It’s been a year since I last updated this blog.   A year ago I was about to embark on my journey as an MA Creative Writing student at Bath Spa University in the glorious surroundings of Corsham Court.  And now it has all come to an end.  

So what did I learn?  I learnt that putting word after word on the page is hard and that every element of your story has to be there for a reason, either to further character or move the plot on.    Being on the course gave me the space and excuse I needed to take my writing  seriously and to develop a writing habit.  I was lucky to be surrounded by talented, supportive writers of all ages and backgrounds and with whom I have made some enduring  friendships.  

I'll miss seeing these, but not their plaintive cries!
