Is it wrong of me to think,

that you so alone, would grip so tight?

How is it that though your mask falls,

and you are so cold, that you would still take flight?

Hey Guys and Girls, it’s Katherine. This one has been quite a hard poem to post. Last week I was confirmed as a member of the Church of England. I have been on an alpha course and over the last couple of months, my faith has grown so enormously. I feel so loved and blessed by the family I have grown in the church and in the friendships that will stay with me all the days of my life. This poem is my ode to the love that I bare for my saviour Jesus Christ and how I can see him at work.

Hey, it’s Katherine. So I got a level 8 in my English language GCSE. I was so happy when my English teacher decided she wanted to recall my paper so that it could be used as an example piece. I got 36/40 for this question: 23/24 for content and 13/16 for grammar. I have changed a couple of grammatical errors that I spotted but other then that and a word I had to guess at because it was covered by the examiners marking, it is completely unchanged. I couldn’t find the same image that the exam board used but the image is a pretty close to the tone of the original image and to the tone of my writing. I am so proud of this piece of work and hope you enjoy or that this is helpful to you if you are studying for your GCSEs.

Hey guys, it’s Katherine! Today I wanted to talk about where to start with the whole writing thing and why people get so lost with it. It took me about a year of wanting to write a book to actually understand why when I started writing I didn’t find I was getting anywhere. I would start writing the first couple of pages and then come to a standstill.

I didn’t have a plan.

I didn’t know what was happening or how my characters would develop and most importantly I didn’t know how my story was going to end. When you start writing it is important to know all of these things. When teachers tell you to write and plan a story they often don’t fully explain themselves. I like using the SALES technique to being my planning with a premise.

Hey guys, it’s Katherine. I found this poem when I was looking through one of my old school books from when we covered gothic literature. It was fun to write and I think it is always nice to find bits of old writing you can relearn to love. Don’t look too deeply into this one… I might write like this from time to time but these generally aren’t thoughts that cross my mind on a regular basis.

Hey guys, it’s Katherine. This next poem is one of the first poems that I ever wrote and it was for one of my English projects in year 7. I think it was 5th November so my teacher lets the class do a creative writing piece about Guy Fawkes Night. I was 11 at the time so no judging. This is about a couple who fall in love during fireworks night. Quite short, but very sweet and innocent. Now on to the Poetry
