About

Hi, I am Ben Ellis. I am an imposter in the worlds of novel writing and screenwriting.

Why is one of those two words yet the other is only one word?

I don’t know because I am an imposter.

Prepare yourself. What follows is a moody, black and white author photo.

“Moody! That’s right…no, no, no too aggressive. Moody!”

I live in Worthing, West Sussex, UK with my wife, son and step-son. I work in the glamorous world of ‘factory work’. I run, swim and play football and tennis to neutralise the chocolate and junk food.

I have to work hard to avoid and neglect the above to write, for little enjoyment and no money.

I used to hate homework and now I have self-imposed homework everyday, set by myself with no end in sight. Not just poorly graded but out-rightly ignored.

It’s a Sisyphean task.

(I don’t know what that means).

Of course, I do. How would I know to use it in the correct context if I didn’t know what it meant?

I’m willing to lie to get a half-arsed smirk.

(Plus, I had to search the phrase on Google to see how to spell it correctly.)

Does that make me a liar or a writer?

(Am I using these brackets in the correct way?)

I am an imposter.
