Welcome To The Future!

That’s what a friend just told me as today I’ve taken the plunge and signed up with Twitter.

So now I can tell everyone about when I go to buy carrots or whatever else fits into the 140 characters – generally writing related, no carrots to see here 🙂

I did find out that there is another Natalie Westgate though and she had already taken the username, which threw me to start with.  Natalie_Westgate would have been a nice alternative, but Twitter only allows 15 characters for names and guess how many characters NatalieWestgate is?  You guessed it, 15.  So no underscore for me :/  But after many tries I found something that worked!  So, if you want to follow me or tweet me (or do other things that I’m unfamiliar with on Twitter!) then you can find me at @N_Westgate 🙂  I’ll update the “follow” icons on this site to add one for Twitter after I’ve got used to tweeting!

Wish me luck.


I feel as though this should be a welcome post.  I definitely want to welcome people to my blog! 🙂  But other than actually saying “welcome!”, I’m not really sure what to put here.

Take a look around the site, check out the “About” section to learn a little bit about me 🙂 and later I’ll be adding a section with samples of my work and probably other goodies too.

I write what used to all be lumped under the Horror genre, even if it wasn’t horrific, but now is split into Urban Fantasy, Dark Fantasy, Supernatural Fiction, Paranormal Romance…  I think a specific genre for my work will become apparent after I’ve finished the novel I’m working on.  But until that time, I cross a blurry line between Dark Fantasy, Urban Fantasy (that’s a blurry line in itself!) and Supernatural Fiction.

Anyway, make yourself at home!  I’ll be settling into the site properly in a few weeks and will then post regularly about my writing and progressing to publication.
