Main Character… not so much

by Antonia Brennan

by Antonia Brennan

It must have been around three years ago that I started writing ‘The Terrifying Life Of Henry Granger’ and since then I’ve noticed a few things about the story. Things such as Henry Granger not actually playing much of a role in the story. Really he is rather useless. Most of the time he was either unconscious of trapped in a mirror, so why was I even keeping him around? Oh yes, if I got rid of him then I would have to change the title of the book and I suck a titles.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.


  1. Have you been working on the book for three years or have you stopped writing? Trapped in a mirror… sounds interesting!

    • I’ve been working on the book on and off. I’m back to really trying to get it finished this month since I want to have something substantial to return to after Camp Nanowrimo where I’m going to try and complete a draft for another story I’ve been working on for about eight years.
