A chance encounter to be counted upon
How Jane Moore, The Sun columnist, indirectly inspired my writings in 2015

Whereupon, I was told, by the newsagent – while unofficially browsing – “if you’re not careful, you’ll read the print off the page” –
His remark inspired me to write the first in a fantasy collection of stories within #GirlRogues: Braggadocio, titled: “You’ll Notice Me, Cos I’m Not Dressed As A Playing Card” – telling the story of two sisters who roam the boundaries of the page, found. Though their bond reveals a hidden truth in plain sight.
Have you found writing inspiration from a chance encounter – later to be counted upon?
