Welcome to my Writing
I would like to welcome you to the first of what I hope will be a barrage of many posts charting the rise -and falls- of my career as a Writer. This blog may also include articles or pieces of writing I have done. In all honesty I am not too sure how the blog will develop it's self, I am kind of just going with it and seeing where it takes me.
There are a good few reasons why I have started to write this blog. Primarily I need to become more disciplined with my writing, as such I will produce at least one blog a week though I will aim to put at least something up every day. I hope through this that I will develop a good writing pattern; time will tell.
Secondly this moment in time seems to be one of those crucial development points in my life. This Sunday will see the first Sunday that the local church I attend enter's into it's new 2000 seater building. It is an incredible time in the life of the church. In fact tonight was the first time I had been into the building and well... WOW. It's amazing, but I might post something up on that later on.
Also come Monday I will be starting a new degree at University. This degree is English with Creative writing and I do believe I have to keep a writing log for one of the modules, so I figured I may as well begin now. Look out for a blog with regards to my first day come Monday. Eekers. I am soo excited.
So yea, I guess those are the main things that are happening in my life at the moment. Oh and the fact that I entered my first Writing competition last month. The Arvon Foundation's Poetry competition, top prize is £5k which would nicely pay for my University tuition fee's. So I am most certainly praying that I win something as I am fairly skint at the moment and dont have any money to pay for my tuition fee's, kinda trusting God on that one.
If anyone has a job for a prospective writer or even fancies paying for my tuition fee's then by all means get in touch hehe ;)
How rude of me, it has just occured to me that I have begun rambling on to you without any formal introduction of myself. I am Nate, it is a pleasure to meet you all. The last two years of my life have been occupied with studying Computer Games Technology at the University of Huddersfield. The degree finished this summer so I now have an FdSc in Compter Games Technology, oh yea, I sound geeky now. Got to love the geekyness!
My hobbies include writing and video games -quite obviously- as well as playing percussion, riding my motorbike and boxing. I do have a few other things I enjoy occupying myself with, such as day dreaming, but those are the main 5.
In person I'm not much of a talker, yet it seems when ever I sit down to write something I can just ramble on and on and on. To which I do appologise in advance.
At this very second in time I can not think of anything else I need to introduce so I shall get to finishing this post. I do hope you enjoy what wierd and wonderful things I will post up in the future, but for now I wish you all a great day and pray that I do get some readers hehe.
Please do leave comments with questions or... comments.
Keep safe, Have fun and God bless
