My Writing

Dreams and Aspirations

You should always have dreams and aspirations.  My dream is to become a children’s writer.   It keeps me going and gives me something to aim for.  I started writing when Lydia was two.  I was overcome with a desire to write a poem about her (not a particularly good one). I then thought “I can’t leave Samuel out”. So I wrote a poem about him (a better one) and so it has gone on.
