About The Writer

me

Miss Carol J Forrester

Carol Forrester is a twenty-two 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 as 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.

Contained within this site is a collection of her shorter stories, poetry, attempts at monthly challenges, sporadic journal updates and the online collection of Flash Fiction ‘Headquarters’ alongside fantastic artwork by friends and fellow bloggers. There’s even some samples of her own attempts at art to go alongside her writing.

        I like the simplicity of the layout. While most add a plethora of photos, I like that I’m not bombarded with them in efforts for the author to use up white space.

  1. If you are into history, my fantasy setting does evolve from alternate middle ages history. Thanks for visiting and the like. Hope to see you again.

  2. Your blog reminds me, beauty is in simplicity, loving the content you offering and this a beautiful introduction on your about! Looking forward to reading more of your work dear. Cheers!

  3. Hi Carol,

    I’ve shared one of your post about balanced on a blade’s edge on twitter and followed you as well. Is it possible I could contact you for a possible conversation about posting my content in your guest author page, that is if you still accept guest post. Thanks Carol, looking forward for your reply.

    • Thank you for the share. I’m actually about to start up a series of guest posts every Wednesday, beginning in October. The theme is the most difficult moment you’ve faced as a writer and how you moved past that.
      Would this be something you’re interested in?

  4. Hello Carol! What a lovely blog you have, with a real creative’s eye and spirit. I saw you subscribed to RozMorris.wordpress.com – thanks!
    I just wanted to let you know that that’s a static site and doesn’t post new content very often, so you might never hear a peep from it again. However, I have two other sites I post on every week, which might interest you:
    http://www.nailyournovel.wordpress.com – writing and publishing advice
    http://www.mymemoriesofafuturelife.com – my creative series The Undercover Soundtrack
    And if you’d like to hear about upcoming releases and special offers, there’s my newsletter
    http://tinyurl.com/rozmorrismailinglist
    If these links have infringed your spam policy, I won’t be offended if you delete this comment – I just couldn’t find another way to say hello in return. Thanks for your interest in my work and I hope you fulfil your ambition to complete a longform work. Best of everything

    • Hi Roz, I feel like I may already follow nail your novel. The name rings a bell and I do read the posts from time to time as they’re useful when working on Shadow Dawn. Thanks for dropping by to say hi, I do appreciate it. Please have a poke around if you’ve got time. I love hearing what people think of the site and the writing. 😊
