Links, Cheesiness and Novels

I just thought that i should explain why I have such an eclectic range of links at the top of my page. The links have either amused me or affected/inspired me to become the person I am.  Yep it's cheesy, but it works.  (Early P.S.)  Special note on Remember Me; I'm saying the next bit at the risk of sounding like an obsessive freak, but here goes.  This movie had a REAL affect on me; I cried for about ninety minutes during the film, and was in a mega depressed mood for the rest of that day; even thinking about the film makes me cry.  

I'm sad I know that already; but I hope I haven't scared you away with my freakishness, so now on with the bulk of my post.

I say inspire because I am writing a novel at the moment.  Smack bang in the middle of GCSE's, I get this urge to write a story; not the best of timing, but when the inspiration comes you just have to go with it.  I'm still writing it at the moment, but I'm around over two-thirds of the way there (I started in February 2010 and I hope to be finished by January 2011,(probably just wishful thinking but hey, I'll try) just in time for my mocks.)  I haven't exactly decided on a title, all my previous ideas have just not gone right.  Basically the story is a modern coming-of-age story, which deals with issues of trust, insecurity, and relationships in life.  When an embittered student and a broken movie star to each other, how will they react?  Will they fuse?  Or will they form indifference to the other?

An extract will hopefully be coming soon
