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...

    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.

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