Some of it's crap but it'll do

Why write?

I've never been one of those writers who writes something and then files it away.
Even if I only write my name, I ask somebody to read it.
Here you'll see the proof. For although I know that some of the contributions to this page are poor, I enjoyed writing all of it. And as I keep trying to remind my ego, that's always the main thing.

Cinders' Happy Daze

This is the original script of the play I wrote in 2002 (I think).
It was adapted and performed over four nights in the Repertory Theatre in Stoke-on-Trent, England, in February 2002 (or was it 2001 or 2003?).
In any case, working with the cast and the director was a lot of fun, and I was proud to be part of the show, staged jointly by Stoke-on-Trent Social Services and Combined Healthcare.
