I am going to start by pasting all the stuff I have stored away that I have written in the past - starting with a poem written when I was 8 and continuing over the years - a lot of it as an angst ridden (and, at times 'born again') teenager. Some were even songs with the help of my guitar. I make no apology for any of that.
This is how I described these old writings when they appeared elsewhere on the web:
Those That Are Mine (the ramblings of an addled brain) by Natalie Ford (neé Fricker)
This is a page of links to various poems, prose and ramblings I have penned over the years.
The links are listed in roughly chronological order, where I can remember. Most were written between the ages of 11 and 20 (I am older now).
I have included everything I still have a copy of, for completeness sake - I do not like all of them and really love some of them.
Most were written when I was experiencing extremes of emotion - very happy or depressed - and so do not reflect my usual state of mind in any way!
Some describe phases that I have been through (e.g. religeous) on my path to some semblance of 'growing-up' and so, also, do not necessarily reflect my views and beliefs as they stand today.
After that, I am hoping to continue by writing some fiction as well as writing up some of the memories of my life - which may be horrific to some - I have had a life that many would consider traumatic, in places, but in others it has been just fine and peachy, thank you very much.
