It might sound cliché, but ever since I was a child I wanted to be a writer. Back then, the chances of ever making it were vanishingly small. I felt guilty about thinking about exploring it beyond merely a hobby, to wave short stories under the noses of friends and family and get the best compliment a hobbyist could expect.

"That's nice."

These days, fiction is an outlet for my perception of the world and events in my own life. Not always, but enough to know it's a key form of my self-expression. I've also recently come to realise that when I've gone long periods without a fiction project, I feel diminished mentally. Writing has helped me through some of the most difficult times in my life and it no doubt will do so again.
