Hi :)

I've started writing pretty much since I first learned how to do it. Even before then, I loved coming up with imaginary games and fantasy lands. But now that I'm older I prefer writing more realistic stories.

    Hey guys, I hope you all haven't forgotten about me!

    Those of you who remember me would know how much more of an active member I was on here and I used to post a lot more often. But unfortunately I'm not too sure how I can fit everything in anymore as I feel so bogged down with school work.

    I never realised that A levels would be so difficult until I got my AS results which weren't as great as I planned. The fact that I have to resit some of my AS modules, keep on top of my current work, as well as have the thought of UCAS and my future constantly at the back of my mind... it's quite overwhelming. As well as this I have voluntary work, piano, driving lessons, and a job. Plus I need to sleep, have a social life and find time to see my boyfriend who gets upset when I don't see him enough D:
    On top of this I'm currently 3/4 of the way through my first proper novel (well the first one that I might actually complete!) but I've only published the first few chapters because I feel as if once it's done I will have to do massive amounts of editing before I want anyone to read it. xD

    I don't know why I'm even on here right now as I'm supposed to be doing my maths homework... but I thought I'd at least tell you guys what's been going on. I hope I'll manage to find more time in the future to be more active, but at the moment it's not looking too promising.

    In all honesty I don't know how I'm going to manage with all of this for much longer as it's stressing the hell out of me.

    Are any of you experiencing something similar? How are you coping with it?

    @Alice♫ Thanks :) and I want to study mechanical engineering at Nottingham but I need at least AAB to get into the course o_O. What about you? Yeah definitely, it usually takes a little while before you get the grips of your course.

    @Alice♫ Aww that's cool :) I actually wanted to study that at some point but I've changed my mind a lot over the last year haha. I think Cardiff is supposed to have really good English courses but I'm not too sure.

    Aww okay :) I really enjoy maths and physics, especially mechanics, and I thought I would benefit more from doing an engineering degree. It's not going to stop me from wanting to become a writer though so I'm still going to write whenever I have the urge :)

    An interesting start! I like how you write as if you're talking to the reader, and I like the cliff hanger at the end. Keep up the good work :)

    Thanks Nina. I need someone to honestly compare this story to the story Prisoner because I'm a bit rusty and I want to make sure I'm not moving backwards. I've added another chapter to this story but could you maybe compare them and tell me what you think please? Thanks again

    I've read up to chapter three so far.
    I really loved the way you described Destane in this chapter - it makes him seem like a really interesting character. xD I also like how you build up a sense of mystery here (...can I just say that your description is amazing? XD )
    Sorry I'm taking so long to read this! I'll let you know you know what I think of the other chapters once I finish reading them :)

    This is really good! I like the sense of mystery that you create, particularly in the preface and your use of description. I also like how you express the character's emotions in a unique way - it's very intriguing.
    Occasionally some of your writing is a little choppy so make sure you don't use too many short sentences next to each other. Otherwise this is very good, well done :)

    I find that I often write a movella, decide I don't like it and delete it. Then read it again, decide I like it and add it again! (Then I delete and add it again xD ) Does anybody else do this?

    Hahahaha. I get ya. It really is!!! :) There are some poems and stories that I've written about my parents or family that I always take down and put back up. I dunno, for some reason I always find myself second guessing about the super personal stuff. :D
