|Helping to beat the Breaking Bad Blues? Not really, no...|
Anyway, I haven't gone completely cold turkey on anything Breaking Bad related - I'm a regular visitor to YouTube, and I swear, no word of a lie, just getting a couple of minutes of a BB hit by watching a clip from the show or one of the many fan tributes out there, it's like getting a dose of a drug you can't live without. It's ridiculous! I tell you, if you haven't seen Breaking Bad yet, don't! No, seriously, don't. It'll ruin you. TV will never be the same again, believe me. Everything else just seems rubbish after that.
However, one programme that seems to have bucked that trend for me, and one I was really hoping would do that, is The Paradise, which started its second series last night on BBC One. I absolutely adored the first series, despite not being a fan of costume dramas. Okay, I'll admit, the only reason I gave it a go in the first place was because I had a teeny-tiny crush on Emun Elliot who plays John Moray in the show, but once I started watching it, I just fell in love with the world it had created.

So, whether I like it or not, I've had to emerge from my Breaking Bad bubble, at least until I start watching reruns, because I've got another novel to write. The third and final installment of the sexy Striker Trilogy is underway, and I'm about to spend the next few months in the company of hot footballers and sexy sports reporters. Not a bad way to spend my time, I have to admit... And, once that book is written, I'm going back to a book I started a few weeks ago. A book featuring a bad boy the like of which I've certainly never written about before - a story of running away, of escape; of love and betrayal, and secrets and lies so explosive... I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to get back to that book. I've already written about a quarter of it (I'm getting quite good at multi-tasking now), and the story is mapped out from beginning to end so, it's just a matter of writing it down, really.
All is good in my writing world at the minute. There are exciting times ahead, and, well, just watch this space is all I'm going to say for now. But things are happening...
Okay. I've rambled on enough for a Monday morning I think. Time to grab another lemon and ginger tea (I've suddenly become addicted to the stuff), and get myself sorted for another week at the desk. After a quick visit to YouTube though... It's all part of the therapy... ;)
If you're a fan of Breaking Bad you might want to check out my fun blog dedicated to the show HERE, but beware - it's full of SPOILERS, so, if you haven't seen the show yet, be warned...
