Why I have started a blog

My name is Lucy and I have wanted to be a writer since I could read, I started writing plays when I was in primary school about anything and everything I could think of, I kept on writing through high school but that was mainly my angst-filled teenaged thoughts and now at 19 I am studying English Literature with Creative writing and have never been happier. Since starting the course I have become obsessed with making my mark in the industry so I thought what better way to do that than starting a blog? So that’s what I’m doing. So welcome to my blog.

In all honesty, I’m not 100% sure on what this blog will consist of, all I know is that taking this leap is the best thing I can do and I have zero plans on regretting it or going back on it. Let me tell you more about my journey into writing; as I said above I have wanted to do this since I could write but in all honesty I am very mediocre at this, I even failed A-level English and that affected my confidence to the point I gave up on my dream and went onto my backup plan. Teaching. I started an apprenticeship at a nursery which I didn’t hate but I spent my entire 6 weeks their feeling like I was missing out, I constantly sat there thinking, “this isn’t what I want to do with my life” so I quit, in all honesty, all they did was teach me how to be an underpaid cleaner more than they did anything else. I then spent the next 6 weeks with my friends not really thinking about what I was going to do next. Towards the end of summer I decided to start looking at university courses and I immediately fell in love with course I am currently studying, the modules stood out to me and just the thought of doing it and studying what I loved made me so happy that I applied through clearing about a month before I was supposed to start (with some help from my friends who constantly checked my personal statement to make sure I got to pursue my dream) and I have never regretted acting on that impulse and I know I won’t regret acting on this one.
