I began writing at the age of about twelve, a few years before I began this blog in late 2009 (my first post was ‘you can either be my lovely or my fishy’). Even though a few years ago, I threw away the majority of the lyrics I had written at that time, I kept the poems and the short stories. This category will be dedicated to them. I only began dating my pieces toward the end, so the dates on most of these posts will be wrong, but perhaps they will be in the right year. Please be forgiving, these pieces were all written between the ages of twelve and sixteen/seventeen and I am fully aware that the quality is lacking in some of them and that the angst is over the top.
