The Number 23

I watched The Number 23 today on my computer. An amazing film, epic story and fantastic acting. Check it out at amazon here: Amazon- The Number 23. Don't watch if you're the kind of person who is easily influenced by film, otherwise you'l end up seeing 23 everywhere you look!

Breaking Up


Today is the start of my halfterm 'break'- that's code for a time for me to do revision!
As part of CSFS on there has been a dragon raid going no. Essentially what this means is this: Review as many people as you can between the 23 and 27 May. Now, I've done what seems to be about an average number of reviews for a raid, but for me it's a hell of a lot! I've done 14 reviews since the 23rd. They've all been quite detailed reviews mainly of poetry. It's amazing the quality of writing there is on the site!
Still waiting for The Final Summit from BookSneeze. Might stick with an E-Book next time!

UPDATE: In the end I did 18 reviews and won the prize draw- I get to Lead CSFS for a week starting Monday

English Exam


I've got a big english GCSE exam tomorrow at 9 am. It's on Of Mice and Men, An Inspector calls and an unseen poem. At 2hr 30min long, it's the longest exam I have. Good news though, is that once I've finished the exam I no longer have to go to the english class! I will be able to read the books I want and write more once all my exams are over.

Wish me luck!

Writing dot community


Just thought I'd post about WDC, or A great site for all those who write and for those who just want something to read. With a comprehensive reviewing and rewards system; a simple interface; email capabilities; simple uploading process; and many levels of member ship ranging from free all the way up to premium options, WDC really is the place to be if you're a writer. Better still, if you write fantasy or sci-fi -like me- then you can join one of the ,most active groups on the site, the coffee shop for the fantasy society, or CSFS to its friends. Since joining, I've written 5 articles, 2 short stories, 2 poems, and 3.5 chapters of a novella. Adding to that the edits I've done of those plus the two original items I had before joining, and add to that 65 forum posts and 116 reviews given, I think that I've done a fair bit since joining. I've also recieved nearly 100 reviews from a variety of members. The quality on the site in amazing and I've yet to find a problem other than I spend way too much time on it!

First Post, Frst Blog, First Word is 'Hi'


This is my first post, on my first blog. Depending on how things go, it could be my last. Wait, that could be read in different ways. It could be my last if I find a better blogging service, or get bored.
Well, I'm not sure how to finish a post off so here it goes.
