I’ve loved reading almost as long as I can remember. Books have always been such an important part of my life, and after reading so much for so long it seemed only natural that I should create as well as consume.
I tried to write as a kid, but found my stories were to out of control and nonsensical. It wasn’t until I finished high school that I revisited fiction writing and realised how much I enjoyed it. In 2013 I began writing some blogs for a Public Relations company, Blackie McDonald, and started to get a taste for non-fiction writing. That is how The Musings of a Blackie came to be.
In the four years that I have run this blog it has morphed from a showcase of my creative writing, to a collection of feminist and opinion blogs and book reviews, allowing me to vent all my confusing thoughts about life, society and everything else in-between (and giving me a very good excuse to buy as many books I want with the claim that I will review them later).
My story The Valley was published in the Macquaire University magazine, The Quarry. Check it out here!
