I'm a dynamic and passionate writer who spends every waking moment ... no, of course I'm not. I'm too old to be dynamic - although I never was - and I write when I have the time. I am passionate about writing but worry that I might also be deluded; as I've not invited feedback before I'm not sure if my ramblings are any good.
I'm in my late fifties, female, and live in England; east, past London (but no, I don't know anyone on TOWIE). I started writing in 2015, although have nothing finished yet except the Chuck Wendig Flash Fiction Challenges that I've posted and a couple of competition entries. BUT I have some ideas and half a novel. I hope to finish the novel and start another but I'm at that stage where I need some serious technical/professional advice; research is not easy when people at home (except my daughter) have no idea what you're up to.
I've always read books, lots of them, the odd classic but mostly just good stories. And I wrote well at school, but not since, there never seemed to be the time, or spare energy. Now I seem to have the 'urge', and a bit of determination.
So I'll carry on for now, see what becomes of it. If I keep writing I might improve and feel confident enough to share with family and friends.
On the home page I'm quite convinced there's no rush. That was two years ago, which seems like ten, and the next two years will go by like a month. Not sure that's an accurate analogy but I believe I should get a move on!
If anyone is reading this, please leave a comment. If I haven't enabled this option, please bear with me, I'll get my daughter to help (need an emoji for 'looking skywards' here).
