What’s on the Horizon

25 Aug

 

Hello, all. Things have been a little quiet, empty and forlorn over here since I moved most of my reviews over to my other blog. I had intended to use this blog for the more free and relaxed life orientated posts. However, it turns out not a lot actually happens in my life *insert pity here*.

Seriously though, what is happening at the moment? This summer I finished studying my penultimate course towards my Open University degree. World U214 Worlds of English. Not my favourite course and there were others I would have preferred to take but circumstances dictated. It’s over and done with ad I’m looking toward my next course, my final module for my Humanities (Creative Writing pathway) BA.

The last course is one I’m quite excited about: A330 Myth in the Greek and Roman Worlds.

My Set Texts for A330 Myth in the Greek and Roman Worlds

Excuse the out of focus shot. I took it in poor light on my mobile.

I have always loved mythology so this is one I’ve been looking forward to. I confess, though, that I am really nervous about getting the grade of pass that I want. If I don’t get the grade of pass I want I wont get the degree classification I want. Unfortunately, there have been a couple of my courses, and one in particular, that didn’t go brilliantly. so I have to do that bit better this time to make up for it. These are goals I’ve set myself, for my own sense of achievement, but as we all know we can be our own harshest critics.

The course doesn’t start until 1st October but they are sending the course material in about 2 weeks time. You know, because they like to give you plenty of time to get into a really good panic before the course begins ;). It’s actually quite handy because you can get a head start on the reading.

 

What else is new? Well, the horror anthology project I am part of has just gone on sale for pre-orders of the hardback. I’m also due to have a story featured early in the new season of The Wicked Library. (In September I think.)

In November I’m also making my debut in The Lift podcast. My story is episode 1 of season 2, the first one after the Halloween special. For those who don’t know The Lift is a podcast about a strange building that calls to people who need to make a choice. Inside they are met by Victoria a little Victorian girl with a music box who guides them on their journey in her lift.

So, all in all, it’s shaping up to be an active autumn/winter season. 🙂
