The name for this blog occurred to me as a happy accident. As a full-time teacher (and very busy parent!) I don’t often have time to write creatively. And yet, given the subjects that I teach – English and Creative Writing, being someone who writes is a really important part of my professional life.
Over the past year, walking up to collect my daughter after work, I started to jot ideas, prose snippets and then poems down on my phone. And this became a really important part of my day, fifteen minutes to myself, where I could think and write and reflect.
So, my blog is named ‘Walking with Words’, because that’s my writing experience day to day. And I hope that you enjoy the words that I write while I am walking!
