Hi my name's Nick.
I'm fifteen years old and already have too many ideas for my brain, and not nearly enough willpower or self control to do anything with all of them.

I read incessantly to take my mind off life. I especially love urban fantasy and high fantasy, but I will read just about anything that is put in reaching distance.

I have too many favourite books to count, but they include Skulduggery Pleasant, HP (obviously), LOTR, Chaos Walking, The Mortal Instruments, and recently I started reading Mike Carey's series that starts with The Devil You Know (AMAZING).

I watch TV and I love comedy shows such as Bluestone 42, Sherlock (duh) Brooklyn 99, etc. However, I spend more time watching Youtube. I am subscribed to about fifty different channels, but my favourites are probably Jack Howard, Itsamemyleo, and KickThePJ.

My current favourite favourite album is TRXYE by Troye Sivan, I also like Dry the River, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Imagine Dragons and many more.

I am currently attempting to focus on writing new things for The Mask of Night, my main movella, but I currently have a massive writers block. I know what I want to write and I have a chapter idea, I just don't how to put it into words. So please go read and comment on that, but if you don't like then try out one of the multiple shorter stories I have started. I'll see you later guys, goodbye for now.

    mumbled "Back?"

    Hello? Sorry I've not been around, but I haven't done any writing in ages, I've been really demotivated about writing - but suddenly got an urge to write something. so I did - I don't know if I like them or they're any good, I just wanted to write something and try not to overthink it too much. I think that's my problem - I try to tackle huge projects that I don't have the time or motivation for, when I should maybe ease into it a bit more. So yeah.
    I just put two short random pieces up. They're both on my Death and all his friends movella if you want to check it out, one is literally a paragraph the other is some kind of poem? It's weird, a bit more jokey than I usually do so idk if I pulled it off
    I don't even really know why I posted them, I literally spent half an hour on the two, I barely drafted or anything, ah well
    So yeah
    Hopefully I'll be around more? I'm not going to promise anything. I don't even know who I'm promising to, I'm talking like I have a fanbase or something that I abandoned lmao.
    Bye

    Hey hey, welcome back. I'm Hugh...well if that's what you want to call me. and may I ask, are you a fan of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children? I've been dying to fine more fans. There's not many at all. But if you're not it's fine. I'm always delighted to find a male movellian.

    So about those short stories I promised... As some of you may have noticed I did in fact publish a short story before swiftly removing it, and the second one never appeared. The reason for that was that because they were written for coursework, the examiners will probably check them - and I really don't want to be disqualified for plagiarism. Sorry for not explaining this earlier but I just got back from a holiday in America with little to no internet. Hopefully I will be able to publish those stories soon, in the meantime I'm trying to work on some other inspiration - though by now I've learnt not to make promises.

    Last person I texted: Look at the previous answer. Do you honestly think I know how to find that out?
    Birthday: November 24th - shared with a serial killer, an infamous Italian-American mobster (Lucky Luciano), and an SS officer. So I'm in good company. Also the date of a fire that killed 112 factory workers, an earthquake that killed 4-5000 people, the day Kennedy's assassin was murdered on live TV, and someone parachuted into an airport in the middle of a storm and escaped with $200,000 ransom money.

    Favourite film: Kings of Summer or The Bourne Identity series
    Height: 5'10" - my current aim is to break the six foot barrier.
    Current mood: pretty good really - In school I'm doing creative writing in English and bugger all in PE and Computing - though in half an hour I have to look after a dozen seven year olds, so ask again in two hours.

    mumbled "Well, its been a while..."

    But a new short story is about to come out... I swear I'll stay on the site this time. It is entirely done, I just need to pick a death quote for it.
    What do you guys feel about;
    Richard II (c. 1595)
    Woe, destruction, ruin, and decay;
    The worst is death, and death will have his day.
    Act III, scene 2, line 102.

    We cannot hold mortality's strong hand.
    King John (1598), Act IV, scene 2, line 82.

    For he being dead, with him is beauty slain, and, beauty dead, black chaos comes again.
    Venus and Adonis (1593), line 1,019.

    And after that one I've another short story coming out, probably a similar length, because they're for my GCSE creative writing coursework.

    Or I could use "in mortis, nos vivere", which is Latin for "In death, we live".

    mumbled "New climbing shoes..."


    The picture's pretty bad so I'll say it here.
    "Dope lining. Reports of THC in lining can neither be confirmed nor denied."
    Yep, my climbing shoes are used to smuggle drugs.
