Welcome to the official home of fiction author and content writer: Gary D Holdaway! Here you’ll find anything from flash fiction, short stories, and lifestyle posts, to a whole load of other ramblings. It’s great to have you here! Feel free to scout around the various sections of the site, or just dive right into my full catalogue of work below!
The ‘To Himself’ project is an ever expanding reflection on life, death, and all in between, exploring elements of philosophy, psychology, history, and more. As much as I am a writer, I am first and foremost a philosopher, and spend each day delving deeper into what it means to live and be happy in this ever-changing world. I dive deep into the psychology of popular characters and create case studies breaking down what we can learn from our favourite movies and shows, study the works of the ancient philosophers, journal daily, and work to improve myself internally and externally. I post one or two reflections on the site each week, a post every day over at Patreon for my subscribers, and post tiny snippets and quotes on Instagram to help remind myself, and my audience, of a small piece of wisdom to help guide our minds throughout the day.
