How many people here like to write?
I find it enormously cathartic and has been a really good vehicle to help my mental wellbeing in the last 18 months or so. Last year I produced a couple of Fanzines for Hendon Football Club that were well received and I also wrote 95% of a third edition which, hasn’t as yet seen the light of day.
At the moment, I’m writing a series of pieces about my travels watching Non-League football this season, about people I’ve met, places I’ve been, clubs I’ve visited and what it is that makes them so special. If I carry on as I have done so far (completed 9 pieces, have 3 part-written and one other to begin) then I’m considering releasing an e-book for anyone who might be minded to purchase and have a gander at. It’s a bit niche, but there are saddos (like me) that might be partially interested.
I’m not particularly gifted at writing, but I thoroughly enjoy it. I really want to write some fiction, short stories, perhaps, but not really sure where to start with that.
Anyway, are you guys writing anything at the moment? If so, what’s on the page at the moment? Fiction? Non-Fiction? Freelance stuff?
Do you find it easy or difficult to write? Do you ever get writer’s block or work on the basis that any old shit on the page is better than none, at least you can edit a load of bollocks a lot easier than you can an empty page.
