I have never been much good at writing blogs as not only am I a really private person who is virtually a recluse, I live a life where not much really goes on to warrant having a blog. My innermost thoughts get written down in my journal and that is not for anyones eyes for the sole reason that I don't want to be sectioned. :D I much prefer to write fiction because in fiction you can get away with anything and in creating a piece, no matter what its about, there is always a part of yourself that is left in amongs the words; some emotion or truth that you wouldnt want to admit to. Sometimes, its a deliberate effort but more often than not, its a subconcious thing and you dont realise until afterwards. When this happens to me, I often want to remove it or change the wording but that would entail removing the very essence of the story. Writing dark fiction entails opening a door in your mind and dragging things out that leaves you uncomfortable to begin with but as the words drop out like blood onto the page or screen, it becomes as natural as eating a mega bar of Aero in one go and feeling not one bit of guilt. Maybe deep down, the people in real life that you could really murder always end up behind that door ready to be taken out kicking and screaming and placed on a page, and maybe thats why a lot of horror writers look like serial killers. ;)

    I'm the most boring person that I know so there will be no titilating gossip or scandal in this blog unfortunately...if you want that then read the Daily Mail. :) but I will be writing about the everyday stuff that drives me and others crazy and I will blog about my writing and any success I may or may not have. Sometimes the most boring stuff can contain little gems of enlightenment and as Auriela says in her journal right before she died, its the simpler things in life that make it worth living and which make it interesting...
