A welcome to Twenty Eighteen
A big welcome to Twenty Eighteen to those who have been following this site. I began this site – The Write Stuff – about six months ago as another outlet for my creative writing. As many of you have seen, I have posted multiple reviews of books, films, television shows, and video games. These are reviews of what I have been reading, watching and playing – and I hope many of you have found them of interest.
I have also taken the time to write about the process and skills of writing. This year I will continue to show snippets of my creative fantasy story: a story with three key characters and set in multiple other worlds. I will also continue to post my reviews in Twenty Eighteen, with my new number rating down the bottom. Keep in mind that all these reviews are positive affirmations of what I am reviewing – giving reasons to watch, read, or play the particular media being reviewed. I will also add some further thoughts on education and writing based on my personal experiences in the classroom.
Apology and Explanation
I do apologise for the long absence here on this website. As stated before, I took a holiday to the neighbouring land of New Zealand. Alternatively, a land you may know as Middle Earth. There will be a reflective post on this in my upcoming newsletter – which will be released in the next week. So if you want to receive this email please subscribe to the mailing list. Otherwise you will miss out on the updates and bonus content.
That aside, I was also busy travelling around Australia in the short holiday break. Now that I have come back ready to teach I am also ready to continue posting site content. I will be posting several reviews (details of which will be in the newsletter) and some new reflections on writing – including some new thoughts on the use of POV (Point Of View) in writing.
I am looking forward to posting some new creative content on here: reviews, story edits, and thoughts on writing. There may also be time to write an anthology sci-fi project this year and add it to here!
A new discussion-based writing project with a writing group friend is going to be posted shortly. Keep your eyes peeled for details on this and the link to this project. All I can say at the moment is it is going to be based on the idea of global unifying narratives. Specifically how creative writers can write stories that unite people.
If you want to see this, and/or more of my creative writing feel free to comment, email, or follow this site. I want this to be the year of more content on this site: whether it is my own content or other’s content. So if you have any ideas or thoughts please message or comment. I want to have competitions and use this site to get beta readers in this year so if you want these features and options please subscribe now and show your support!
I have also been inspired to start a YouTube content channel with a mixture of reviews and faith-based exploration of pop culture. Keep an eye out for the link in the future!
