About Me

My name is Joy, I am 66 years old and live in Gloucester.  I have three children, three step children, four grandchildren and one great grandson.   Although I have written some poetry in the past I am now attending Sue's creative writing classes in an attempt at improving my writing skills.   I am trying to write an account of life with my son Phillip who was born in 1963.  He has a learning disability and Asperger's Syndrome and we have faced many challenges along the way.  This was going to be my one and only attempt at writing anything other than poetry but I find I am getting the bug now and really enjoy exploring the different avenues creative writing produces.

About Me

Hi, my name is Monika, I'm freelance journalist/writer from Lithuania.

*I don’t know how to ride a bike, and don’t intend to learn.

*Sometimes I chew my own hair :S

*I cannot drink hot beverages from a glass cup

*I admire intellectual drug addicts (e.c. Sherlock Holmes)

*Sometimes I believe in my own lies

*I adore my grandmothers quilts

*I love my father and his sense of humor, his crazy stories…

*Sometimes I am unable to remember whether something has really happened or I have only dreamt it

*I do not like Ladybirds and Dragonflies, they freak me out…

*I talk to myself… 

*I like to poor shot’s in Coca-Cola cap…

*I still believe I have magical powers (I’m victim of Harry Potter books :P (but hey, I was only 9 when they came out))

*Deep down inside me I still believe in Santa Claus…

*Sometimes I cannot understand myself…

*I like the smell of plaster

So that's all about me... well, maybe not yet....

I try to find inspiration in every step of my life. Music and silence help the most.

I have lived in London for few years and took creative writing course there.

 I loved England... people, culture, their pubs :). It's lovely there. Irelands and Wales landcapes inspired me as well. Those countries really are beautiful, stunning, inspiring, breathtaking... and cosy.

I love to paint as well, and sometimes I even seek for inspiration to write in my paintings.

Love watching movies and maybe one day I'll write a movie myself.

Love cats and puzzles, reading books and summertime, tea and chocolate cheescake, sleeping and dreaming, Hans Zimmer and U2, Tim Burton and Colin Firth...  Sherlock Holmes and Shakespeare....

I enjoy learning new things, that's what inspires my. Learning about new cultures, someone's life story, new recipe, playing an instrument, etc... and doing something for a very first time...

About Me

I'm a scruffy middle aged grandmother.

I drive a big old muddy land rover which horrifies my neighbours.

I love my husband, my children and my horses.

I like a glass of wine and a cigarette.

I can't bear to be indoors, not being able to see the sky makes me twitchy.

My friends consider me to be very funny. And kind. Which is nice.

I've worked at Glastonbury festival for years.

My grandaughter and I often end up on the Naughty Step together. Apparently I'm more badly behaved than her, and she's only 2.
