Miss Carol J Forrester

Born in Shropshire, England, Miss Forrester is currently studying History at Bath Spa University.

With poems published in ‘Here and Now’ by United Press, ‘Express Yourself’ by Young Writers and a self-published collection titled ‘Before The Words Run Out’, poetry was always her first passion. However, with plans for a collection of short stories to be published within the next few months and numerous novels currently at the half-way stage; she is no stranger to prose.

What is Headquarters?

Well I'm glad you asked little person I just made up.

Headquarters is one of my current projects, a collection of flash fictions that all link in together to create an overall story.

Does that not create world building issues?

Yes. Yes it does. I'm just trying to bumble my way through them and smile as readers point them out to me.

Are you not already snowed under with work?

Once again, yes, yes I am. But anyone who knows me, knows that will do nothing to prevent me from trying to add one more thing to the 'to do' list.

Are you going to annoy readers by removing chapters and completely changing them and therefore the plotline?

No. For once. If you decide to read the current segments up in my gallery then remember they are not designed to be polished, fully thought out story-lines. I'm treating them as a writing exercise to hone my character development and writing skills. [For fun should also be included in that sentence.]

So it's all one big story then?

Sort of. I've now split Headquarters into two individual story-lines. 'Central Command' which is set somewhere in the middle of Europe and 'Safe Haven' which is set in the Midland, England. Granted this is quite a bit in the future after a war has completely reshaped all the previously organised territories.

Feel free to pop over to the gallery and have a read.

:) Just wanted to ask if I could take a peek at your expansion of your expansion of "dirt beneath the cobbles".

I'm sorry if I have been rude or mean in any way towards you, by the way :forgiveme:

No you've not been rude, sorry I haven't got back to you, I have my history exam tomorrow and alongside family dramas I got swept up. My email is if you email me with yours I'll send you what I have. It's bitty, and split into two versions heading in different directions. 
shehrozeameen Featured By Owner May 23, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
(nodding) I sent you the email.

:) And stay blessed. You're a wonderful writer.

Hey there,

Sorry I've been a bit absent, I've got my end of year exam on Friday so I'm busy preparing for that. Once that is out of the way I'll be able to turn my attentions to the group.
