Throughout his school years, Matt was considered to be rather intelligent. Excelling at core subjects such as Maths, Science and English, and enjoying less success in things like Art and History. Despite this natural intelligence, he stumbled his way through his A-Levels (it's a UK thing?) and only just made it into university where he… Continue reading The History of Matt
Don't you just fucking love it when you're trying to focus on the story you're writing when suddenly another idea pops into your head and that's all you can think about? Yeah, me neither. But I'm used to these spontaneous bursts of inspiration so just kinda go with it. My latest idea has a working… Continue reading Spontaneous Story Ideas
Who here honestly doesn't love spam comments? Oh, everyone? Well, I'm doing this anyway. To celebrate the fact I am getting more and more spam comments on my posts, I thought I would actually dignify some with a response. Just the shorter and/or more bizarre ones mind, not the essays or those with a thousand… Continue reading Spam, wonderful spam
I'm actually feeling properly inspired to write! This doesn't happen often. I mean, I'll write poems fairly regularly but I can churn those out pretty quick. It's the story writing I struggle with. But the one I'm writing now, Whispers, isn't boring me yet. I've published the first two mini chapters on here, and actually… Continue reading Ramblings: Feeling inspired
Two years? It's weird to think it's been two years. In one way it feels like less time than that. Yet at the same time so much has happened since I started on here that it two years just doesn't seem long enough. Two years it is though. After all the Ups, Downs and Deviations… Continue reading Happy 2nd Birthday to Me
"Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that." - Bill Shankly I never thought I would be one of those football fans. I would look at the images of supporters in the stands following relegation or a heavy defeat, tears rolling down their… Continue reading A Matter Of Life & Death
The story behind my poem, Am I Wrong? Since the beginning of 2017 I have been using Meetup as a means of socialising and such. For those who don't know, it's a website/app where people create groups revolving around particular interests, activities, character traits, etc. which others join and everybody meets up and (maybe) makes… Continue reading Ramblings: Am I Wrong?
I don't swim. I can swim, I just don't. Some people like to tell me that's bullshit. "How do you know you can swim, if you never go swimming?" "Just because you swam before, doesn't mean you still can." These people tend to be the kind that Eleven from Stranger Things would call 'mouth-breathers.' I… Continue reading Ramblings: Sink or Swim
One of the things I have been working towards this year is my second published work. It consist, rather simply, of all poetry and verse I write throughout 2018. I haven't set myself any kind of challenge to write every day, so this won't be one of those poem a day things. But it should offer… Continue reading Day By Day – Ripples Of Time
Questions without answers are frustrating. Answers without questions are... well, I'm not sure what they are. Random statements, I guess. Anyway, I was nominated for one of the various awards here on WordPress, which I declined for reasons you can read (if interested) here. I decided though to partake a little and answer the questions… Continue reading Some questions. And answers.
