I recently moved house, and in the packing I found a booklet I had to write at the end of Primary School, reflecting on the past and predicting the future goals. And my predictions? I would be a Children's Writer by the age of 31, maybe with a few kids, a couple of cats and a pet rabbit. The only thing I didn't get right was the children bit.
I didn't need any more confirmation that I was doing the right thing in becoming a full time writer, but it's nice to know that I am fulfilling my childhood dreams.
Thanks, childhood Ash!
