You're never alone when you're lucky enough to be a part of the writing family.
I've been in Cambridge for a couple of weeks now, trying to find my way -
This is a mandatory part of visiting Cambridge - the beautiful King's College.
But besides the wonders of the city, I've been trying to find ways to make myself useful.
I've been putting out feelers to see if I could help with teaching about careers in the media, or creative writing.
And I'm delighted to say I've been welcomed and offered a range of opportunities.
I would love to be able to claim this is down to my experience and talent, but...
The answer is simpler, more honest, and much more uplifting.
The World of Words is a family.
So it doesn't matter where you are - Devon, Cambridgeshire, or elsewhere.
If you do the writing thing, you'll always be made welcome anywhere because of this wonderful shared passion.
It's something I had no expectation of when I joined the family.
But I'm more and more grateful for it with every passing year.
