My blog is award free. I great appreciate your considering me for awards but your presence is always reward enough.
I have been writing for a lot of years. I enjoy the process and I enjoy trying different genres. I have been teaching for a lot of years and being a teacher of drama I am very interested if not passionate about performance.
Therefore a lot of the pieces that I will place in this blog will be performance pieces I have written with my students.
Added to that I will put here the variety of work I have written over the years. Last year when my father was dying I found writing each evening when I went home was a way for me to deal with the distress of watching my father’s life ebb away.
Sometimes I find my subjects work best for me as prose and other times no matter how hard I try I cannot get a word of prose out of them but rather they speak to me as poetry.
My work is what I like to write, often depending on my mood and inspiration.
I have been fortunate over the past two years to have a wonderful friend who has been my audience. She has amazingly tolerated my literary efforts and been supportive of work, I have at times may struggled to complete.
Since beginning this blog I have made some wonderful friends amongst the many bloggers who regularly read my work. I would like to think that I use the blog to experiment with writing forms and subjects. Always my work is a labour of love, and even in saying that I am aware that sometimes one piece will work better than others. But that’s life.
I have learned over the years that language is a common bond between all peoples. However the context in which we read each others work varies and what one person will see as good and exciting another may well see nothing at all. That is always the challenge with writing. But when you stop enjoying the process it is sadly time to put your keyboard away. Hopefully for me that wont happen until I can’t see it any longer.
If anything you read in here hits a chord with you then great. If not, thanks for looking and I urge you to continue your journey.
If you have read this far be it known that awards are flattery but are unnecessary as your comments and the time taken to read my work is what I am always grateful for.
