Last time I sat down to type, I was preparing for my final module at the Open University and hunting for a full-time writing job. I had no idea what was coming and was balls out terrified slash excited of what was coming.
Now six months later, by day, I've delved into the world of bridal content and financial articles. By night, with my Bailey's Irish Cream in hand, I've been creating mythical creatures in an exotic garden and faced execution and immortality. I have one more project left on my course and i'll have my brand spanking bachelors degree to show off.
Advanced Creative Writing has been more than I could've possibly imagined. I'm not just using the writing skills in my day job, but also my creative writing. I've met so many passionate and ambitious writers, I can barely tear myself away from my course material. As a fan of fantasy, I always knew that's where I belonged. I was never the girl who fit in, nor did I ever crave to. I lived in the realms of a Tim Burton film, listening to Lana Del Rey, when I wasn't up to my neck in fantasy fiction.
Thankfully, the past 6 months hasn't just been writing fantasy stories, I had a temporary job as an In-house Copywriter and I'm now enjoying life as a freelance content writer.
The next step is still hard to tell. I could be working in Advertising or I could be doing my Masters, either way I'll be spending my summer finishing my novel and hopefully tanning up on a beach with a cocktail in hand!
