A soon-to-be-graduating student of creative writing and media, I write because I want to convince the world that life shouldn’t be taken too seriously. If you’re stressing about a big presentation, or being made redundant, or where to dispose of your late wife’s dead body after you accidentally pushed her off the roof, take a step back and think about the superficiality of it all. Despite what the news and naysayers say, the world isn’t a bad place. It’s full of great kindness, love, smiles, and oh god just look a puppy in the eye already.
Winner of the Garland Keever Memorial Award for Humorous Writing in 2011, I’m hoping, like all writers, to one day become world-famous, absurdly wealthy, and have an entire harem of gorgeous brunettes at my side at all times. But that won’t happen, so I’ll settle for a basement flat in London, a 50-hour-a-week minimum wage job, a masterful understanding of how to stretch £7.50 into a week’s worth of food, and a picture of a beautiful girl I once thought I had a shot with on my bedside table.
Whichever I end up with I’ll enjoy the journey, so long as I can continue writing and making you anonymous fuckers smile from time to time.
