The monster within the blue fence

I’m so excited for this post today.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m in my first year at University studying creative and professional writing. As well as doing my degree I’m also working on a chapbook and a short story on the side.

I’m doing a lot of writing at the moment, as to be expected, but I don’t want it all to be put side in a folder and never see the light of day. So, I’ve created a new category on my blog called By the author and here I’m going to share with you all what I’ve been working on. This is by no means my portfolio (my online on is currently under development and will be making an appearance on my blog next year) but a casual space for me to share my work as I experiment with new writing techniques. I feel like this is a great way for you guys to get to know me in a different way, and I can start to build an author platform and be something more than just a blogger.

All of the work I share is my own so please do not use without my consent. Continue reading “The monster within the blue fence”

Things I’m grateful for – pt4

Well guys I’m officially at University!

I’m settling in and feeling ok. I haven’t gotten used to the cold yet or the fact that everything is bilingual ( I don’t speak a word of Welsh) but it’s feeling like home slowly. I was nervous about Freshers week because I don’t drink alcohol, but thankfully no one in my flat does either so it’s been surprisingly nice (and to be honest not drinking hasn’t been such a big deal). By the way, if you want me to write about going through freshers as someone who doesn’t drink then please let me know because it’s something I’d be interest in talking to you all about.

I’m pretty tired from overly socializing (I’m too much of an introvert for university) so I’m going to break myself genially back into blogging and not burn myself out by doing my fourth installment of things I’m grateful for. Hope you enjoy. Continue reading “Things I’m grateful for – pt4”
