Well, hello you!

I'm Mo and welcome to my corner of the internet. 

I'm a 20-something Manchester-based writer / project engineer bewitched by custard creams, the colour yellow, stationery and, of course, stories. Here at WML you will find me sharing my musings on things I love and would keep in a locket with an undetectable extension charm (a quick shout out to all my HP fans - Whoop!).

ABOUT WML

Story-telling, whether it is done cinematically, live or in print, is something that greatly fascinates me still. I started this blog back in 2012 to initially share my (terribly cringey) fictional stories but instead found myself discussing the works of others - mostly films and television shows. These, after all, did inspire me to become a writer in the first place.

Now, you will find me chatting about art, books and theatre as well or even chatting to both local and international creatives about their work; and occasionally, I will share what I've been up to, places I have travelled - that sort of thing. And as for my fictional stories? Well... there's still time for them to make an appearance right?

It is my hope that WML will inspire all who stumble upon it to seek pockets of time to do what they love and make their life's story one to tell for generations no matter how mundane it may first appear. Now, excuse me while I go try and practice what I preach... 

 

You may be the only person left who believes in you, but it’s enough. It takes just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. Never give up.

Courage doesn’t always roar,
Sometimes it’s the quiet voice at the end
Of the day whispering: ‘I will try again tomorrow’.

You are not a drop in the ocean.
You are the entire ocean, in a drop.

Never trust your fears,
They don’t know your strengths.
