Section 1 - About Me

So, as I have already mentioned, my name is James. I am a 14 year old writer who lives in the UK or more specifically Sheffield. I am in full time education, I am talented at academic subjects especially English! I am not too good at subjects like Art, I try and draw a cat, it ends up looking like a tree. True story. I enjoy playing sports such as Cricket and Athletics.

Section 2 - My Short Stories

The type of thing that I write the most are short stories. They are my specialism. I prefer writing them to novels because when I write a novel I usually get bored after a few chapters. I have written many short stories however only a few of them are published, I will post links to my favourites below...

Today is the day - Less than 750 words

https://www.booksie.com/mystery_and_crime/short_story/jamesb/today-is-the-day

This poem is definately one of my favourites. It is short so it doesnt take to long to read and it has quite a simple plot with a nice little twist at the end. Hints to the twist can be found throughout the poem however differant people realise at differant times. I would recommend that if you have a few minutes, you read it!

Merry-Christmas! - About 1500 words

https://www.booksie.com/horror/short_story/jamesb/merrychristmas

This story is great! It isnt really associated with Christmas much. This story is about a woman who is not celebrating christmas this year. When she comes home from work she finds that something isnt quite right...

Section 3 - My Poems

I dont usually write poems. I dont have a very poetic mind however once in a while for one reason or another I feel the need to write a poem. When I do, I am not usually pleased with so they dont get published here. However there are a few of poems which I am pleased with so I have published them, here they are...

 

I Love you :( - 6 Stanzas

https://www.booksie.com/romance/poetry/jamesb/a-love-story-in-poems-part-1-marry-me

This isnt one poem but it is a trilogy. The third poem of the trilogy has to be my favourite all time poem! I would seriously recommend that you read these poems. They are marvelous!

 

Bubble-Gum - 6 Short Stanzas

https://www.booksie.com/poetry/poetry/jamesb/bubblegum

This is the first thing I ever published to Booksie! It isnt a poem I think is brilliant however it is a simple poem about Bubble-Gum. It is just a little humerous poem! It will take a few seconds to read.

 

Silly Haiku - Haiku length

https://www.booksie.com/poetry/poetry/jamesb/silly-haiku

This is just a really simple haiku which is pretty pointless. Not the best thing I have ever made but it took a few seconds to make up!

_________________________________________________________

Section 4 - My Novel

I am currently writing a novel. The novel is about a boy who is aged 14, he wakes up from a coma in a hospital. The hospital is seemingly empty. Once he gets out he realises that there are hardly any people and insteead there thousands of zombies! The novel is about his attempts to survive and his attemts to protect those around him. I would reccomend that you read it!

Zombie Novel - 4 chapters currently

Section 5 - Work I like

In this area here I will post a list of all the work that I like. When I find something that is good, I feel the need to let other people see it. So without further ado...

Awkward Moments in History - pDaisy - Series of short stories

https://www.booksie.com/humor/short_story/pdaisy/awkward-moments-in-religious-history-part-1

I think that this story/novel is amazing! It is extremely funny and I would recommend that anyone who isnt really religious reads this! This is just a link to the first part, you will have to go to pDaisy's profile to find the other parts.

The Olympics - Future Author - Poem

https://www.booksie.com/poetry/poetry/future_author/the-olmpics

I thought that this was a great poem that summed up the olympics nicely. Future Author is a great author with many amazing works on his/her profile. I would advise you to look at a few of them!

Chance. Strength. Progress. - Bolt Thrower - Poem

https://www.booksie.com/poetry/poetry/bolt_thrower/change-strength-progress/chapter/1

This is a poem that I like a lot! It is nice and inspirational and I would recommend that you read it if you feel down!
