2012 update

I have been awash with whisky, ink, words and rum, along with the usual cigarette smoke and chess to ease my thoughts. 

AND while doing this I have been working on two separate books while writing the screen adaptation of my short story LETTERS TO VANESSA with director and friend Andy Wooding.

The most I have learned from working in this new medium is that: they’re different. Short stories, novels, screenplays. They’re totally different. Each can do something the other can’t and the key is to let go, adapt YOURSELF and play to the medium’s strength. 

Collaborating is also quite fun, despite my hermetic ways. It allows me to share my crazed thoughts with someone else instead of driving myself nuts with them.

The film is looking to shoot in May and I am looking forward to it.

All yours,

J.H.

WRITER’S CORNER

Good evening/morning/whenever you’re reading,

I have finally refurbished the WRITER’S CORNER section.

There are now mounds of information to be found about WRITING CRAFT, WRITING BUSINESS and WRITING LIFESTYLE.

I hope at least some is of use to you.

J.H.

Welcome to Haydock Heights

Hello world.

Pleasure meeting you.

I am an author of Crime, Mystery and Romance.

Non-writing enjoyments include Chess, smoking, whiskey and reading.

I work hard because I love it, and would much rather be up here writing my fears and dreams away than anything else.

Letters to Vanessa

Welcome to Haydock Heights

All yours

James Haydock
