My official start in writing came when I had to run a local history project with volunteers. The guy commissioning me told me that they couldn’t pay me as the project manager as there was no budget, but they could pay me for writing the report. He said “and if you want you’ll be able to call yourself a professional writer, haha!”
I nearly dropped my cup of tea. I thought ‘I’ll have some of that.’
I write technical pieces about history and industry. I’m very proud of doing this work and I have learnt so much from doing it.
