WRITING AND OTHER THINGS
Hello lovely readers,
People ask me when I started wanting to be a writer, and I can remember there were times in my youth when I would scribble ideas down. I wrote a project when I was about twelve, at school. It was to write a story. It took it really seriously, and of all the things I have thrown away, my first story I saved. I don't know why.
Then, when I was a teenager, I started to keep a diary, a journal. I'd write day diaries, but this was different. I'd write down ideas for stories. My father and mother had both been heavily involved in drama societies - acting, directing - but not really writing. Maybe, it felt like I could branch out and do something of my own. I didn't really get encouraged to act. It felt like their thing. The reality was, I enjoyed writing.
I found this photograph of me, just before Christmas, at the age when I started to take writing seriously. It never took hold until a decade later, but I think I've always been writing in some way.
Good luck to all those who are writing, painting, expressing themselves in some way through art. We are many things. Not just a label. I write, but I also do other things too - so don't see myself as just a 'writer'.
Hope art brings you as much joy as it has brought me.

Happy new year charlot how are you feeling hopefully a lot better and well on the way to mend I love the photo especially black and white they are just so full of atmosphere and thought I always feel sad packing away the Christmas decorations and tree it looks so basic but then things get back to routine and I’m busy back at my painting board really trying to paint portraits Not only watercolours but charcoal I think we all have a gift whether it be creative or the kind of person you are can’t wait for your next book they are familiar characters that I’m sure all us readers and you as a author picture each and everyone differently in our minds so not only do you write amazingly you get our brains working so lead on charlot as we wait in anticipation and look after yourself take it easy love from a sunny not so cold Alberta xxxx
You're spot on. Creativity takes many forms. Individual expression as well. If you enjoy expressing your feelings, ideas and emotions through different media, go for it!
