My name is Emma, I am a 20 year old aspiring writer and language enthusiast in the beautiful North of England.
I like to call myself a writer, though I have found I often spend far too much time planning rather than launching into actually writing the story. Stephen King aptly sums this up in saying that “the scariest moment is always just before you start.”
This led to the decision to make a blog where I can keep track of pieces I have finished and make a prompt start on the next.
On here you will find a variety of tales, including the works of my imagination and occasional insights into my life.
I use writing as a way to make a change, by appealing to people through the beginning, middle and end of a story, hence my URL: wordsaretheweapon. I think people underestimate the power a good story can have on someone, and to what extent it can affect them throughout life.
My aim is to inspire and enlighten people who may happen to come across my writing, or just inject a little creativity into someone’s day.
