My Words, My World

First drafts – A few pages in the large wilderness of the world of writing


ChrisI’m an ocean-loving Englishman living in landlocked Switzerland.  I’ve been here with my girlfriend since 2001 and we now consider this home.

I have always loved the written word, so much so that I still correspond with certain people with a pen and paper!!  Do you know how hard it is to buy real writing paper nowadays?

After leaving the wilds of Kent I moved to London, a bit like Dick Whittington but without the cat, searching for streets of gold.  I happened upon a wonderful Italian lady who later decided to take me with her to the sunny realm of southern Switzerland, where I can still be found, sometimes with a drink in hand, continuously in search of my muse.  I know he’s here…somewhere.

I long to make a living writing but…even if it’s not a living I make, satisfaction I gratefully take.

Voila!  Further information may be obtained by…asking questions.

Thank you for taking the time to read through.

  1. Hi Chris, nice intro. Ask the wonderful Italian lady to take you further south into northern Italy, the lakes, the alps, the appenini and further down… 😉 it’s so beautiful and you should not miss it! I spent wonderful winters on the mediterranean sea on the riviera cause I love the oceans and the sea as well. Give it a try, its a perfect place for inspiration and quiet writing. So says another Italian lady…

    • Buongiorno Anna, great to hear from you. I go often down to Piemonte and Liguria, as her folks come from that region. Winter in Liguria is fantastic, it has its own micro-climate. I’ve yet to write there though.

  2. Hi! *waves* from Kent!
    Thanks for the follow and likes! I look forward to reading some more of your posts!

  5. I like your ‘about’ and I’ve already promised myself, if the next World War or War Of The Word’s is nigh, I will make sure I spent it in Switzerland 😉
    have a good one with or without muse, though I’m sure s/he is wherever you are 🙂

  6. A presto Christopher 🙂
