 I was challenged by Tim from to list 10 things I love and here is my belated list sorry it took so long for me to make it I was busy recently with a bunch of stuff going on both personally and with my writing and got behind with my other commitments.

10           Screenwriting- Be it sitting down with a well-tailored outline or just winging it and hoping for the best the craft of screenwriting is something that fascinates me still and with each new script I learn something new about the process and about myself.

9              Film making- I haven’t done this for a long time but desperately wish to again very soon, I miss the search for answers to unpredictable problems that go with shooting guerrilla style.

8              Movies- From the moment I watched E.T. for the first time I’ve been hooked on watching movies of all kinds no matter if they are good, bad or indifferent I always get something from them.

7              Music- I listen to music all the time as a way to cope with my health issues and if you ask anyone close to me they will tell you I listen to some terrible music but it helps with the pain and the depression.

6              MMA- Probably not what most people would associate me with enjoying but I have been fascinated by martial arts since I was a kid and find the sport very enjoyable.

5              Philosophy- I have read philosophy books for a long time and find comfort and at times annoyance in them but mainly comfort.

4              My Country-  Yep I may take the mick from time to time about my Country but deep down I’m a patriotic kind of guy.

3              Comedy- everybody loves a good laugh and if it’s Billy Connolly, Dara O’Briain or Jim Carrey I love both stand-up comedy and film comedy I have found them both a great way to kick back and relax and forget about anything crap going on in my life.

2              Family- Probably a popular pick for most people or maybe not haha just depends I guess if you had a good upbringing or not.

1              My Girlfriend Emma- I’ll get pelters from people, definitely from my brothers for this one but hey I don’t care it’s the truth.

So there is my list of 10 random things I love, I hope to have some updates about some possible ventures I have lined up in the not too distant future in my next post but untill then.  

Thanking you

  1. Ah, yeah! A great top 10! Also trying to get your film thing going. It's tough but don't give up. If you want to let it rest for a while, fine but never give up on your dreams. As for the podcast and writing...GO FOR IT! I know you can do it. ;)
