It sounds cliched, but I have always wanted to write. The problem is, I haven’t. I can’t blame my career in Housing or a lack of time. The problem, has been me. Olympic level procrastination skills and a lack of confidence have stopped my fledgling attempts to write every time. Until now….
Earlier this year, I decided that it was time to push past the obstacles and start writing. I have started writing poetry for the first time and have also had an article published in the local paper. To really give myself some impetus I have also booked myself onto an Arvon course at Lumb Bank in July. The course’s title says it all – The art of beating demons.
This blog will form part of my journey going forward. I hope to capture the highs and the lows and what works for me and what doesn’t. If nothing else, I don’t want to regret not having tried to find my voice. Wish me luck!
