I have decided to start this blog to focus my thoughts on writing and literature. I often find I am too critical of my own work (this is what happens when you edit and proofread all day) and expect it to be better than it can be at first.
I have started a sport called Roller derby. The first thing you learn is how to take a fall and not to be afraid of it. Do we ever really learn that in writing?
Today I have bruises and a bit of a sore arm which makes picking things up physically difficult, but knock backs to your writing, in my opinion, leave emotional bruising which is a lot harder to get used to.
So from now on I aim to practise crashing and help others to as well.
