I restarted writing poetry in April 2008 initially as a way to channel my feelings following the death of my eldest daughter at the tender age of 17.I started an online poetry group on www.premiercommunity.org.uk in September 2008. This group goes from stength to strength and has around 200 members . We do joint activites and encourage one another.I decided to work on some creative prose writiing and so joined this site to practice and learn more about this. I have started to tackle the weekly challenge. I am a christian married for 23 years and have one other daughter who is nearly 17.She is studying childcare and education and is also creative mainly with photography. I used to be a doctor for 25 years but now am a poet and artist and seeing what else God has got in store for me.
I took a break from faithwriters but am back again as i miss the weekly challenge task and after reading a anthology of short stories by "famous" authors i reckon that I could write just as well if not better!!!!!!!
