(but what if I'm not really a Writer?)

What if I’m just Deluded?
And no one will ever read another word that I write?

(have I lost you already?)

I think that -
I’d still have the stories in my head
I’d still want to explore those people, and those places
(and especially all their secrets)
I know I’d still need the sheer escape of writing

So, I reckon that . . .
I’d still love it

I’d still write.


So that’s ok then.

A Walk in the Park with the BBC

'My favourite way in is on foot, through the quietly rustling Parkside entrance. There is something almost fairytale about passing through one small, creaking gate and then another, and in the spring, the vivid, violet spectacle of bluebells beyond the railings is dazzling - dizzying. A reason in itself to love the park . . .'
