Hi! I have always wanted to write, ever since I was 9 years old. I'm in my forties now. I did write a novel some years ago and was rejected 3 times.  I was so disgruntled I threw the novel on one side and never went back to it or attempted to write.  One publisher did tell me not to give up because I had something and to keep trying. I gave my novel to my A Level English teacher years ago who had a look at it for me and put me right where I'd been going wrong.  I didn't re submit it to various publishers.  I've just left it. I drew inspiration for my second novel from two visits to the mining museum.  I'd always had an interest in mining.  I sat down and put some notes together for this novel and started to write two chapters.  Its ended up on a lonely shelf somewhere! I did the same writing course as some of the members of the group many moons ago.  Some members remembered me but I didn't them. I stumbled across Yeadon Writers three to four  years ago whilst sat in the library and decided to give them a call.  They are a wonderful group of people with various writing experiences and are always so welcoming and friendly, even when you've not been for a long time.  I much prefer the group to a writing course.  Its very informal and relaxed.  I look forward to my Tuesday nights! Hope to see you there!
