One person's writing experience
David L Atkinson

One person's writing experienceBorn in Sunderland in 1950, retired after 34 years teaching and then a further 6 years working in a bank. I began writing in 2009 and have published 5 Patrick A Steele stories, a dystopian novel and a collection of original poetry. I began writing many years ago and I started with poetry, don't ask me why, it just seemed to be appropriate at the time. However, I have always wanted to write a book and actually started in with planning fifteen years ago. It didn't go anywhere and I think that was because I'd been influenced by reading something about needing to plan thoroughly! It's not me. I gave up on that book, time passed and the urge was still with me so four years ago I began. It's rather like eating the elephant, one mouthful at a time!
