Writer’s Responsibility | Berg’s Book Club

This isn’t a book review as such, in truth, it’s an essay I wrote for coursework but there are elements of it that read like a book review. So I have decided to post it here as part of Berg’s Book Club with some edits. This essay/book review talks about the writer’s responsibility when representing disabled characters. The books mentioned have been reviewed by me previously. They are Good Kings […]

Responsible Writing

One of my modules this semester is looking at whether an author is responsible for what they write and to what degree. It has been interesting so far, we have been looking at authors like Oscar Wilde who believe that writing is just beautiful, Faulkner who believed it was personal and universal and Orwell who believed it was political. This week, we looked at Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Look Who’s Back and The […]

I’m currently on page six and have found lots of books on kindle unlimited about homemade candle making but none on the 1800s candle making, so I’ve mixed the information from the book I […]

The Brief History of Candle-Making | Berg’s Book Club

Ok, this is a hard book to review because it’s very short. I mean, it ends on the kindle location, 291. I don’t know what that converts to page-wise but as the average seems to be a few thousand kindle locations for a 300page book, it takes a few minutes to read. I tell you why I read this book, I’m writing a screenplay set in the industrial revolution, the protagonist’s […]

The Arch-Enemy returns.

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I did some coursework, packed my stuff and went to the Christmas Party. My dad and I then travelled to my home in Birmingham. I wake up this morning, confronted by my arch-enemy: Snow. I’m grateful that my dad suggested that I came home last night and not on Saturday, which was the original plan because now I am safe indoors away from my […]

Christmas Party!!!

It’s nearly Christmas and my uni breaks up next week, every year they throw a Christmas party… with Sock Puppets. I’m really excited to see what they have in store for us this year! Sock puppets! I know, random right? During my first year, it was a sock-puppet version of Little Red Riding Hood. It was hilarious. Not to mention, our lecturers were looking as if they were enjoying it […]
