I find the need to practice different writing things daily. Sometimes my journal helps me get out of a rut, so I figured if I write it as a blog, it may help someone else.
My name is Alice, I am 20 years old and am new to Penana but not new to writing! I'm excited to be entering writing contests and making new friends. So, a little bit of information about myself.
I am a book blogger who created a book blog last January during a really rough point in my life. Since creating this book blog, I've been overwhelmed by the amount of support that I've received from authors, other bloggers, total strangers on the internet. My parents are surprised by the numbers of books that I get set for free, my TBR list is already overflowing as it is!
I like to write poetry, stories in verse and random dribbles every now and again. My biggest dream is to be able to write a 50K novel since its bothering me that I can only write stories that are like 5K long in length XD Something needs to change, hopefully I can achieve this before I go off to University hopefully next year to study Creative Writing (UPDATE: This actually happened!)
Besides from books and writing, I love music. I collect vinyl records and listen to new songs everyday on Spotify, it's like my music addiction plus it's free which is perfect for me. I also love photography, corgis and koalas...
I have two pet cats.
I am also right-handed for writing but left-handed for anything else.
That's all for this post, thanks so much for reading. Don't forgot to follow me here on Penana, Wattpad (same username as it is here) and all of my social media (clickable links are in my bio on my profile).

"I've been writing for five years now," I say, leaning back into my chair whilst retaining my terrible postural habits and taking a sip of my disgustingly plain water. "And I still don't know squat, y'know."
Welcome to the place where I ramble on about things that I heard here and there, dropping writing tips and tricks that work for me and also some tips and tricks that don't. Plus, I'll be flaunting my near-forgotten computer science GCSE as I pretend to know what I'm talking about whilst guiding you through computery things. (Don't worry, I'm starting basic.)
To tell the truth, I'm a terrible teacher. But I'll be trying my best.
NOTE! As with most crafts, I still have a way to go. If you think I'm wrong about something, I probably am - so please feel free to correct me where necessary. I will continue to update as required from this end as well.
In this story, I will tell you how I met and gave my best friend a home. I love her so much.

I was in the path of totality, and it could have been beautiful...but it wasn't.

AKA: We're all a bit mad around here. Hello! Welcome to the personal journal of nine people and counting! We have Muse, who never stops plotting, Emily, who never stops feeling, McGee, who never stops analyzing, and Tim, who doesn't know how to deal with all of this, just to name a few of the members of this mess!
We're kind of insane and have some sort of dissociative disorder probably enjoy your stay.
