Most bloggers are either enthusiastic writers, contented readers, or avid readers trying to turn to writing. I am definitely the latter. I spend the majority of my time reading, whether it’s the latest best-selling novel, fan fiction, short stories or even psychological articles or journalistic view points. I love being transported to different worlds and hearing other peoples opinions and their evidence to support them. But, no matter how hard I try, I simply can’t seem to write an original story.
Don’t get me wrong, I can write stories. But they all seem to follow a very similar plot as Lord of the Rings and I just don’t think that can count as ‘original’.
So my plan is to, whilst continuing to try and write blogs about general ponderings and life events, I’m additionally going to try and upload some short stories as well. I’m not going to lie to you, they will probably suck. Seriously suck. But I’m hoping that the internet will be able to tell me:
A) How much they suck, and;
B) What I can do to improve them.
So please, if you have any tips or general feedback, I’d really appreciate it. Also, if you have any helpful information about how to get started or anything like that, that would really help.
Wish me luck!
I’m going to need it…
