EVERY ONE HAS A STORY
Sometimes we just have to sit still long enough to hear it.
So what is your story?
Words are a big part of my household. My partner is a singer song writer and I am often sticking my nose in with a helpful (??) word or two. I have a nine year old son and am amazed at what kids his age are writing and comprehending today.
My paid writing work is limited to a bit of copy here and there while my leisure writing suffers from consistency. You are not a writer unless you write - every day. I am not a writer!
I enjoy the flow of words, the silliness of them and one day I would love to be good at it and for words to flow effortlessly into the several projects I have on the go at the moment.
Some of my current projects
