Well, not ‘here’ exactly, but somewhere similar. I’ve had a couple of previous blogs. The last one was in this name, the one before, in another name. They were both Blogger blogs and very fine they were, too.
But I fancied a change. The first time I changed blogs, it was a practical matter. A change-of-name matter. I had the first blog for a long time and posted 2-3 times a week. That was a lifetime away. I moved on.
This change has been for a different reason. This time, it’s more about psychology.
I’ve been writing most of my life. I don’t mean writing shopping lists and making notes on the back of the TV guide, I mean: I have been writing stories, and LOVING writing stories, for as long as I can remember. It keeps me sane (and engaged) like nothing else does. It’s just something that comes naturally. Am I any good? In honesty, I don’t know. I just know I love it and always will.
It feels as if I’ve had a relationship with writing. When we first ‘got together’ I was around ten years old. I was introverted as a child and although I was part of a very loving family, I found it easier to express myself through the written word. I wrote stories about kids going to school. It was the only thing I really knew about.
