My name is Nick Hight. I'm a teenage writer, dreamer and blogger, and I live in Christchurch, New Zealand. I've always loved stories. Always. I've been telling them since before I could even read or write. And I've always dreamed of one day becoming a published author. Always.
In my earlier years, I remember telling other peoples' stories - like that time I recreated Peter Pan with fridge magnets, and that time I wrote a "novel" of the same story, which was an impressive four pages long. But as I got older, I began to tell my own stories. Correction: I would begin to tell my own stories. I would have an idea, then I would write a page, and then that word document would never see the light of day again.
But when I hit high school in 2009, I got serious. I researched writing, the publishing industry, other writers, and so very much more. I started on a first (terrible) novel. It took me a long time to realise that it was terrible, but it was all part of the learning process. After that, in 2010, I started a new novel - and I've been going hard out on that ever since. And I've been dreaming ever since.
I have some wild dreams: writing a novel, signing a book deal, and ultimately writing full-time and becoming a bestselling author. At first, these dreams of mine many seem impossible, but they're not. They are difficult, of course, but with a lot of hard work, perseverance, and a fiery passion for writing - otherwise known as writing fire - I know that I will be able to achieve them.
