Although I have been interested in poetry;
story writing and art since I was very young, I didn't really take it seriously until friends of mine commented positively
on some of my work. I completed a course not long after, which included a section on creative writing and when my tutor
read the first story I wrote, he showed it to some of his colleagues. This fact and his & their comments, inspired me
to write more stories.
I first entered an online competition and
entered poems, from where I received some really positive feedback and my poems published on the web. In 2002, I entered a
poetry competition and had my poem published in a book (this was the first book I had been published in & I was thrilled).
It was then suggested that I build my own
website, which was a really positive experience, to begin with, but I had a few really wierd emails from some rather strange
people, so I unpublished my website.
This site is my second edition!!! Hopefully,
I will receive much more positive, or constructive comments. I have purposely left my email address out;however, you can still
contact me via my guestbook and i WILL get back to you.
I am artistic in many ways, but any artist
(whether literary, or other) needs inspiration...and I have had plenty of that! However; I do sometimes get 'writers block',
which is annoying, because the amount of stories I am halfway through writing, is unbelievable! I really must stay focused
and finish them (but thats a different story!)
