Leigh Doughty

Bonjourno everyone

This is being written from Lincoln, England. My name’s Leigh Doughty, and I’m a writer

Writing is one of my main passions in life. Reasons for this are unknown. But ever since I was 17 I felt compelled to read and express my thoughts. Whether I did the latter verbally or by writing wouldn’t matter, just as long as I was expressing how I felt.

I’ve been writing on and off for the last 4 years now. I attempted to write a novel at 17 but that never manifested. In truth I was overwhelmed at the prospect at having to write so much. Another problem was I couldn’t describe action efficiently and beautifully. So I quit.

Though over the years I would always write down my thoughts and quick little poems.

Now I’ve decided to take it up a notch once again and push for something a little more stimulating.

My favourite writers are: Vladimir Nabokov, Neale Donald Walsch and Danny Wallace. And my all time favourite novel has to be Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom.

That’s all for now. All the best, Leigh.
