I used to write a lot of fiction when I was younger. My parents bought a computer around 1988 – I used to spend lots of time at it, typing away. My parents were so happy, they thought I was studying like mad for my ‘A’ levels. I remember my father’s disappointment when he realised that the tackataackatackat that came from the keyboard was not the result of biology, physics and maths thoughts hitting the screen, but lines of dialogue forming a play.
I’ve always written fiction or drama for pleasure. Luckily some of the plays or adaptations I wrote saw the light. While I have carried on writing non-fiction (articles, blogs, handbooks, fundraising applications…) I feel like I have neglected my “fictional writing side”.
So I have decided to use the new electronic and self-publishing outlets as an incentive to continue writing fiction.
I would like to share with you the story I am now writing as it takes shape. I am writing it as a blog (the story is in the shape of a diary, so perfect) but you might want to read the posts in chronological order the first time you visit the site. (They are all listed on the right hand bar.)
So, in case you are a bit curious about what I’m going on about: http://www.thescienceofloneliness.blogspot.com.
I hope you enjoy most of it and do let me know what you think!
