Welcome to my first post on this blog where I intend to address you, the reader. This is the second blog that I have created on WordPress. My other being a blog that relates to my work, my life and all my hobbies. If you wish to go there first please follow the link below.
I have created this new blog as my fiancee is currently pregnant with our first child and I wanted to create a space where I can record my thoughts and feelings and also connect with other dads around the world. The world of parenting is new to me and also a little daunting. There are so many things that I have to learn it what seems like a very short period of time.
To give you some brief information on myself. I am a 26-year-old dad to be who works full time and studies part time at The Open University. My degree is in English Literature and Creative Writing and my goals for the future are to become a full-time writer. I am currently working on my first novel which I started in October of last year. My novel is a fantasy horror story about a boy who goes missing in a small village. Shortly after his disappearance, peculiar things start to happen in the town. I don’t want to go into too much detail here but if you are interested I would be happy to tell you more.
I am an avid reader, mainly novels of the horror and fantasy variety but I do also enjoy delving into something new occasionally. I am also a bit of a fish and ocean life addict. I keep a living reef aquarium at home with a variety of fish and corals that I tend to daily. I like to play video games but would consider myself to only be a casual gamer. I’m not much of an online gamer, I’d much prefer to get lost in an open world story driven MMO than a repetitive online game.
That’s about as much as I can tell you at this point and if you got this far then thank you. If you like my blog please feel free to let me know. Encouragement always goes a long way! If you are Dad or Dad to be like me then I urge you to connect with me as I would love to hear about your experiences!
