Who am I and why have I started blogging?
I began this blog just over a year ago. I started it so my friends could share in my adventures as I left my home state to live elsewhere for a year. Now I am blogging for different reasons.
I love to write. I have numerous notebooks filled with scribbles of stories, poems, character details, plot outlines… But nothing that I have bothered to rewrite, edit or flesh out into anything substantial. I am hoping through doing this I will learn new skills and find the inspiration and discipline I need to continue what I love.
I am a mother and a teacher. Now my children are at school I am hoping I will find more time to write. This indulgence is me time.
I have no real ideas about what I would like to write about, but I am hoping that I can come up with a collection of fiction as well as some interesting anecdotal stories.
I hope to link with people of different backgrounds that will be willing to share their knowledge through their blogs and maybe read and comment on mine from time to time.
My ultimate aim is to come away from this experience with a renewed sense of self. I am me and I don’t want to apologise for that.
I hope you enjoy reading and sharing.
Oh and I just want to add: I love long walks on the beach…
