I am an 18 year old full time student and occasional bookworm who has finally decided to put pen to paper (well literally fingers to keyboard) with my musings on the world of literature and theatre. Therefore, I plan to write about some of the books that I read and theatre that I watch in the hope that I'll be able to inspire.
Ever since a young age I have been enthralled with literature and its ability to transport me to a completely different land. In fact, one of my earliest memories is of reading with my granny wearing plastic glasses because I thought that they helped you to understand the various squiggles on the page - ironically now I do have proper glasses and I've discovered that they really do help!
I also love the theatre and the fleeting glimpse of the ideal that it provides. I never fail to be impressed when I visit the theatre and always leave feeling in awe of the talented actors and actresses. When I was younger I wanted to be an actress like my heroine, Audrey Hepburn, and feature in the West End but I honestly don't think that I would have the nerve to bear my soul to an audience every night; I feel true admiration for all actors who have the ability to create theatrical magic.
