I’m writing again; 2019 is half gone, I’m 41, I am still working on part 2 of the bird series, and that will be with you soon.
I also entered a writing competition and wrote a 4000-word short story about a superhero cat that fights in the supernatural dimension, I won’t hear the results for a while but I’ll put it out once the process is complete.
A lot of other good things have happened, this website with its current design has been launched and I have started a men’s discussion group at work. This year I intend to take a bit of a break from my degree to concentrate on my writing and make a big push. In light of that expect more material from me video’s, social media posts and updates to the blog.
Goodness my youngest child has gone from being a we diddy thing to towering over me and the rest of the family since I last wrote, that stuff is scary.
My oldest two left home although one has also come back, after a temporary overseas jaunt.
My 9-5 for the past year 3 months is more in line with my long term objectives and I no longer have a 45-minute walk to the bus stop which is huge.
I have begun running almost every day and am on a mission. My idea of a man is in progress, and part of it certainly involves losing the excess around my mid rift and adopting some muscles. Again this is me building the dream me, if I in the process I inspire anyone that’s a great bonus. If you want to build a completely different version of a man that’s cool, in fact please do. My message is being authentic to yourself.
To yourself be true and all that good stuff or as in the words of Thor’s mother Frigga; “Everyone fails at who they're supposed to be, Thor. The measure of a person, of a hero, is how well they succeed at being who they are.”
