Nine Monthiversary!!!

Today, Nine months ago, on the 7th of March 2018 I started out on a journey. I had no idea how to blog, I had no idea if it would work out at all.

I had written ‘stuff’ for years. The odd poem, a few short stories, even a fantasy novel. All my material had languished at the bottom of drawers on in abandoned files. I hadn’t shared it with anyone.

Then in January, I was bought a present of a few Creative Writing Lessons as CityLit academy in London. This experienced opened up my mind.

It inspired me to share my work more widely.

I discovered WordPress who made it very easy for someone like me who is a bit of a technophobe, to create a blog.

Here I am Nine Months Later.

I wish to thank every one who has visited my blog, liked my posts and left me helpful and positive comments. I would not still be doing this after Nine months without YOU. THANK YOU.
