I’m currently working on two fiction pieces right now: Like Pigs, which comments on several ethical and societal issues, such as animal meat consumption, over-population, and what (if anything) makes us better or worse, as a species, than the rest of nature. I realise this is going to be a massive piece of work, and a lot to work through in theory. I’m primarily writing this story for my Creative Writing MA, but I plan to publish this after my course has finished as well.
The other piece I’m working on is called Fed to the Lyons, which is an exploration of childhood, escapism and mental health. This is also for my MA, and like Like Pigs, I do plan to publish this later down the road as well.
Finding the time to work on my creative pursuits has proven difficult in recent weeks, and my mental health has certainly suffered as a result. Juggling a full time job and personal creative work is much more difficult than I ever remember it being in the past. Perhaps this is because I take my creative writing a lot more seriously nowadays.
In other news, I have created some new clothing designs, which you can find in my store!
