Welcome to my ‘Creative Corner’. I’ve decided to use this page as a place to do writing exercises and play with genres which I wouldn’t normally.
For Christmas 2016 I was given an amazing gift from my partner’s family which I see as a
great exercise tool. It is a book titled Creative Writing and it’s by Eva Glettner. This is a book which labels itself as ‘A journal with art to kickstart your writing’, and as some of you will know, I struggled for a while with a huge case of writer’s block. I figured this book would be ideal as a tool to get me back into the habit of writing and a nice break from working on my first novel.
The book is full of art and to go along with each image is a little description or a start off point for you to create your own story from. However in the book you only get a page to write and finish this story. So I thought rather than having to hand write a short story on to one page, why not write a short story on my computer and then share it with people.
So that is exactly what I have decided to do. I will take a story idea from the book, but rather than be limited to just a small page I’ll write as much as I like in notebooks, on my iPad, computer etc. and then share them online.
As I already have a Wattpad account, which has some parts of my Hydryth book series on, I figured it would be the perfect place to upload the different short stories I write from this creative writing book.

Thanks in advance for reading.
