The description for this blog is ‘I have more books than friends’, and is probably the most accurate thought I’ve had about myself. I need two hands to count my friends, but would need my hands, feet and those of my dismembered enemies (do I sound like Patrick Bateman to you?) to count the number of books I own.
In the real world, my name is Izzy. I’m eighteen. Other than revelling in my self-loathing, my main ‘thing’ is going to the theatre. I don’t write about theatre that much because it makes me all gushy-gushy, which is not in-keeping with my natural brand of cynicism. Although any mention of Duncan Macmillan, Sarah Kane, Chekhov or Federico Garcia Lorca will send me spiralling into a whirlwind of literary hand-flapping.
I like yoga, making witty comments about British politicians, and baking bread. In the future, I’d like to be fluent in Spanish, actually get paid for my writing, and perhaps become the first female BAME Prime Minister. Dream big, kids.
If you’d like to read some of my creative writing, check out my work at Visual Verse here.
I also parody blog over at It’s a Genuine Opinion, which is just like this one, but with a more intense anger and not as many books. And Iago! My main G!
