I started writing in my twenties, out of some necessity. I was still hurting after a traumatic childhood. I knew what I wanted to say but somehow words cannot express the emotion one feels and out of frustration I stopped writing for forty six years. I started writing again in the last two years, I am older now but not much has changed, I am still my worst critic.
