Hi, I’m Clive.
I’m a writer.
I’ve always written, apart from a fifteen year period where children and work demanded every ounce of attention. But even then I wanted to write, as random sentences or paragraphs or stanzas in old notebooks attest.
Now I have more time, so I am writing. Poetry and short stories are the main focus at present. There are a couple of longer things hiding in the background for when I have achieved a level of proficiency I find acceptable.
There is no set thing I prefer to write. I will dabble in many forms. But Science Fiction and General Fiction are my two favorites. In poetry I favour structured forms such as villanelles and sonnets.
Hopefully, as time goes by, the blog will offer something useful to someone, somewhere. If not, well, I’ve done worse things than talk to myself.
