Love your story, Maureen. I used to want to be an author, and writing was my passion.However, I reached the stage after a few years, when I realised that I had to make a choice; to carry on full time, or give up altogether.I chose the latter....work, family commitment, you know.
I missed it at first, but then, sometimes, I was struck by inspiration, and would write down my thoughts on scraps of paper before the moment vanished forever.This kind of developed into poetry as time went on, and I have in my possession now, some great works of a great poet; namely, me!
I enjoy reading them every so often, and my family press me to enter competitions, which I do, now and then (as they think my work is good).
However, I have never won anything, but this hobby has been an outlet for my frustrated creative talents, and I am happy with just that.
Maybe one day........!
