An Introduction of Sorts

I find myself attempting to introduce myself with no idea where to start. I think I should start really, at the beginning, as all good novels do. Or some I suppose begin at the end, but that wouldn’t make much sense here.

I’m nineteen, and I’m from Hampshire, England. I study English Literature (BA Honours) at the University of Exeter, with a vague hope that I will one day graduate and find myself ensconced in a nice flat, in gainful employment. In our current economic climate however, I’m told it’s a near impossible dream. And so what did I do, in response to this new piece of information? I launched a business, with the stubbornness of a child, thinking “well, if they won’t employ me, then I’ll just employ myself!” My business is known as Sarah Alice Enterprisesand I dabble alongside that in short story writing, journalism, and poetry. I also have an online magazine which is currently in the process of construction, known as  Live Critique, which is a student-led concept, and seeks to help students publicize themselves.

I’m still trying to establish what I want to be when I grow up. For now though, I’m happy enough to wade through this labyrinth of student life, going out dressed in tinfoil, and eating dinner out of plastic jugs, trying to do something useful with myself.

  4. Hey there,
    Nice introduction and good luck pursuing your career in publishing! I too graduated with a BA degree in English and love to write. I looked into graduate school for publishing, but it seems I strayed away from the path with my passion for the outdoors.
    Keep up with the blog as best you can though. If nothing more, it provides a constant creative outlet to keep you writing, and the only way to continue to grow as a writer is to actually write. Good luck with everything!
    Nate
