When was the first time you started writing and what piece of work did you create?


I remember writing a story about a time traveller as a schoolkid in the backpages of a notebook and the buzz it gave when my classmates read it... I also wrote a short poem about a piece of chalk being a martyr as it slowly wore itself down teaching us kids... my teacher was very impressed! What was your first experience?

    thanks! My teacher was very effusive about the chalk poem. A girl and her horse is always a great start...

    Not much has changed Mickey Sr.. that wry humour, the clever rhyme and the 'twist' ending that shocks but gradually gives us a smile...

    wow. Isn't it amazing ( and slightly annoying) when something we imagined years ago crops up in someone else's creative space years later...

    it's always a nice experience to be recognised early and the confidence boost it gives to pursue the passion of writing... I remember the O Henry conversation. I too can never forget the Gift of Magi... the sheer beauty of that ending.
