My name is Ricky. I’m a writer from Sheffield, England. Welcome to my blog. Hope you like it. Let me know what you think.

After months of not knowing what to call the blog, I finally came up with Writing Me Up, which I feel reflects the aims of the blog:

  • the need to write up the words that come to me;
  • the way that writing lifts me up and raises my spirits – even when I’m stuck for words;
  • how writing rightens my mind, which can wander into dark corners if it isn’t given something constuctive and creative to do.

Please have a look around. There’s lots to see. Try picking a month from the Archives, or choosing a Tag from the Tag Cloud, or one of the Categories. I do it myself, sometimes. It’s quite entertaining.

You can find me in other places, too.
