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 – 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 – Aftermath

Wednesday, 8th May 2019. 09.18 It was pissing down this morning so I gave Louis a lift to school. I returned home. Twenty minutes later I was at Carter’s. Being at home was like breathing soup. Christ. I’m lucky to have a friend like Carter. 11.29 I’m still at Carter’s. I watched Zombieland and now I’m watching Gross Point Blank. …

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 – Back To Work.

Monday, 15th April 2019. 09.08 Well. I’m an work. I built it up to extremes in my head but it’s been OK, so far. A bit of a frosty reception but that is to be expected. Give it a couple more hours and we will see if it returns to normal. If not, I’m sure within a couple of days …

Going Gonzo – Hell To Skelter

Saturday, 13th April 2019. 12.51 I thought I might escape any Adulting today, but one look at Louis’ trainers made me realise I wouldn’t. One shop and one credit card transaction later, we were in the George. We sat upstairs and ignored each other. I watched the gutter of life(that includes myself), come up and down the spiral stairs. An …

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 – 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 …
