Hello people of the world,

My name is Douglas William Thurstan Smith. I am 28 years old and now living in Port Macquarie with my beautiful partner.

I have lived in the Gold Coast and in Wollongong but home will always be Port Macquarie.

I lived on the Gold Coast for a year from 19-20 years of age and then the last 7 years in Wollongong.

I have a Bachelor of Arts – Creative Writing/ Sociology/ Philosophy, which I graduated 2017.

Fantasy is my main genre to write. I also write fiction and poetry.

I created this blog to build an online audience for my creative writing. I have had a blog for my sporting career but this is strictly academic.

All photos will be either taken by me or of me, I will give recognition. Hopefully you enjoy this new journey as much as I do.

Douglas. W.T. Smith.

  1. Hi Douglas, I aspire to being a writer and am enjoying the journey! I haven’t taken any courses or studies in writing but I have read a lot, and probably learned a lot from it. I created an author blog for myself this year, partly to ‘get my books out there’, but just as much to share writing thoughts and experiences. I look forward to following you! 🙂

      • Thanks Douglas, and thanks also for the follow. I’ll look forward to your posts here. I also do a lot of nature photography and use bits of it for illustrations. 🙂

  2. Thank you for following me. I was going to say our writing genres seem to differ quite a bit but then I thought, hey, poetry could be fantasy and vice versa. So, here’s to both our journeys! 🙂

    • They are different but I still write a lot of poetry, it makes me think a certain moment and expand on that in a literal way.
      It’s all still a form of creative writing at the end of the day too 😃
      Here’s to both of our journeys! ✌️

  3. Hey! Thank you for the like and the follow! I’m a creative writer too (and, as you might guess from the post, I write mostly fantasy, though I’ve been branching out into poetry that isn’t explicitly speculative); I wish you the best 🙂

    • Hello! Thank you as well, I believe poetry and fantasy intertwine at different stages, depending on the protagonist 😃
      Good luck to you too, and I’ll see you out there on the battlefield of publication ✌️😃

  4. Hi Douglas, many thanks for the follow on our Bikers’ Guide to the Dordogne’ 🙂 We don’t update it that much, it’s really just to offer a free tour-guide service to any visiting bikers!
