Time for an update

I've finished education - the English lit books are done with forever - and am now self-employed, so I get plenty of time for writing. Also, I've joined a fortnightly writer's group, who demand a poem and prose piece every meeting, so that's keeping me busy and writing in new areas as well.

So, my work. Um. I used to write a lot of fanfiction, but I wandered over here to post poetry mainly and now do mostly original stuff. My football (soccer) inspired collections come simply from a deep love of the game and my local team; I can honestly claim to have gone through every emotion ever evented in supporting them and I think I made a few up as well. I also broke into journalism through this - I write match reports for the local papers, and let me tell you, it's not easy to describe the third 3-0 defeat in a row without resorting to swearing.

There's also a large collection of romantic work; most of it based about the same man who I had a crush on. No, I'm not giving out his name.

Other poetry on here is more randomly inspired, from thoughts and feelings, song lyrics, whatever and is based on whatever I was intrested in at the time. I have a tendancy to get bored easily, therefore my work meanders.

Fiction wise, I've got a few short pieces up here, with more to come. Covers a wide range of genres, fantasy, war, romance whatever. I've knocked out a few bits that are novel lengthish, and I'm after getting them published.

Reviewing - I love reviews, but quite frankly, I don't get as much time to read others people's work as I would like. I'll try to review yours in exchange, but if I don't, I'm simply trying to get some sleep instead. My apologies, I hope you'll understand.

My actual email is now walthamstowas4eva@hotmail.com, if you'd like to get in touch. This is a particular invite to male millionaires (single), publishers, and agents but I'd love to hear from anyone really. You are the people that guide my work.

The boy kicked out at the world

The world kicked back;

A lot f*ing harder.

The Libertines, Can't Stand me Now

Moral - you can't beat the worl on your own, but together, maybe we could.
