#amwriting

Spent an hour or so tonight writing about an unfamiliar subject: me.
It's for an anthology of reflections on school geography that's being produced for an event in 2017.
I've been looking back at my early years, and how they influence the person, and the teacher that I am now, and the power of the place where I was born and grew up, and memories of school.

I've been using a range of tools to explore the changes in the area since then, and what it was like in the period from 1963-75 in particular. It's been an interesting change from the writing that I've been doing for the last year or two… going to hunt out some old photos too.
