Around eighteen months ago, my life hurtled off in a new direction…
Twas the first day of the school year. My brother and sister were ready to tackle long division and Roman history again. However, I had graduated. I had left the world of spelling and composition behind. Or had I?
A few weeks earlier, I had arrived late for breakfast nearly every morning. You see, I was devouring a couple of sci-fi novels… oblivious to the consequences.
Before long, I had my own sci-fi idea. Then, I had a skeleton of a story. Then, I was embellishing. Oh! That idea could go here. Ah! That can lead to that.
And when, on that first day of school, when my siblings were memorising the quadratic formula, when the hours between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. were silent around the house, I sat at my desk, placed my fingers on the keyboard, and realised that the world of spelling and composition was in front and not behind me.
And in the months that followed, I wrote a novel.
And had an absolute blast!
Now, around eighteen months later, I’m sat at my desk again. I’ve got Mount Kenya for a backdrop with zebras, antelopes, and acacias completing the scene. I’ve got a wonderful mum, dad, brother, and sister, cheering me on. And I’ve got a plan—a plan that involves you, too.
In high school, I studied English Grammar for four years, and WOW did my curriculum hammer it into my head. How many times must a boy repeat the comma rules! However, I don’t regret it for a moment. I’m thankful, because we can now exploit it and revel in it. Between my grammar blogs and my grammar editing offer, I wonder if we can’t make those lessons pay. Whether you’re a fiction writer like me or you’re writing a statistical report, let’s see what we can do to make your writing shine grammatically. Click here to find out more about my offer. It’s completely free and, to the best of my ability, completely helpful.
I can also now share my short stories with you, hopefully spicing up your day with some entertainment. I’ll post more stories on this website as the weeks go by, but all five that I’ve written are ready now in a stylish compilation that you can download. If you click the cover (just below), I’ll get it sent over.
And finally in this plan, I’d just like to meet you. Soon, I’m going to embark on my second novel, trying my very hardest to put everything I’ve learned into practice. So, whether you’re a reader, a writer, or a great combination of both, I’d love to go on this novel journey with you.
So, please do say hi!
There are comment sections at the bottom of every post. And you can find me on Instagram, Twitter, GoodReads, and YouTube. And finally, you can drop your email here if you’d like me to keep you in-the-know, up-to-date, and in-the-loop.
