Hi, I'm too busy and I do too much yay
I typically dabble in a lovely slice of journalism, a dash of fiction, a sprinkle of poetry, a spoonful of comedy sketches and a splash of reviewing
I ought to concoct more often than I do - sorry in advance

Message from Writer

Never stop writing.

That's my message for me, sorry, I don't have a message for you :)

Tick tock 
I don’t know about you 
But I’ve already started counting down to
The year-consuming, stress-inducing four letters
G C S E
Why would I be truanting, why would you be truanting,
Why should we be truanting?
Well you see, my government’s environmental policy
Is causing me to write apologies 
To my school
For missing a day of education
Because instead we’ve got to educate the nation.

What is it you truly value most in your life? What could you not exist without? For me, it doesn’t take long to recognise that it's undoubtedly music. I genuinely believe that anyone and everyone can find, love and use music and they should absolutely have that right. Whatever your culture, situation, age, gender and preferred style, music can enable astounding, inspirational things through such expression, creativity and passion. We cannot deprive ourselves and future generations of this opportunity. I...

I love that young people, especially on here, share strong opinions on climate change and the little being done about it. Just out of interest, are you getting involved with the global youth climate strikes? Good luck with the competition!...

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2019

What is it you truly value most in your life? What could you not exist without? It doesn’t take me very long to recognise that one of those things, for me, is undoubtedly music. I genuinely believe that anyone and everyone can find, love and use music and they should absolutely have that right. Whatever your culture, situation, age, gender and preferred style, music can enable so many fantastic, marvellous, astounding things through such expression and creativity and passion. We...

A QUESTION

FREE WRITING

Dear fellow Write the Worldians,
I was wondering if any of you write comedy sketches and if you had any tips, particularly on perfecting concepts and dialogue? I thought this might be a good place to ask.
Thanks! :)

PROMPT: At Home

Those who know me well will understand my tendency to burden myself. The burdens are sweet and often fruitful, to be fair, but when they seem to gradually engulf me, in spite of tantalizing appearances, there comes a time when I desperately require a chance to simply be at home 'within myself' - mindful, you might say. The ever-repressing darkness of things to do is rather like a gorgeously oozy chocolate brownie when you are fully aware you are about...
