About Jodie Llewellyn
I thought great question. So copied it here.
You should do a blog post asking everyone how they got into the writing that they do, how long ago, etc.
Which is a great question 🙂
So how did everyone’s writing journey begin?
I started writing as a teenager. Not fiction but about my life as an abused child.
No one ever got to read it, I wrote what I did and through it away. As I was ridiculed for writing and that meant I couldn’t be a man, I had to be gay.
In turn that stopped me sharing anything I’d written for many years and stopped any thought of ever wanting to be published.
I used my writing as a literal scream. My way of escaping abuse and calm the anger I felt inside.
After joining a writers group not so long ago I’m now planning to write part of my life story and try to get it published.
Can’t wait to hear your replies.
