I learned that from the numerous Bowie gigs I have attended down the years. He always made an entrance, from being lowered down onto the stage on a set based on a giant spider, to a simple walk-on playing Space Oddity.
So do I have your attention ? I have absolutely no idea how this all works, so here goes …..
Today is my very first day at this office. In fact, being a literary virgin, you could say its my first day at any office. You see, I have never done this before, I feel … unsure what I am supposed to do.
Nobody at this office was expecting me today. You could say I turned-up unannounced – but now I am here I hope to make an impression, make some friends and progress my career.
If you had interviewed me, you would have learned that I am a 53 year old divorced guy with two grown-up children who now live away. I live alone in Lancashire UK and have plenty of spare time on my hands – particularly during the weekday evenings. I am employed as a Management Accountant, I enjoy music, football (soccer if you like), reading, movies and crime thrillers.

Well, writing is something that has interested me for a few years now. I have written one or two things for a bit of fun, and always received a positive response .
