There was a time I believed that being a writer would be about lying in the bright sunshine, probably in a field or other warm grassy nook, dreaming of wizards and dragons with a splash of spaceship and galactic war.
The reality is a hard slog, finding it hard to afford to eat or support a family, desperate for the time to write what I want to write amid a sea of badly paid guff about life insurance or email solutions. Hours go past, and ne'er a wizard seen.
Perhaps Wattpad can offer some small island in that sea, where once more I can relax, even if it for only an hour a week, and become enchanted with a little magic.
