I've retired from Primary School teaching since 2012. I decided to try to turn my hand to Creative Writing for the first time in my life. I attended a 10 week adult education class. I've since joined local informal groups such as U3A Cardiff. This has been both a challenge and inspiration. I still feel I'm experimenting with what particular genre or style suits me best.
I have enjoyed writing poetry , rhyme or free verse, if a theme or topic grabs me. I have tried some short stories and also write anecdotally, I would love to write poems and short stories for children. If only I had the time.
I also hope that there is a good sense of humour in a lot of my work. I am a committed Christian and try to write about life issues from that standpoint . I appreciate any feedback of any sort . I have put some poetry, short stories etc. on my WORDPRESS site doddmanbloghead.wordpress.com much of it written for the U3A group I attend who tend to toss out pretty obscure themes !!
