    So, I may have realised where I've been going wrong. I've been writing multiple stories but finishing none. The problem is, I write all of them from the POV of a teen girl. As a teen girl myself, I tend to shove my characteristics into the character. For instance, they're all sassy as hell. I get irritated by the character and give up.
    I've just started writing a story from the POV of a 40 year old male inmate of a prison in the future. So far, it seems to be working and I'm finding it easy to differentiate who the character is, from who I am personally.
    Here's to a successfully finished novel in the future.

    I wish you all the best of luck and I'll think of you all whilst I drown my sorrows tomorrow night! :')

    I imagine this is how I'm going to look tomorrow night.

    Some of you might have noticed my absence, but one of the joys of completing school and coursework only to then go on and work 32 hours a week to save up the £1100 I need to fund my foundation degree at an Arts University hasn't left much time to remain active and write. However, these are minor problems in a world where I am so blessed to be able to access this kind of education and get to go on to a form of education I'll finally be able to enjoy.
    However, my inactivity has allowed me to still pop in and keep up with some of your shenanigans. I'd like updating though, and I really need some stories to read guys! So link me your work please :)
    Secondly, I'm now 15000 words into Essence, but I have unfortunate habit of editing my draft as I go. I need to stop this and just get the words out onto the page. I also have an idea to write a story about a necromancer, but more about that at another time.
    If I get into university, I'll be more active here and if I don't and I have to get a full time job, I'll be trying my hardest to stay here as much as I can.
    It's nice to be back!

    So, the most romantically inept, sarcastic and taciturn teenager (that would be me by the way guys) has decided to write a romance story. I'm about to expose something disgusting and vulnerable about my true self...a hopeless inner romantic. I may live to regret this. Or not.

    mumbled "So I have mid terms this week. I should be revising, but..."

    My mid terms are literally mock exams of the mock exams of the real exams. They are ludicrous and just another chance for the school to see how stressed we are. So I have decided that the recent end of my writers block takes precedence over this ludicrously milestone of my education, oops.
