Hi there everyone, I’m a sixth former in my last year of A-Levels, hoping to study English Literature and Creative Writing at University. I’ve joined because I feel I need more input on my writing and because I think being part of a community like this should help further my passion for writing. Being entirely honest, it has been a very long time since I actually finished a piece of writing - at the start I’m happily caught up in whatever idea has come to me, but by the third sitting I’m usually extremely judgemental and critical of everything that I’ve done and have planned. I just give up and look for a new idea, which in turn follows the same pattern. I’m hoping that a bit of guidance is all I need to address this - as it is a worry for someone who is looking to do Creative Writing at University! A little about myself. I'm 18, I live in Wales, I'm an avid jazz/blues guitarist currently playing with two bands. I have a great interest in creative film and entertainment and my favourite authors' novels are James Baldwin's Sonny's Blues and Khaled Hosseini's The Kite Runner. I hope to be spending lots of time here!
