Winging It is the personal site of me, Siobhan Lawper. I’m a 30 something living in Birmingham UK, and I write for a living.
Sadly, books and movies lied to me, and I’m not spending my days curled up with a laptop and a golden retriever, typing out my next best selling novel.
Instead, I’m banging furiously away at my keyboard typing up web pages for luxury yachts, artificial grass, and cleaning services. Glamorous, my life is not.
Still though, I still want to write when I’m not earning a crust. Here’s where I talk about anything and everything that catches my attention. Could be current affairs, the state of online shopping, or whatever I’ve caught on Netflix this week. This is basically a fancy way of writing ‘I don’t know what I’m going to write about yet.’
I’ve called the blog ‘Winging It’ because that’s basically what I do. Do I know anything about the workings of the internal combustion engine? Nah, but I’ll have a go at writing about it anyway. Have I ever cut my own fringe before? Nope, but I’ve got the scissors so let’s try it. I’m a great believer in giving it a google and then having a go.
This means I fall on my face a lot. It also means I learn a lot of new things every day. Hopefully I’ll be able to pass on a bit of that knowledge here. Or, at the very least, be entertaining.
We can at least hope for that, right?
