ellen kathryn darbyshire
My name is Ellen, I’m 17 and I like writing so much so that I’ve dedicated a blog to all the rubbish that my brain churns out whilst I’m having my tea or waiting for the bus. I also like reading, and drawing, and study Creative Writing, English Language and Graphic Design, so it’s all related it one way or another. I’ve no idea what I want to do in the future – maybe some form of journalism? (hint hint, BBC and other media outlet representatives who are obviously reading this right now) – but I think I’ve missed my chance at being a neurosurgeon…
I also love animals – so much so that I don’t eat them – and keep three ex-battery hens (Gretchen, Spinelli and Jill). I also have a kind of newly developed obsession with greyhounds. As much as I love writing, I just don’t write much anymore, so I hope this blog will get me going.
For the sake of transparency, some recurring themes you may or may not find on blog are:
- Book reviews
- Vegan and animal rights discussion
- Short stories and flash fiction
- University babbling
- Film and music reviews
- Whatever nonsense I feel like writing!
