I am 24 years old, and am aiming to become an author. I studied Creative Writing and Journalism at De Montfort University, Leicester, and have been keeping a blog since 2013. I have Asperger's Syndrome, a mild form of autism, and try to alternate between blogging about autism issues and other topics of interest.Locked Pro Plan feature
My duties include taking sales, updating the bestseller list, answering phone calls, creating and processing customer orders, pricing and putting away stock, giving prices to second hand books, making sure all books are placed in alphabetical order, dusting, vacuuming, and counting the money at the end of the day. This has given me lots of experience at working with a till and helping members of the public, e.g. customer enquiries, recommending products, etc.
My course covered skills such as writing news stories, writing feature articles, interviews, working in a group to create a magazine, short stories and prose, poetry, specialist fiction, and novel writing. Alongside my uni work, I was also a regular contributor to the student newspaper (now a magazine) and the accompanying website.
