Writing and Reading
This is my space to share my emerging writing and write about the books I love. I write mostly short stories and flash but have also written (and hidden in a drawer) a Middle Grade novel that I intend to return to one day, polish off and send out into the world.
I have always written ever since I was a child but I have never been brave enough to share my writing outside of my trusted circle of friends and fellow writers. However, I have now decided to be braver and am spending 2022 submitting my writing and waiting to see what happens. Maybe nothing, but at least I will have tried.
I absolutely love to write. It is my pleasure and my hobby and my sustenance and something I hope to do much more of now my children are older.
Looking forward to connecting with other writers and readers on the same journey.
“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”
