I'm sure you're making it better! Our writing voices change, don't they?

It takes a while to be courageous enough to write as yourself! Before that, I was trying to be literary! Vomit-inducing stuff!

Thank you! You're very kind. I wrote it as part of a Freefall workshop in 2012. It's one of the first pieces I wrote in my own 'voice'.

Thank you! It's a very early piece and I think it's rather unsophisticated (!), but it came from the heart. ❤️

Thank you! It's some of my very early writing but it was one of the first pieces I wrote in my 'voice', simple as it was. I did love my dad.

Definitely! It's seven years since I practised, though, so I wouldn't rely on me to save you if you arrested!
