    Yeah I think that'll be the best thing to do right now as I have no idea when I'll get around to creating a blog, especially with sixth form being round the corner.

    Maybe I'll try fan fiction one day and see where it would lead me. But right now I'm set into writing a long novel, which I've never done before.

    I'm really excited to start English Literature at A level. You don't get any opportunity for creative writing, but I'm happy it's more in depth. At the sixth form I'll be joining they have a lot of debates in class, so the teachers have told me. The best thing is they have an English club!

    I believe I've always had such a wide imagination. I'm an only child so I could only occupy myself and came up with lots of stories I used to reenact with my toys when I was younger (haha) xD I also used to love writing stories. It's funny looking back at them. But, I also watch a lot of anime which really gets to work on your creative juice box. They come up with some mad story lines :P

    I'm reading The Mortal Instruments right now as I wanted to delve into a fantasy novel. I haven't read one in so long. It's weird that the typical books I read normally are nothing like the genres I want to write.

    I'll do that then I'm looking forward to reading your work already!!

    Good luck with that! It's very rewarding - I've only ever completed a long novel twice, but you feel so happy when you finish it, it's amazing. Although the prospect of reading back over it and correcting and editing is the most terrifying and daunting task ever. Or is that just me who has that problem? :confused:

    At my school there's no freedom whatsoever with English Literature A level - you have to study Victorian literature, mostly Dickens, in year 12, and then love stories, mostly Shakespeare, in year 13. That's it. I chose not to take it because I hate Dickens with a passion (personally I just hate his writing style, although he was clearly talented) so I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I should, and because I do so much extra-curricular English I didn't think I needed to study it in school any more. I've always done writing courses and weeks away to help with writing, so I'll keep doing those without studying it in school. You're very lucky having such a great programme at your school, including an English club!

    I used to come up with stories and re-eanct them with toys as well! It was one of my favourite pastimes. I've always loved writing as well - I can remember being told off in about year 3 because we were told to write a short story and mine as 9 pages long in the tiny handwriting I had at that point. I just got carried away and was enjoying writing it The funny thing is, I always did stuff like that on my own but I have two brothers. I guess they always just played together so I was left on my own with my imagination. I don't watch much anime, but the ones friends have insited I watch have had some fairly crazy story lines!

    I keep meaning to read those books! Are you enjoying them? I've just finished Insurgent (well, I picked it up yesterday evening and just read all of it, it's an extremely quick and easy to read book. But I enjoyed it) and I'm about to start A Clash Of Kings, which I've been meaning to read since I finished A Game Of Thrones months ago, but dad stole it. :mad: Next on my list after that is Watermark - I don't know if you've ever heard of it, it's nothing like the books I normally read because it's not fantasy, it's a look into human psychology and theories about human evolution whilst still having a plot about crime. It sounded really cool, so I figured I'd give it a go and see what I thought.

    Ahh that's cool I only really publish stuff on fanfiction, I wouldn't dare share my original stuff anywhere and I don't use more than one site, because I'd probably forget to update all of them. I'll check out yours though!

    I know - it's quite sad really, but it's still interesting to think about. Have you read many dystopian novels then??

    Does it?? Aww :^_^: I suppose some episodes are quite scary. That sort of thing just doesn't bother me as much. I can understand why it would bother others though.
    Actually, I'm guilty of not updating either. My last story I updated with 2 chapters a day for a week or so and then just left it hanging (I didn't get many/ any :eek: reviews either because I was apparently updating too quickly for people to get a feel of the story)
    Feel free to check it out
    I haven't read any novels although I did watch a film themed on dystopia. Dystopia is the main focus for my english coursework which is why I've begun to learn about it (it is quite an interesting concept though)
    I'm more into shows like Teen Wolf, The Vampire Diaries, etc; although I never have any time to watch them so I either have to read about what happened or watch the episode 3-4 days after it's aired :sigh:

    That was awfully nice of them.
    By the time I went back on results day to school I learned 2 of my history teachers, form tutor, science teacher and maths teacher had either been fired or left. I didn't even get to say thanks

    Completing the square wasn't needed at GCSE, but it was in Admaths. I'm probably gonna screw my Maths test on Tuesday, but I think I'll get back up to scratch quite quickly.

    Depends on exam board, I guess, but you definitely needed it in Admaths, one use for it was finding the x and y axes intercepts of a circle.
