A little about myself. I have been, for the last six years, a mature student at the Open University, studying for BA (Hons) English Literature from which I have recently graduated with an Upper Second Class degree (2.1). Six years of reading, studying, researching and writing (lots of writing) and now it’s all over I find myself wondering what to do next.
The answer was obvious: write. That is what I have been doing the last six years and so it makes sense to continue on that journey. I am, what the ancient Greeks call, a grapheus, a writer.
This blog will record my journey as I put to use all that knowledge and experience, ranging from the Arts, Classical Greek, Shakespeare, and Creative Writing whilst practising the art of writing (and also filling my time with something I hope as fulfilling as University). It will also be a platform to promote myself, and my work.
One area I will write on is that of books, authors, and writing in general. I am, of course, a bibliophile. I just love to handle books, especially old ones. But it is the words inside that delight. I hope to share some of my thoughts on my favourite authors, themes and surprises I have found while reading the written word.
