A piece, of sorts.

I sit here cautiously savouring the relative calm of mid-evening; both of my young children are asleep in bed (for now) and after pondering what I am going to write here all day, I finally have the time to actually do it. Yet, I am still making this up as I go along.

Please bear with me.

What you have stumbled across here is essentially an ill-formed idea, a maybe/hopefully side-project that may possibly lead to an improvement in my situation or, perhaps, to nothing.

What do I hope this will be?

  1. Quite simply, the first of many posts.
  2. A place for me, where I may stretch my creative muscles again (without interruption from little ones) and hopefully work towards building a portfolio of marketable work.
  3. An escape route. After many years of working in corporate or office settings, I have come to realise that no matter how much I try to fit in, I am just not suited for the associated politics. I am currently on maternity leave and to be in a position where I do not have to rush straight back into work when it ends would be heaven.

So, hello… I am Rach, an aspiring freelance writer.
