The Holidays/Anniversary

Dear Saul,

Welp, it’s that time of year again, and my God has this year gone by quickly. Somehow though, I’ve managed to pack so much into this year, it doesn’t seem at all possible. I’ve been a part of a short film, I’ve been awarded the President’s award, and I’ve started writing one of my first ever novels, and continue to write it to this day.

But I suppose there’s another thing to be celebrating, apart from the birth of this kind of cute kid about 2000 years ago. You and I Saul have been doing this blogging shmuck for a whole year! One year, more than 100 followers, and 2000 views have given me pause to consider renaming “Christmas” to “Saulday” in celebration, but believe me, I couldn’t have gotten this far without the help of others. My amazingly talented blogger friends, Charlie and Evelyn, my amazingly talented filmmaker friends Oisin and Colm, and my amazingly talented not all that sane-in-the-head friends Francis, Anthony and Casey, not to mention Tara, Sorcha, Becky, Declan, Cian, Aaron, and the swathes of amazing people I am honoured to call my friends, practically my family . All of them have made this year one of the best so far.

A special thanks to Catherine-Ann, without whom I probably would have given up writing altogether. (You’re seriously one of the most amazing people I know, and I’m lucky to have someone like you around. Merry Christmas!)

Thank you too Saul. Without an imaginary muse like you, most of my stories would have fallen flat on their face!

Finally, thank you to YOU. Yes, YOU, reading this. I don’t care if you’ve been with me from the start, or just found this post by accident. The fact that you care enough to bother reading this is present enough for me, and I can’t thank you enough for everything ye have done.

Happy holidays Saul. Here’s to another amazing year.

Best Wishes,

-Fiachra

Well, it’s a new record, I made 2 posts, then decided to bugger off again for a week.

Nonononononononoooo, it’s not you, it’s me. Okay, it might be you, but it’s at least, 40% me. At least a fifth.

Sadly, I’ll be out of town for a week, but hopefully I’ll get a chance to upload something, even if it’s merely another old ‘That’s Horror-ble’

Oh, haven’t seen yet? My latest upload was from an old tumblr series I wrote on horror tropes, from zombies to found footage. It’s was pretty good, and I thought I would bring the series, cleaned up and re-written, to here, along with some new ones. Hopefully you guys’ll like it and not castrate me, and call me names, and all that jazz. The first one is about how horror had changed nowadays. Sadly, it hasn’t gone well, but maybe I can’t make things a little funnier as it spirals down the toilet.

Guess you could say I…

took the piss…

Lastly, do you like fame? Do you feel triumphant from crushing other contestants under you heel? Are you, like Charlie Sheen, fond of the concept of ‘winning’? Then do I have the competitions for you!

Several blogger friends of mine have decided to host several contests, and YOU CAN ENTER THEM ALL.

the contests and prizes are various, but I would strongly recommend you enter them, not just for your own personal glory, not just to promote healthy competition and make friends, but to batter each other down so that I can sweep in and claim glory for myself.

And I’m sure you’ll do a fine job too šŸ˜‰

I’ve Been Away

Hey Folks. Sorry I missed about a weeks worth of posts. I’ve been visiting family, so I’ve had pretty much no time.

But fear not! I’ll be back on Thursday with a new post to Saul, then on Friday with another casualĀ  post.

P.S: I also have a few short stories to write, so if you have any requests for something, lemme know and I might just do it.

And plagiriseĀ  the crap outta you.

Seriously, not a shred of credit.

Holidays

Dear Saul,

Holidays are pretty much over at this point, all that’s left is few days of relaxation before we get back in the daily rat race again.

But I’m always gladdened to see people take a breather when they get a holiday. No matter what lifestyle you live, no matter what job you have, people always change when given this small freedom. But it’s also interesting to see how people relax when given this freedom.

You see, I’ve always found the change difficult to understand. Sure, it’s great to see someone let their hair down on holiday, but how can someone, given time off, turn into such a drastically different person? It’s fascinating to see people, who work the same routine for years, become these new men and women overnight.

What’s even more strange to me, is that, at the end of it all, most of them will go back to their old routine, no questions asked, as if it never happened. Surely, once you let your hair down, you have to find it difficult to tie it back up in the exact same way.

On holidays you try new things. Didn’t like it? Fair enough. But if you did, what’s stopping you from making it a new part of your lifestyle?

Anyway, that’s enough outta me for now. Enjoy the rest of your holiday, Saul.
