It’s episode 137 with . . . well, ME! This week’s guest interview has had to be re-arranged due to illness, but as it’s been a few weeks since my last interview, I thought I would put out a short solo episode. I realized that in the whole time I’ve been doing this show, I don’t think I’ve ever talked in detail about my entire writing journey – how I got into words, what I started out wanting to achieve, where I have actually ended up and the strange path I took to get here.

I know there are loads of you out there who must be on a similar journey to me and it’s with that in mind, that I thought some of you (at least) might be interested to hear my story. And hopefully, you’ll be inspired to share your own stories with me, or at the very least realise that we’ve all been through similar experiences in this strange and difficult land called Writing.

Here are a few of the things I mention along the way . . .

A short monologue I wrote called “I’m Not Going To Think About Edie”

The lockdown drama I wrote and produced earlier this year – Life Support.
