About Me

I don’t really know how to write a good ‘About Me’ page. This is probably my fifth attempt since I started this blog back in 2009, and I have this slightly sneaking suspicion that this isn’t going to be much better. In fact, of all five attempts, this may well turn out to be the worst.

So, as the tag-line suggests I’m an aspiring writer, neurotic and mentalist. That last one always puts people off, but I’m a mentalist in a good way – for example, I have a bit of a polite-ness tick, in that I’m always overly thankful to people in shops, and I get them caught in a thank you loop of which there is no escape until I actually leave. I’m not really sure where this came from, but when I was about 14 it got so bad that I started thanking vending machines. But this had more to do with the fact that me and my friend were really into Terminator 2  – so much so that I became convinced that machines really would take over the world one day, and until then I thought I should probably cover my bases.

Sorry, I’ve gone off topic. This is supposed to be an ‘About Me’ page but it’s sounding more like notes from my therapy sessions the beginning of my memoir or something.

Also, I’m not writing a memoir. But if I was, that thing about me being worried that robots would take over the world, would definitely be in it (take note, potential literary agents – that alone has ‘Bestseller’ all over it).

I’m currently writing bits and bobs all over the internet and working on a novel. While I aspire to become a full-time writer, I also hope to someday have my own Wikipedia page and to have a photo of me gazing into the distance, looking pensive and serious appear whenever you Google my name… Just like a real writer.

I’m not sure what else to say *consults notes*

Okay, all I have written down are the words ‘geek’, ‘comfort food enthusiast’ and something totally illegible that looks like ‘vegetables’. I really need to sort my handwriting out.

So I’ll end by saying that I am a geek who loves reading, playing video games, watching films who is frequently caught eating cold leftovers out of the fridge. Also, apparently I ‘look like a vegetarian’ but I’m not. At all.

This is the best picture of me I could find. I’m at a wedding, which is why I’m wearing a fascinator. Also my hand is covering my face – that’s probably why it’s the best picture I could find.
