The Writerri small bird

I've tried time and time again to write this in the 3rd person as the modern day hipster blogger tends to do so: "When Terri isn't putting the world to rights on her Acer laptop, she's cooking a Gino D'acampo recipe while pretending to know the difference between a Merlot and a Cabernet. In her spare time she watches too much TV and is a self-confessed crazy dog lady." But I feel like a bit of a twat doing that. So I'll be near enough the only blogger in the world who is writing her description in the 1st person narrative (that old chestnut).

My name is Terri Ferguson, and I'm a self-employed beautician who waxes by day, and (sporadically) writes by night. I tend not to use big, fancy words as I, for one, will more than likely not understand them. Despite arguing my C in higher English to the death, I now feel that it was probably (entirely) just. If you hadn't noticed, I also take great delight in pointing out my weaknesses: humility is the most liberating and awesome way to live life. Also, it stops people from pointing them out before I do.

The style I write in is fairly down-to-earth and easy to follow. Although in saying this, I once caused a bit of an uproar from a series of articles I wrote in 2013 (the 'toxin' series, if you fancying a bit of controversy!) I love to write about beauty, well-being, and more recently, a sort of 'how to get through life unscathed' series of articles. I've unashamedly listed these in 'motivational'. I've been writing for 5 years for the Western Isle magazine Events, and am still half expecting to be called out on the fact that I am blagging my way through and should stick to the day job; although the feedback I get is always positive (mums say the nicest things!).

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to get in touch (unless you are spam). Also, please do not feel free to copy my work, as I will find you. And I will kill you.

I'm obviously kidding.

Kind of.
