Blogging 101: What am I about?

Blogging 101: What am I about?

Hi Everybody,

My name is Wayne Mullane. I work in Customer Services for a local council in the United Kingdom. I’d really love to be a writer.

I’m new to the world of blogging, so being on this course is an exciting opportunity for me.

I’m using my blog in order to keep me focused as a writer. By posting my thoughts and feelings I am attempting to publicly commit myself to self-imposed deadlines for the stories that I write.

I mainly read Fantasy and Sci-Fi novels. My favourite authors at the moment include Jessica Grace Coleman, Craig Zerf and Robert Rankin. The stories I write seem to have a flavour of ‘Tales of the Unexpected’ or ‘Tales from the Crypt’. I’ve always been drawn to stories that have a supernatural element and this deeply influences my own writing.

I also love football/soccer and will occasionally put a post up about something that catches my eye.

I think that blogging is part of a mission of self discovery: I’m hoping this blog will inspire me in my journey through learning the craft of short story writing as well as the stories that I write. It would also be great to share the experiences and journeys of other writers too, as well as talk with other bloggers about books in general.

In the next year it would be nice to think that I could get published somehow. I know it will take a lot of hardwork and a lot of vision; WordPress is going to be important to help me maintain that focus

Good luck, everybody!

      Thanks Dorne, I really appreciate the comments. WordPress is like a whole new world opening up! It’s really addictive. I think that it will be a good step into writing more seriously. Best wishes, Wayne
