Hi, I am Brendan, a former professional checkout chick from Melbourne, Australia, who has always had the ambition to get his writing published and to type shorter sentences in little boxes titled “All about you”.

Since I was quite young, in my Primary School years, I took a great liking to creating stories. I would even go so far as to revisit my old completed stories, that were on display in my Grade 4 classroom, and make edits.

This grew from there, and a few years later, when classmates were writing 1-2 page stories, I’d be writng 20 or more. This actually promted my teacher to question me, and asked who wrote my story – seeing as how I doubled as the class clown, she didn’t believe I could have written a serious, rather long piece.

Since then, I have still been writing, even for a time I did poetry readings each month. It seems, though, my creativity was left to wither for the better part of 10 years when I worked in supermarkets.

It is still a work in progress. / Hope…

The remaining chapters have been planned, some in quite a lot of detail, and just need to be flashed out some more. I’ve been fully immersed in it for the last two or so weeks, after leaving it for so long. Now I’m determined to have a full draft of the complet…

Cutting, culling and expanding

I’ve been continuing to work on my long dormant book this week. It’s been in the same unfinished 8 and a bit chapters stage for so long, then suddenly BAM! I’ve woken up, finally. / I’m constantly going over what I have written and adding and subtracting, chopping and changing. . . / Things are happening. as a result, you poor people will constantly be bombarded with up…

Something clicked

It seems, finally, I’ve woken up. I haven’t done this much writing for several years. / Today, I started going over what I already have for my story that’s been years in the making. I’ve made some minor adjustments and am looking forward to actually finishing a full draft of this thing. / I figured it’s time to take control and perhaps a few chances. I took a chan…
