So much of my energy over the past three years has been dedicated to gaining a single sheet of paper. It’s not an especially unique piece of paper. After all, millions of other people across England and the world will have very similar slips of paper of their own. It’s odd that something so small… Continue reading On Endings and Beginnings
This is a completely random post but I just wanted to share these adorable pictures from a messenger call with my Mum earlier today, when I was in the midst of getting ready and ordering food, and getting happy birthday sung to me 😀 These are my two kitties and while at uni I… Continue reading Happy 21st to Me (featuring two adorable cats)
It's official. Robot Dreams is currently with my beta reader, who is going to go through it both line by line and through the whole story to get it ready for me to shape up in draft three! To make it easier for her, I printed out a copy of the manuscript, under a potential new title… Continue reading It’s With My Beta Reader!
As my New Year post proves, I'm really close to finishing Robot Dreams and I'm super excited. There's been some pretty massive changes from draft one and I'm much happier with the quality of writing in this draft, although there's a long way still to go. I'm going to write this evening and hopefully I'll… Continue reading Finishing Robot Dreams [Draft Two]

There's moving out of my student house this week too, on Friday, which feels much longer ago… Continue reading Beginnings and Endings
Without going into masses of details... Exam results and the shakiness of my hands as I sat in my student bedroom with the curtains open staring at a computer screen waiting for the system clock to tick to 11am. Listening to Nickelback as I've got a weird addiction to Rockstar the last few weeks, distractions. Logging on.… Continue reading I Did It!
Oslo A short piece written for a travel writing contest... before I re-read the brief and realised the finished piece had to be only around a *paragraph* long. Thought I'd post it here instead. - E My best travel experience started the way that any trip does: with a long journey from my home to… Continue reading oslo
The truth: While I've phrased this as the truth, it is my experience and perhaps only that. Or maybe thousands of other people feel the same and aren't able to share it. Writing here feels a little like screeching into the void right now, but hopefully this message will speak to someone. It isn't… Continue reading Working Class at An Elite University: My Thoughts
