The Second Draft.

I've finally finished editing the first draft of 1:58 and if there is anything I have learnt from this experience of using a red pen on my own work it is this - I can be brutal.

‘Love, Rosie’ Film Review

Critics are calling Love, Rosie a mediocre Rom Com with no depth or originality but after watching it, I have to disagree. Love, Rosie is so much more than what it appears, if you look deeper into the story, it will definitely steal your heart.  An adaptation of Cecilia Ahern's epistolary novel Where Rainbow's End, the film focuses on… Continue reading ‘Love, Rosie’ Film Review

Writing And Planning My Novel

I've had a few days off from the whole book process but it's definitely time to start it up again. Most writers will say that free writing a first chapter is the way you should go about it. Well, I tried that. I'm more of a planner than a free thinker so I went back… Continue reading Writing And Planning My Novel
