Childhood Dreams 1: The Novel, & The Secret Bookcase by Secret Scribles In London

My dream as a child was always to be an author. I dreamed about writing novels, books for children, short stories and poems. I wrote half a novel when I was about 8 years old, about my Grandma’s cat Kitty. I leant to touch type so that I could get my thoughts down on paper more quickly. Then life took over… I studied literature but ended up working in healthcare. Now I’m a full time stay at home parent and my son is getting older, so maybe I can find some time now to bring my dreams back into the fore…

I also used to dream about a room in my house, previously undiscovered, full of books which I never knew I had. I still have this dream now – it’s one of my favourite dreams, like a fantasy of discovering my own secret library. Books are my one true love, after all.–Secret Scribbles In London
