Today I found a blog site, well to be more accurate I re-found a site which I first discovered in July this year. The title was the thing that attracted me as it bears the name which has been mine for fifty years, of course my surname is very common, especially in the area in which I live, the north-east of England. It shocked me to discover another woman lives in this same north-east with my name, not exactly but the initial and the surname are mine, V Watson, her name is Victoria whereas mine is Vera. She is a writer and an editor and a young woman. Frankly I am furious, how can this be? I’m a unique, singular person. To add insult to injury she is a published writer and I sit here conjuring up words with readers in single figures. Life is so unfair!!!
Admittedly I’m not very structured and thorough in my way of working, as my namesake may say, “Elementary my dear Watson”.
I have been a teacher and a lecturer for a number of years. I am married with two sons. I'm interested drama, films, TV, books, society in general, poverty and riches and political systems.
