I am an English teacher and I want to write. Not the most original, but there you go. It's taken me an inordinately long time to get started. Given that I'm somewhere in my fifties. In 2015 I wrote my first full novel, an attempt at romantic fiction; it's sat in a virtual folder, and there it will probably stay. I'm the proud owner of an MA in Creative Writing from Lancaster University, and still working on the project that I submitted for that. I currently have the sort of family issues that makes an episode of Hollyoaks look understated and muted - hence the 'anxious'.
