Mary Shelley: How The Queen of Goth Lived a Dark Fairy Tale

Mary Shelly lived a life that would be considered radical, and unstable now. I’ve read a few things on how Frankenstein came to be, and I am always interested in new information about that summer, and Shelly’s life in general.
I have been reading and I’m very much enjoying Frankenstein. It’s so much different than the film adaptions I’ve seen, and all the details and such in the actual novel are really holding my attention.

The Raven Report

Frankenstein-History-Gothic-Shelley

In the summer of 1816, 19-year-old Mary Godwin—soon to be Mary Shelley—conceived the tale that would become the biggest Gothic masterpiece of all time, Frankenstein.The wildly dark book shocked and titillated the literary world when it was first published in 1818, but the most surprising element was how Mary’s life itself played out like a dark fairy tale. She was a fiercely unconventional woman who suffered many heartbreaks and tragedies, lived several years in an untraditional relationship, drifted from place to place, and generally rebelled against the world she saw as limited and sexist.

Post: An explanation. Sort of.

My my… I haven’t posted much anything here in quite a while, have I?
Hopefully this will change, but I think I ought to give a few reasons/excuses to why I haven’t made a single post since July of last year… The first being, I literally haven’t been working on anything. Not a thing regarding writing my book, or other creative projects. I’ve had a buttload of ideas, and I’m planning on working on a quite a few new projects, but I haven’t started on much anything.
I have been doing a lot of school, or at least trying to make sure I do enough. I started pretty late this year, and will have to continue to do work on pretty much all my subjects throughout the summer. So I haven’t had much time, I guess. I could have made time, and I should have. But I didn’t. I didn’t even end up doing many of the things I wanted to do this school year. Which were to start taking Ballet lessons in the first semester, and start Piano lessons, and a driving instruction course in the second. All of which didn’t happen.
So yeah… This school year hasn’t been what I wanted. But I know there is still time to do other things. This year has really just begun after all. And I still have a lot things I can do. Like working on my novel, improving in art, and mailing the darned package of gifts I was sending to my friend.

I do have a real post planned. I was working on it, and had almost finished, when it got deleted or the page crashed or something. So I lost the whole thing.
It was (and is) going to be about the car my main protagonist drives for much of The Timeless/Rook and Raven. Which, oddly enough is a fairly relevant detail.

So I do plan on writing, this next year. School or no school. It sucked losing all that motivation around the beginning of the second semester, but I’m going keep going. I’m going to work hard on things again. And I really need to while I can!

And I really need to spend more time working on this blog, consarnit!

Post: One

Hello good readers. This being my first blog post, let me introduce myself. I am Saoirse Moore. And this is my writing blog.

Here, I will be posting chapters of stories i’m working on, possibly art in the future, and simply updates on what’s going on.

Part of the reason why I’m posting this is because I want at least one post until I get get the writing program I need. The the chapters of The Welsh Entity I do have need to be edited. And I have been to busy with a move to edit them thoroughly.

I will also edit the page explaining the plot of the story, considering I am not happy with it.

I’m going to school very soon, but i’m almost moved completely in my new house.

This is post is actually getting quite rambly. So I bid you goodbye.
