It is weird to feel that I have done so much writing recently, and yet none of it has been on here. I’ve had this story kicking about in my head since last July, and over the months it has turned into a ridiculous amount of scribbles on various pieces of scrap paper. Fed up of constantly losing, then finding, then re-losing these pieces of paper I decided to actually put some physical structure to this story. So now that it has actually started to take shape in the English language (as opposed to scrawlings that only I could decipher), I have started pondering what to do with it once it’s finished. Somebody told me to self-publish it as an ebook, but I don’t think anybody would actually want to buy it and it feels a bit ridiculous going to the effort of publishing it just to hand it out for free when I have this blog at my disposal. So I thought that maybe I could post it here, in ‘chapters’, but I don’t know if anybody would actually bother to read it. I could set up a separate page for it so that it wouldn’t get lost in with other blogs (because I do love a good rant). I guess that I could even go as far as to set up a separate blog just for fictional posts. I could self-publish it in physical form but that would cost me 3months wages for about 20 copies, and I definitely have better things to spend my money on (hashtag student problems!), and I know that my writing is definitely not good enough to catch the eye of a publisher. What do you think?
I’ve also started self-studying a Freelance Journalism course, so hopefully I might be able to do something with that soon too!
