I like to review the year which has ended before making plans for 2017so here are some experiences from 2016:
Writing also brings enjoyment and despair!
Not many acceptances this year but, to be fair, not many submissions either. However I did write a piece each month for the programme we present on local radio and also a radio play which was read by actors.
Out and about: Walking through stunning countryside and visiting new places both here and abroad is always a joy. We spend much of the summer at the Yorkshire coast and never tire of the scenery.
The social enterprise in which I am involved, Yorkshire MORE, supports mental health. We make 8 flavours of jams and chutneys at a community kitchen and sell to local retailers and at various food fairs, including the BBC Good Food Fair at Harrogate.
I would be interested to know what new and exciting things you have done during this year and your hopes and dreams for 2017.
