I am, therefore I write.
No, you’re not suffering from delusions; no I have not inverted my phrase by accident. Since I penned my first words I have always written for the amusement of others. Be it on cards to family or in journals and diaries, a creative bent has gripped me with each flurry of the ‘stilo’. I recall with fondness my first full length story, aged eight: the fully illustrated ‘Mittens the Kitten’. It’s more than likely in a large cardboard box in my parents’ loft, which is where my other creations were until recently unearthed to make way for loft insulation.
