A new year. A new decade.
Last year was incredible on so many levels. From a writing perspective, i finally managed to publish a book – The Favourite Son – available on Amazon. I’ve started the new decade in a positive frame of mind; still working on my fantasy novel but things are speeding up as I pull all of the scenes together.
Obviously I can’t spend all of my time at work and writing; everyone needs down time. Thankfully, there’s been some great tv shows and games released recently. The Witcher was a delight, started slow but really came together and the ending left me wanting more. Henry Cavill really is perfectly cast as the cynical, brooding Geralt and though it wasn’t as polished as Game of Thrones, it was a fun and easy watch that was able to fill the fantasy hole in my life! It even made me pick up The Witcher 3 on the Switch; after 50 hours on the PS4, it’s still a joy to head back into that world and its many interesting characters and stories.
The final Star Wars film of the Skywalker Saga was released! Did exactly what I expected. An easy film that hit all the beats the audience looks for in a Star Wars film without pushing any boundaries. Bit disappointed with how it made The Last Jedi seem irrelevant but it was enjoyable and kids should love it. The next show I’m waiting to see is Picard. Continuing the adventures of Patrick Stewart’s iconic captain is going to be incredible after all these years. I remember coming home from school and watching The Next Generation with my Dad so it’ll be a joy to see new adventures involving Star Trek legend.
Hopefully next time I post I’ll be able to give the good news about my untitled fantasy novel being finished. Writing this year has started well so let’s hope that continues! Fingers crossed anyway…
Hope everyone reading has a wonderful start to the decade. See you all next month!
