Hi! I’m Ellie. I’m an 18 year old studying drama at Exeter university. I’m ‘perky’, according to some (‘insane’ according to others, but let’s not get bogged down with other people).
My biggest passion is drama, or- as my cousin Jo so eloquently puts it- a desire to “don a wig and represent a tree through interpretive dance” (thanks, Jo). I would love to be an actress someday, which, I know, keep dreaming. Writing is the only other thing I’m semi-decent at, but only two topics: a) fiction, and b) myself (I’m just a little bit of a narcissist. It’s endearing. I hope).
I really love writing and generally documenting my life (diaries, vlogs, photography) so I started this with the intention of doing some actual honest non-fiction writing, even if it is exclusively my take on things. I can’t promise any kind of regular update schedule, because I am terrible at time management and A levels are kind of super important to me right now.
So what will I write about? Still not sure. From where I’m standing (or more accurately, sitting) now, I’m thinking a mixture of reviews of theatre, film and television, life anecdotes, plus occasional keyboard tirades if I’m feeling particularly angry about politics/sexism, etc. Please bear with me, as my current style of writing is (hopefully please god) going to improve over the course of the next year or so, and until then I will endeavour to keep keyboard-flailing to a minimum (I’m doing well now, right?).
Here are some good posts to check out if you wanna get a clearer idea of what I’m like and what sort of content this blog has to offer:
- an explanation for the blog name
- a collection of my earliest poetry
- #RedInstead: Why I’m Saying No to Autism Speaks
