Biography

Finding the first line to anything is the most difficult. Where is this place called inspiration? Then by chance stumbling across it while staring at a blank piece of paper. Being a member of Stockport Write Out Loud gives me the valuable support of personal friendship, that bonds strong positive energy, helping to produce a higher level of enjoyment to my writing. The more pleasure that a poem brings - - - the more I want to write.

Loved your comment, โญ, thank you so much. I'm very new to this website. Greg gave me his card so that I can upload my thing. You're very observant, amazing a man can notice a woman's red painted toe nails!

went great Nigel on Saturday. had a really good laugh, as it got wrapped quickly - i ended up doing two poems for them, hopefully both will go live next week. will be sharing them on here for that defo and will be mentioning it at stockport when i am there next.

also - i sent two poems over to Rachel last night, one of which needed some major ish rewriting from but i am hopeful at least one will be accepted. yeah, it was a really good workshop (I came away in total after redrafting last night - 9 poems).

hope you enjoyed your dizzy blonde (:

See you soon
