Welcome to Forever Distracted By Life:
This blog is the online portfolio and main sharing space from writer DS Coremans.
This blog started as a infrequently used writing space, most of the posts being of a personal nature. DS committed himself to the practice of writing, when he began to study writing full-time in 2018. This blog began to reshape itself as a space for sharing works of creative writing.
Now this blog is intended primarily as a portfolio of work. It will also remain a regular content blog, with works of poetry and fiction being shared with posts intended to create opportunities for other writers to collaboratively write together.
About the Blog Author:
Darren Syme (DS) Coremans was born in 1989, to Thilda and James Syme. His parents youngest son, but not by much his twin brother being born only 13.5 minutes earlier than him. DS also has an older brother who he has shared a flat with for many years.
As well as being a full-time student of writing, DS is a full-time carer and guardian of his twin-brother who he now supports in their parent’s house.
Prior to writing DS worked in both the fields of care and education. With a background in ASN support, DS found working in Support for Learning in schools to be a very rewarding career for many years.
