My name is Connor, I'm 21 and I come from a council estate called Bransholme in Hull, England. I'm very interested in literature, and have always wanted to write a story; briefly, I'm just a normal guy trying to get into writing.
Currently I'm a "General Assistant" working for Tesco, I'm taking a year off from education, as I dropped out of school I made a late return to try and achieve something academic, though I know that isn't where my passions lie. My plan is to pursue A levels next September in Music, Religious Studies, English Literature and Classical Civilizations, with the former being my choice for a degree at University.
I've always had the imagination and I believe the ability to pursue it, I've just never taken the idea seriously enough to try. I'm definitely new to it and have little experience except a B at GCSE English, where I wrote a short ten page horror story that was graded an A*.
My inspirations come from my own experiences, as I believe I've had a very strange upbringing, mixed with my interests in gaming, reading, the performing arts as well as other writers work, though I would not dream of plaguerizing, instead, I simply use this for structure and suspense. My biggest influence has to come from my beautiful fiancé. She inspires me daily and has consistently given me new and different ideas that will hopefully help me expand my project into a whole world of character, and also to pursue new ideas once I complete my Bejemot trilogy.
My current writing project is a three part trilgoy named "The Legend of Charr", currently I'm writing book 1 entitled "The Rise Of the Bejemot". I'm trying to combine three different writing styles, each tailored to one of my three main characters and use these to create a unique story platform for my world to grow. I'm only a month and roughly four chapters in and already it's growing beyond anything I expected, and has already become a three-hour-plus a day project thats showing no sign of getting any easier!
I genuinely do appreciate anybody who takes the time to read my work. I know very few people who are interested in such things and I find it hard to gain perspective without an audience, and I thank you for your time and patience.
