Hello lovely Internet people! My name is Picto, well kind of it’s more of an alias really but it will do for now. I hail from the grim north where meat pie for breakfast is, if not normal, not entirely a thing to be scared of and the gravy flows freely.
I’ve been writing for my own entertainment for as long as I can remember but only recently started to share my… gift is a strong word, umm… vaguely entertaining nonsense with a wider audience. Last year I wrote all of my good friends a birthday short-story and did a couple of small but perfectly formed plays for 14/48 Leicester. I also have a bunch of stories, scripts and miscellaneous odds and sods I’d like to spend more time on if I wasn’t working so darn much.
I’ll read anything that someone can stick under my nose so my influences are many and varied. I’m currently enjoying the works of Orson Scott Card, Cory Doctorow and Chuck Palahniuk but have dabbled in Mary Shelley, John Grisham and Joseph Heller in the not so distant past.
So, yeah, I’m excited to get started and I hope you find something to like in my odd rambles…
