I didn’t quite know what I was getting into when I started this blog. For those who have come in late, I started it with little thought, after one of my stories, The Snail & his Trail, failed to get a place in a fable writing competition. Later that day, as I vacuumed the house (I lead a very exciting life) I thought of posting my diary entries.
Quentin Crisp always said that you must work out what is unique or special about yourself and use that to your advantage in life. It occurred to me that not everyone has a stack of diaries that document their life from age 10, as I do. And that’s how What She Said was conceived.
I never reckoned on how satisfying and absorbing this blogging business would be. I’ve really enjoyed meeting new people here in cyber space, especially fellow bloggers, mums, and people with similar musical tastes. It’s such a buzz when people leave comments and share something of themselves with me/us.
As ever, thank you so much for reading. Feel free to say hello, and please stay with me!
