Intro ...

In 2010 I created a blog for posting my poetry. I created this blog under the alias of 'The Girl In The Corner' mainly because I was a little embarrassed and didn't think I was any good (well, I may still not be...) but also due to the fact my first post was a poem on how annoyed I was at my little sister. People have asked me - Why 'The Girl In The Corner'? - Well because at the time of starting my blog I shared a bedroom with my younger sister who took up most of the room whilst I felt shoved in the corner ... Later I got that bedroom all to myself (the biggest room!) after my older sister moved out to go to Uni, and then I put my desk in the corner of the bedroom where most of my belongings used to be. Being at Uni reaffirmed this idea of the desk in corner when we studied Stephen King's 'On Writing' he said: “It starts with this: put your desk in the corner, and every time you sit down there to write, remind yourself why it isn't in the middle of the room. Life isn't a support system for art. It's the other way around.” 

I haven't used my 'her-corner' blog since March of last year. This blog is my fresh start and I am now not only going to post poetry, but stories and bits of writing I have done in and out of seminars, as well as the occasional blog about myself/thoughts.
