I write because if I don't I will lose what there is left of my mind. I write because I truly believe in what I have to say (even if no other Bugger does) and I write because I genuinely love it. I write what means something to me. Everything I write I have a personal attachment to, this is a labour of love not a way to make money. As my bank will attest to.
I have written all of my life in one way shape or form. Only now do I have the balls to show it to other people and ask them if they think it would make a good film.
