Naming the desperate man?!?! Who would …

Going Gonzo – Writing An Escape.

Tuesday, 21st May 2019. 22.17 I’ve spent the evening watching Shaun of the dead. Followed by Jack Taylor. I quite like it. It’s got Iain Glen in it. He’s an ex-Garda in Galway. He’s an alcohol. He’s a private detective. What’s not to like? I managed an extra 600 odd words today. Not the 2000 I’d hoped for but it’s …

Going Gonzo – I’m a lot like you, so please, Hello, I’m here, I’m waiting.

Friday, 17th May 2019. 06.31 It all feels very familiar. Like a warm blanket. The six twenty nine train to Waterloo. Coffee by the little fella at the station. Headphones,…… Nicey. 11.46 Just to make it really like the old days, we had MaccyD’s. It’s like I’d never left. 13.37 Onwards to London Wall. A little job which I was …

Going Gonzo – What happened next.

Saturday, 11th May 2019. 11.01 First off. Yes. Of course, I went off the rails, spent money I didn’t have and got shitfaced for a couple of days. It would have been rude not to. Anyway, it’s Saturday now. I managed to make the work related phone calls. I’m unsure if I’ll have won Monday but I’ll remain positive. The …

Going Gonzo – Wonder Boy

Friday, 26th April 2019. 23.11 Friday nights eh! So far, it’s been successful. I played little RDR2. Sean saw me online so we had a catch up. We laughed about the crazy times. I drank a few Corona’s. Now I’m continuing watching Vexed and smoking a fatty. It’s the little things. I’m not sure I just wrote that. It didn’t …

Going Gonzo – Bank Holiday

Friday, 19th April 2019. 11.41 I’ve had my big sleep. I’ve answered my final email of the week. Now, it’s just about me until Tuesday. I’ll be truthful. I really don’t know what to do with myself. I am currently laying on my bed, listening to Park life. I’ve just hit End Of The Century. I’m dressed. The windows and …

Going Gonzo – The Fear Of Survival.

“Once you think you have tasted death. All that is left, is the fear of survival” – MP. Wednesday, 10th April 2019. 20.23 I found myself squatting in the shadowy undergrowth. Down by the edge of the water. My fever induced sweat, dripping off my eyebrows, down onto my cheeks. I could see the happy couples passing, as the beads …

Going Gonzo – No More Of That Talk.

Friday, 5th April 2019. 09.59 “No more of that talk. “ “Or I’ll put the leeches on you.” Exactly right. That’s the talking to I just gave myself about being such a doom monger. After all, it is Friday. I should find something to enjoy. No. Not drugs. Something wholesome, creative,……..? I say this every weekend. So, by rights, it …

Going Gonzo – The Wordsmith, The Jester & Bard.

Wednesday, 27th March 2019. 21.43 The only emotion left, is that of fairytale and music. Now reality has bled me dry. Leaving just a functioning husk. I will cry for the wordsmith, the jester and bard, but never again, for me and you. Thursday, 28th March 2019 11.05 The internet at the office is playing up. This means no phones …
