Why Do I Write?

This week's blog will look at my writing but not the actual words. We'll be looking at the reasons why I write. If I'm being honest, there are too many for me to actually cover. However, if I'm really honest about what keeps me coming back to a blank page (or even one with a few squiggles… Continue reading Why Do I Write?
