Well, hello you!
I'm Mo and welcome to my corner of the internet.
I'm a 20-something Manchester-based writer (now ex-corrosion 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!).
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...
P.S. As of Jan 2019, a blog post will be published every Tuesday at 12pm GMT.
Disclaimer: I am often invited to review a selection of theatre performances at HOME (as of 2015), Oldham Coliseum Theatre (as of 2017) and the Royal Exchange Theatre (as of 2017), however, all views are my own. As of winter 2017, reviews published where press tickets have been provided will be identified with an asterisk (*).
In November 2018, my love of storytelling led me to I leave my job in corrosion engineering to work in the Marketing & Communications department at the Royal Exchange Theatre. But, as always, any views shared related to RET productions will be my own!
