Words, words, words.

My lack of blogging has been appalling I know, but with good reason.

I’m getting creative... again

I’ve always loved writing and when I was at school many moons ago, I was lucky enough to have an English teacher who encouraged me. During class she would let me sit at the back and write a short story and at the end of the class I’d hand it in and she would review it for me.

I was around twelve years old, my imagination was endless, and I kept coming up with a new short story each week.

After a year or so the teacher suggested that I start to enter writing competitions... and then... boys came along, I stopped writing and started getting creative in other ways. Yes, I started young, but I don’t regret a thing.

Then when I was sixteen I went out with a guy who played the guitar and he taught me about lyric writing and song composition, I must have written at least fifty songs within the space of 5 months.

I still have a passion for lyrics and music and love artists such as Jill Scott who effortlessly blend poetry and music, but short stories and poetry are my forte, not music.

In my twenties I knuckled down to a 3 year degree in creative writing and publishing at Middlesex University, and have done nothing with it.

So with my 38th birthday coming up (actually tomorrow), I decided that my creativity should not be left to run idle any longer, hence my lack of blogging. What with work, keep fit, socialising, and writing, my days are pretty much taken care of.

I’m not quitting my blog, no, no, no. I’ve simply decided to get back in to creative writing and to see where it takes me.

At some point, I might start a creative writing blog.
