I’ve never stopped to think whether I like my writing! When I write about our travels responses often show that others have enjoyed reading the posts and they often share experiences. That gives me a buzz. Knowing that my grandchildren are enjoying reading about things I’ve done over the last 70 years has also given me satisfaction.
One thing I do like about my writing is the relief I feel when I “Let off steam”! A few years ago I was so angry at our Prime Minister of the time that I wrote a poem. It helped me but unfortunately two Australian citizens were shot overseas because of his posturing.
After a very unsatisfactory hospital procedure about a year ago I wrote it out of my system. When Mum died I simply couldn’t speak at her funeral but I was able to write about some incidents in our lives and it brought a few laughs when my brother read it out. When Dad was to leave hospital and an appropriate place needed to be found for him I was too emotional to speak at the placement meeting but I was able to present a letter explaining my worries.
I like that my writing stays solid when I go to jelly!
