Something that impacted on my life in a huge way happened back in February of this year.
I had been talking about writing for some time. In fact, I had written some poems and a fantasy story in the past, but it was something that I only did once in a while, despite the fact that I found it a liberating experience.
For my Christmas present, I was given an 8-week Introduction to Creative Writing course at CityLit in London. This had a massive impact on my life. Instead of writing once in a while, I found myself sitting down and writing stories and poems at first weekly, but then it was like a tap being turned on in my head and the creativity flowed.
Next, I was inspired to submit my writing for a competition. It didn’t go anywhere by they sent me a link to WordPress and recommended I start my own blog.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am very old-fashioned (Stuck in the dark ages was how one friend described me) and so I had never expected to start a blog.
In March I started posting material that I had written some time ago. Then I found that I started to write new material daily. I found a blogging community that was supportive and inspired me even further.
I would like to say a huge thank you to all my blogging pals, people who regularly visit and like my work and leave nice comments. To old friends and new ones, thank you.
YOU have made a huge impact in my life.
