SA Partridge: a Blog

Tales from the dark side

I love writing; I’ve been doing it since I was old enough to dream up interesting little characters in my young mind. I remember how excited I used to be at my creations; the little fairies and goblins that I imagined inhabited our garden. The characters may have grown up and the stories may have darkened, but the passion is still there and I plan to continue doing it for a very long time.

Winning the young writers competition boosted my confidence and allowed me to explore areas that seemed too difficult or beyond my capabilities. Writing has always been therapeutic, and to receive recognition for something so personal was amazing. I felt good about my writing and terribly proud of my story, and in a way, it increased my own self worth. It’s an impossible feeling, knowing that someone enjoyed something that you wrote. I’m still getting used to the idea but at the same time all I want to do is write more. It’s great.
