Please let me introduce myself

Hi! I’m Nicki!

Thanks for coming to visit little old me and my website. I hope you are enjoying it so far.

Throughout my entire history of school reports every teacher wrote the same sentence from primary school all the way through to A level High school “If she got her head out the clouds and applied herself she would do much better”. I am not academic. I am not sporty. I still don’t know all of my times tables off by heart but I have the best imagination and that is far more interesting than knowing what 7 x 7 is. I constantly performed when I was a kid. I bored my parents by bombarding them with short stories and poems, dance shows and dramatic readings, eager to please them. I went dancing class and drama class. I performed in dance shows and Am Drams (main jitterbug in Wizard of Oz, how fancy!) When I went to Study a Drama degree it was then I realised that acting – which is what I thought I wanted to do – was not the one. Our very first performance I was the only female to write their own monologue and when I performed it, I had never felt so alive. Afterwards the feedback from the audience gave me all the feels knowing that they had been moved in some way by words and ideas from my own head and I have wanted to write ever since. Then babies came along and with it the need to work to earn the money so writing has not been a priority in my life. I have been blogging on and off for a few years now but over the last year I wrote a few that got some attention. The subject matters were relatable and I wrote them without much thought to structure and being “proper English lit”. It just flowed out and that is when it works. I’m not the best writer in the world but I give a shit. I will only write about stuff that genuinely interests me. I hope that you like the crap that I come out with. If there is anything you want to chat about or just have a little say then hit me up down below. Good vibes only though, we all need to be more kind xx
