Boldly Going Nowhere

By Steven McKinnon

Biography & memoir, Comedy & satire | Paperback, eBook


How do you convince someone to love you when you can’t love yourself? Shy, geeky, lonely and running full-speed in the fast lane to nowhere, Steven McKinnon is stuck in a rut. He hates getting out of bed in the morning. He hates being a burden on his friends and family. And he hates himself for letting life slip through his fingers. ‘Sounds like you need a girlfriend,’ says one of his mates one night down the pub. It’s the call to action Steven needs. But what happens when you embark on a journey of self-discovery and don’t like what you find? What happens when you somehow defy the odds and make things worse? And even more terrifying – what do you do when someone actually likes you? Stopping off in Prague, Gothenburg, Newcastle and the sleepy hills of rural Scotland, Boldly Going Nowhere is the hilarious and achingly honest true story of what happens when one man decides to take a stand – against himself.

He is the author of Boldly Going Nowhere, in which he tells the story of how he broke free from the suffocating rut he was in. When not writing deeply personal stories about his private life and showing them to the world, Steven will either be eating cake, listening to Iron Maiden, or filling his brain with pointless Buffy and Battlestar Galactica trivia. Steven completed two courses of Creative Writing at the University of Glasgow in 2010, and completed an HNC in Professional Writing Skills at Reid Kerr College in 2006. He is 29, and was born in the bathroom of a high-rise flat in Glasgow on the 18th of March 1986. He has since moved out.
