I discovered creative writing at the age of 63 when I settled in Glasgow after living abroad. I signed up for the Strathclyde Centre for Longer Living course, and stayed with it for 3 years. I've been writing ever since, loving it more each year. At the end of the course 10 of us wanted to continue and after a few false starts we have been meeting every month since 2012, reading out 'homework' and discussing each story, which opens up memories. Initially I thought I wasn't interested in being published or competitions, but now I've reached 80 I think it would be wonderful to see something in print - and not just the School FP Magazine!
