I do find it hard to write to order and sometimes I do gaze at the blank screen for a while, but all of a sudden, like writing songs, something pops into my head (usually a title) and then off I go. My stories seem to write themselves. I go for lots of long walks, take loads of photos of wildlife, countryside and old villages and buildings and these are like visual notes and can inspire me...so if you get blocked, go for a walk, talk to people or read a good book. I am sure something will start to unblock you soon.(less)

I can do my own thing in my own time and I don't have to leave the house. I no longer babysit fully grown, spoiled adults, who are too selfish and egotistical to think of the needs of someone else; me or others working hard for them. I can sit in my PJ's if I want, drink tea and eat liquorice and have the TV or radio on...I can even belt out a few rock songs as I write. I am boss. I am free. I can be me.(less)
