Someone asked me if I had thought about writing a book about my experiences living in the UK. I had never considered it really. The idea that people would actually want to read about it is silly to me; most of the time I’m bored by the things I do, I wouldn’t want to inflict it on others as well! But it got me thinking. I remember that at the beginning of the year I made a long list of things I wanted to do this year (not resolutions, just a To Do list for 2009) and that writing more was on it.
I’ll be damned if I can find that list now, though!
Anyway, as I was shopping for my lunch today a magazine caught my eye, Writing Magazine! I bought it. I haven’t read it yet, but it did come with a Competition Special for 2010, listing all the writing and poetry competitions for the rest of 2009 and all of 2010. I will definitely start writing again and enter a few.
It makes me happy to think I’ll be writing again. I miss it, but as I always wrote when I was depressed as a release I haven’t felt the need, or had the time, to write for a long time now.
I won’t be writing that book, but maybe this will lead to some other opportunities on my doorstep.
