Creative Writing & NCC Home Learning: Competition

I adore writing and for the most part of my life I have enjoyed being an avid reader.

 Life gets in the way sometimes and I find myself not quite so able to dedicate the time to reading as many novels, or even science papers as I would like to. It is actually a 2016 goal of mine to do a bit more reading each month, so I had better get cracking before the year is out and before I have a newborn baby to take care of too.

I believe that my love of reading and writing started at a very young age; I zoomed through the different categories or levels of reading books in the early years classrooms of primary school and I am reminded of that each evening when Lily brings home a new book to read from her own school. I am glad she has also got an interest in reading and I am proud to say that her writing work is presented on the work as "Outstanding Work of the Week". That's my girl!

When she has fully grasped the ability to read and right, I will absolutely be encouraging her to be as creative with her writing as possible, supplemented by visits to the library. No doubt this will only influence my own interest in creative writing. I have several ideas for children's novels, but to be honest I don't know where to begin in terms of approaching publishers. In the meantime I can only do what I can here and there.
