Thankfully it’s half term, meaning that I have more time to write and relax, although I do have a large amount of work to get done. Last weekend was really busy as we’ve started having some building work done, hence why I didn’t post last week!
So I thought I’d do a short post today simply talking about why I write and what got me into writing etc. It’s only short as I’m working on a piece at the moment, but hopefully I can do a better post next week.
The thing that got me into writing was the fact that I’ve always been a daydreamer and have loved reading since I learned how to! When I was little I used to see my Grandma a lot and she used to read poetry to me. It was that that got me into loving poetry. Also, I’ve written stories ever since I was small, my first (as far as I remember) was called “When Badger Saw the Sun” – I think! There were probably about ten words per page and about six pages, and then awful drawings (I never have been able to draw) but I still have it somewhere. I haven’t written many stories since I got into writing poetry, however I am trying harder now, and I’m going to try to complete NaNoWriMo, just to get me regularly writing and practising. I’m not too bothered whether what I write is good or not, providing I have written something, I’ll be happy!
Anyway, I know today was a short post, but that’s because I’ve been doing quite a lot of writing recently, especially today, and so haven’t had much time to write on here. Next week’s post will hopefully be a lot better and more interesting!
