THE DIARY OF ROBIN
DUE TO AN EVER INCREASING WORK LOAD IN OTHER AREAS I HAVE DECIDED TO DISCONTINUE ADDING TO ROBINS DIARY FOR NOW...
I AM CURRENTLY BUSY EDITING MY FIRST NOVEL AND PROMOTING IT AS WELL AS STARTING ON IT'S SCREENPLAY. I ALSO NEED TO START MY SECOND NOVEL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
ROBINS DAIRY IS, AT THE MOMENT, NOT IN KEEPING WITH THE SCIENCE FICTION THRILLER GENRE THAT I AM PURSUING WITH MY BOOKS AT THIS TIME.
ALTHOUGH ONE DAY I WILL RETURN TO THIS IDEA, FINISH IT AND HOPEFULLY TURN IT INTO YET ANOTHER BOOK, I FEEL IT IS ONLY SERVING AS ADDED WORK THAT I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO KEEP UP WITH.
PLEASE READ THROUGH WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN ALREADY AND FEEDBACK TO ME WHAT YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE IDEA ARE, ALONG WITH ANY CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM YOU MAY HAVE.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME...
"The diary of Robin Didcot."
The idea at the moment is in its
infancy and I am slowly piecing together my thoughts and feelings on how I will
approach this mammoth task.
Have you ever watched a Zombie movie
and wondered... What would I do if this ever happened? My wife and I, along
with both our children are avid fans of the genre. It seems these days that it
is the only thing I can get all of us to sit down and watch. This is a scary
enough fact in itself yet, anyone with teenager kids will know that prising
them from their blackberry, facebook, PS3 or other electronic connection device
is a task not to be attempted by the faint hearted. Anyway I digress...
What indeed would you do? Run for the
hills, stock up on water and food, join a hit squad of gun-toting vigilantes
etc etc etc...
As I was saying, all four of us like
nothing better than to hide behind copious amounts of blankets and pillows and
scare ourselves rigid with some mind blowing vision of a future full of the
You know the ones, Walking Dead, 28
Days, Dawn of the Dead, I am Legend, Resident Evil and the list goes on.
As we sit there marveling at the
strangely predictable plots and outlandish special effects, we often discuss
our imaginary plans for survival in a world full of unexplainable walking dead
people who for some unknown reason crave human flesh.
(This zombie trait never fully
explained in any undead story to date.)
In fact I often, probably strangely,
end up standing on the stairs in the middle of the night wondering how Zombie
proof my house is. Would my casement windows and doors hold or would it be
better to nail lengths of four by two over them, just to make sure. Would these
flesh hungry monsters be attracted to noise and if so if we kept quiet, how
long would we go unnoticed? How intelligent would they be? Would they be able
to use tools? How long could we last holed up in or home or would it be better
to make a run for it and if so where to?
Hopefully you are beginning to
understand where all this is going.
Robin Didcot will be an ordinary
man living in a most extraordinary world.
He won’t be some superhuman hero, just a guy who works at the local chippy. How will he cope? What will he do?
All these questions and more will be
answered as soon as I know what the answers are.
At the moment I am on holiday and in
the last stages of finishing my science-fiction Thriller "Recurrence". The plan is to sell a million
copies and be able to give up my day job but while I wait to be discovered (or
ignored), I am going to start work on this diary within a month or so from now.
So if bone-crunching, mindless, undead
souls are your thing then watch this space and come with me as we
