I started writing poetry at the tender age of sixteen. From thereon my love of the written word grew. Thanks to an excellent teacher, Simone French, I also developed an affinity with literary criticism.
Remembering with fondness my comparison of the song Halo by Depeche Mode and The French Lieutenant’s Woman by John Fowles. I got creative back then, spotting correlations between the seemingly incongruous.
I’m undertaking a course to better understand this particular type of writing. It’s a little less structured than I’m used to. Obviously, my mind and ideas are tangential and a little out there at times, so maybe in some ways its also a little more structured than I’m used to too. I’ve always been a fan of paradoxes; we’ll see how paradoxical this particular medium proves to be…
My natural home for creativity. Although, its been a while since I’ve written anything with teeth. Hopefully, this will inspire my current projects and help us all move forward with our plots, character development and more besides. There’s such a lot to write about here that it could make a compelling book all by itself – and probably one day will.
As this page suggests (at present), I’ve always been a fan of poetry. From Robert Browning to Wordsworth. From my smutty, humorous christmas poems to the verse to my beloved. Verse has a home in all writing and yet sits on the fringes of all.
