Coming soon… A screenplay called What’s Left Behind. The cover was designed and made by me for once, using a machine-made print and a photograph I took in the graveyard layered over each other.
Synopsis: Cathy Roberts is sixteen years old and coming up to her exams at school. Nothing about her is typical, and her family are constantly being surprised, astounded — and often embarrassed — by the vigour at which she throws herself at Gothic Lolita lifestyle. From the frilly black clothes, melancholy music, awe-inspiring Japanese magazines filled to the brim with delicate gothy concoctions, the desire to make everything beautiful with a touch of dread, and the eleventh time re-watching Bela Lugosi in Dracula, Cathy is determined to live her dreams.
Despite her confidence standing out from the crowds and asserting herself to her mother and sister, Sam, there is a delicate spot in her heart that twinges with every stare, every sarcastic remark… What will happen when tensions in her family reach new heights, and Cathy decides to take fate into her own hands and run away to a place that nobody would dare call their home? What’s left behind when everything in a young girl’s life turns to ashes?
Currently I haven’t written much since I last blogged due to college being busy and having little energy, but I hope to get a bit done soon.
