I deleted my previous blog (sixdegreesofwriting) due to not being fond of it anymore, so I decided to create a new one which will solely consist of my pieces of writing and miscellaneous stuff.
As my first post, I want to tell the story of how I got into writing. It’s one of my greatest passions and I’m currently studying a degree in writing at university.
When I was twelve years old, I got into the habit of writing in a journal. It became an excessive habit of mine and I loved putting my feelings on to paper. Subjects included my days at school and what I thought of the news at the time etc., and I loved it. This activity carried on for about a year, and this habit soon turned into a passion that still resonates within me today.
I’ve always read books since I was young, but I never thought I’d want to write my own story. This all changed after, for I started to write my own short pieces of fiction. I concentrated when learning about descriptive writing in English, and I started to achieve high grades on all pieces I wrote. Shortly, I decided I want to make a living from writing, and I made the choice of becoming a writer as my future career prospects.
I have written pieces of prose and poetry for years, but unfortunately, none have ever been completed. I aim to write fantasy and horror fiction and I’ve recently taken up the practice of songwriting (although I can’t play the guitar yet, that’s a current work of progress!)
So, there’s my story on how I got into writing. Although I haven’t completed any projects/pieces to be able to publish on this blog yet, I certainly will in the future! Thank you for reading, and I hope you’ll enjoy reading my work when I finally get around to publishing it!
