Hey guys 🙂
So this is my very first blog post. I’ll start with a brief intro as to what this is all in aid of.
Since I was mere babby (as my da would put it) I’ve had a real grá for writing. I really have no idea where it came from though, as you could pay NOBODY in my family to write words on a page. Maybe this begs further questioning, hmm….?
Anyhow! Remember those story titles the teacher gave you to write in primary school? Most people hated them. Me, however, I loved them. Even as a child I loved sitting down and describing just about anything with a pen and paper (probably a blunt pencil on second thought).
‘Personal Writing’ in secondary school clarified that creative writing was the only subject I trumped! Unfortunately, my fondness for writing was overshadowed by the leaving certificate English paper 2. I just could not deal with critically analysing Shakespeare or Jane Austen’s in such a limited amount of time. I guess I had forgotten what it was like to just sit and write, the way I wanted to!
So here I am now, in the lovely month of May 2015, trying my utmost to get back to where I think I belong: Journalism.
Thank you if you have read this far. I hope this is the first of many blogs I will write!
