Thank you for taking the time to read the blog post or story. Unless you didn’t read anything on the blog – maybe you just clicked on a catchy headline and got dragged here.
Either way, it’s fine. The important thing is you took the time to click on the about section – so let me tell you about myself:
My name is H.L Flynn. I’m a writer, obviously.
Well actually, by day I work in an office, but I don’t like to blog about that. By night, and in the odd morning I drag myself out of bed early, I am a writer.
I’ve been writing on and off since I was about eight years old, locked in a deadly battle with a malevolent inner voice which wants me to quit.
Self-doubt turned my creative spark into a poison which rotted away at me for a four year period where I barely wrote a single word.
I created Handsome Lies to be an antidote. I want to rebuild my atrophied writing skills, I want to learn more and be better than I ever was, I want to inspire and encourage like-minded people, I want a platform to share my work. Most important of all; I don’t want to quit again.
I update the site every Friday with new content; this will include short stories, serials, writing exercises, and blog posts with whatever’s on my writer’s mind.
This is my tale, and I cordially invite you to pull up a chair and enjoy the show. You can keep track of what I’m up to by following me on Twitter @HandsomeLies
