Hey, I’m Dan, 19.
I study English Lit at Exeter University in the UK. I’m currently on a year abroad in Mississauga, Canada, and for updates on that please visit http://mississauga-saga.tumblr.com/. This blog is for topical posts, personal opinions, comedy, etc.
I write plays, sketches, poems, short stories, reviews, blogs, stand-up comedy, tweets (@DanSquire007), screenplays, emails, and a whole lot of essays. There’s not much to say in the ‘About Me’ category, because I’m only just starting out, but lets just put it this way – I’m set on making a career out of comedy, despite the fact that I’m not very funny.
A few of the most influential people on my writing, both classic and contemporary, are Samuel Beckett, J.D. Salinger, Ernest Hemingway, Joseph Heller, Tim Minchin, Jack Kerouac, George Orwell, Charlie Brooker, Rowan Atkinson, Anton Chekhov, William Shakespeare, Dave Chappelle, Mickey Flanagan, Tennessee Williams, Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, Sean Lock, and Flight of the Conchords.
