I’m re-starting the My500Words challenge. Why? Sadly, I can’t go to either of my writing classes any more. Script East has moved too far away for me to walk to at night and the previously free, ‘Read, Write, Chat’ has started charging, so I can’t afford to go. I don’t have any paid work at the moment and I’m struggling to get by, so even £4 is £4 too much.
It would be easy to feel sad, but actually it’s liberating. Meeting to write was too tempting a reason to write. I shouldn’t need a reason and a place and a time. I have everything I need right here.
