I thought after my post on internet writing a few hours ago that I would like to expand my blog’s audience. So, I’m just letting you all know that I’ve created a Tumblr blog, and a Twitter account to go alongside my WordPress. This won’t affect my daily posts as each site will publish the same content; if you would like to see the new page the links are below, feel free to like, follow, and share til your heart’s content. Be warned, they aren’t much to look at yet.



Thank you for reading.


The End Of The Easter Challenge

So Easter is done, and so is my Easter Challenge. To be honest, I’m quite sad, I enjoyed writing so many pieces and if I hadn’t set myself the challenge, some of them may never have been written.

To celebrate the fact that I successfully completed the challenge, I’ve changed my blog around a little. Most noticeably, I have introduced a new theme which I think improves the aesthetics of the home page, it makes it a lot neater (minimalism at its finest).

Also, I have added a ‘Best Bits‘ page. On this page you will find a frequently updated page of favourites, both mine and my readers. Make sure you take a look and let me know what you think, I would also welcome suggestions as to which of my posts you would like to see included.

So, thank you for reading and I hope you come back for my scheduled piece of prose later on.

Easter Challenge

Over Easter I am going to have a lot of free time, and I mean a lot. This is due to the fact that I’ve agreed to work in an ice cream van (parked outside B&Q) from Thursday to Monday this week; eight hour shifts each day…

Still, customers won’t be a constant, so I’ve decided to write two short pieces of creative writing on top of any other posts in my breaks. This means three pieces of writing on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday!

Make sure to let me know what you think of them.

Change of Schedule

Just a quick note to say that I want to make my blog more focused on creative writing, so I have combined the literature and philosophy segments (as any philosophy I comment upon will probably have deep roots within literature). I have also taken out the Sunday polls in favour of an extra writing day; I don’t think many people would have voted so it wouldn’t have been worth it, however if you want to send me writing prompts for later weeks comment on this, or any other post and I will check them out. If I decide to use your prompts I will of course mention your name/blog in my post and give you some credit.  If you’re interested, the new schedule is in my ‘About’ page, I will be posting some poetry in about two minutes so keep an eye out for it.

Greetings World

Hello everyone, welcome to The Literate Worm blog site. Essentially this blog is about Literature, but not just reading it (well it is for you), writing it as well! I will be posting something new every day, and each day will link to a certain category, as shown below:

Monday – Review

Tuesday – Prose

Wednesday – Literature

Thursday – Philosophy

Friday – Literature

Saturday – Poetry

Sunday – Polls on what to do next

I hope you are looking forward to reading my work as much as I am to writing it. Also, look out for links to new blogs as I create them, I’m planning on writing a episodic or non-linear narrative for example,  which I will set up on a new blog some time in the future so that it doesn’t ruin my beautifully planned schedule (that I threw together only moments ago).

So anyway, have a good time reading what I have to say, if you like it then comment or ‘like’ the post, and if you don’t like it then comment and tell me why. Either way I would appreciate as much feedback as possible. Thank you for your time.

See you tomorrow.
