About Kelly

Hello! I’m Kelly and I’d like to welcome you to my blog.

Hey look! It’s me.


I studied journalism at a small-ish college in South Africa where I graduated with a bachelor degree in 2015. I have since worked as a journalist, a copy editor and a freelance content marketer for various publications.

While I love journalism, my heart truly lies in the world of fiction and fantasy hence this blog.

I have previously started blogs on the free WordPress.com platform, even one under this name, but they have now been deleted and the content along with it.

Since I was a child, I have loved books and writing. At 8 years old, I wanted to become a librarian. 🙂

I think like most people, I also love watching TV. A few of my favourite shows are Game of Thrones, How to Get Away with Murder and Doctor Who. You’ll most probably find a review or rant on any of those some day.

My pet hates are crowds, coriander and clowns. (The C’s were not intentional.)

So why have I now started this blog?

My aim is to prove to both myself and others that it actually is possible to make money from a blog in South Africa. And not just a blog, but a blog about fiction, about poetry, books and movies.

What can you expect?

Film, book and TV reviews
Writing challenges
Original short stories, flash fiction and poetry
Resources for writers that I myself use

I invite you to join me on my journey of finding out whether I’m any good at this stuff or not.
