Since I was little I have always loved to write, listen to stories and read books. I have always thought about entering competitions but when it came to showing my work I never did and ended up regretting just not taking the chance. Now I am looking around and noticing just how taking a chance can change your life.
In 2009 I attended Edgehill University and came out with a 2:2 in Ba English and creative Writing. I didn't really try to pursue a career or consider furthering myself in the writing industry because in my third year at university I found out I was pregnant with my third child.
I became a stay at home mum, which I have loved being able to watch my children grow but now I feel that as they are getting older I want to get back to being me. I want to write, to take a chance and share my words and thoughts within my local area, the North West and even maybe the world one day. ;D
Through my time of being at home I did put myself forward to becoming a freelance writer. I have worked for some small companies, writing content for their websites and brochures and even had a dabble in the advertising industry.
Looking back, I wish I would have pushed myself more and pursued my dreams of becoming a published author and getting my name and work out there for all to see. I would love nothing more than to be heard as well as seen, I have a lot of ideas but don’t really know where and how to channel them.
I have loved having the opportunity to be involved with the write to work project…..
