Creative writing has been a hard habit to break, so I keep on doing it. When I'm inspired, I write first and think later. And so far, I've never regretted it!
I believe that everyone has stories to tell - particularly children. I run writing workshops for 10-14 years olds on how to find their own ‘writing voice’, by getting them to pen their own stories.
Talking at schools also helps me share my experiences and (hopefully) inspire children to read more and write more. I learn a lot from them too!
