Hi there :)

I'm Lorelle Shorten, an aspiring writer from Ireland. I've been writing since a very young age, but started writing my first novel when I was fifteen. More recently, because I'm not a big reader and far more enthralled with films, I've begun trying my hand at screenwriting too :)

I started up The Reel Life of Real Life, because I just absolutely love films! I love watching them and I love knowing the various techniques behind making them. So I figured I'd share my thoughts, musings, discoveries on this blog, and hopefully discover other people who love films just as much!

I hope you enjoy my posts and find a few of them in some way interesting! If there is a particular film that springs to mind that you recommend please don't hesitate in commenting below! Or if you'd rather not comment, feel free to email me at
