Elementaryvwatson is written by thirty-something Vic, a book-worm, writer who loves all things cultural and arty. Vic thinks of herself as Bridget Jones only taller, chunkier and more accident-prone.
Vic achieved a B.A (Hons) in Media, Communication and Cultural Studies from Newcastle University in 2008. She then graduated with a Masters (with Commendation) in Creative Writing in 2010 from Northumbria University. She is also has a PGCE in Post Compulsory Education and Training.
Vic’s flash fiction ‘John: Home Tomorrow’ was featured in 6th Element’s ‘Home Tomorrow’ anthology. In February 2012, Victoria released a collection of her short stories entitled ‘Letting Go’. Vic’s short story ‘The Piano’ won North Tyneside Council’s Story Tyne 2012 competition. Her debut novel ‘Fix Me Up’ remains a work in progress.
As well as this blog, Vic is also a regular contributor on other blogs. She has previously written articles for True Faith (Newcastle United fanzine), Newcastle’s Evening Chronicle (ncjMedia), The Journal (ncjMedia) and Closer Magazine (Bauer Media). She has also reviewed for Waterstones Online and Amazon.
Vic can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads.
Victoria currently runs two weekly writing groups. She is available for Creative Writing lessons, reading groups, copyediting and proofreading. She is also available to blog about events. You can find more information about her professional services at her website.
lol, I have lots of ideas about crafty stuff, and arty stuff, and occasionally writey stuff, but it all seems to get lost somewhere between my head and my scissors, gluestick, pencil or pen-nib! 😉
hey, i’d love to send you a copy of smoke, as a kind of thanks if you will. so if i could have an email from you to firstname.lastname@example.org, i could send it over.
Hi Vic, Cece here.
I love your blog, consider me your new follower.
Fab, thank you CeCe 🙂
Very nice webpage! Love your style! You’re going to do great with this!!!
Hey if you could see the bag of projects down beside my chair you would laugh… Not to mention all my WIP on the old pc…xx
Love the Bridget comment but only smarter funnier and cooler. 🙂
That is so kind of your Caroline, thank you! x
Hey Vic it’s wilsollllll. I have just finished reading The Servants by M. M. Smith. Although it may not be to your taste as it is a fantasy novel, but it is a remarkable book dealing the issues of an 11 year old boy whose parents have split up. He has been torn away from his father and all that is familiar, to live with his mother and stepfather in a place with memories for his original family. It is a great read even for those that don’t read the fantasy genre, as it deals with a lot of emotions. If you get a chance give it a go xx
I will add it to my TBR list which is currently sitting at over 300 books!
I have heard about a Victoria Watson who sells short stories on Amazon at 99c each, and I am curious to know more about these stories and where I can find them, if you are indeed this same Victoria Watson. Thank you.
I have a collection of short stories available on Amazon for $1.58. http://www.amazon.com/Letting-Go-ebook/dp/B007A6VAVA/ref=sr_1_17?ie=UTF8&qid=1342796898&sr=8-17&keywords=letting+go
