Writing is something I've aspired to doing for some time now. But I've tended to convince myself that I'll get round to it some other day. I love to read, and I hope one day to write. I'm joining this site out of curiosity, and a hopeful optimism that perhaps by surrounding myself with other wannabe writers I will finally get over the initial inertia and indecision that's been postponing me putting pen to paper (or fingertips to plastic keys). My favourite book that I've read in the past 12 months has been Ali Smith's "How to be both".
