thornwood's picture
Stephen Daly

I want to write a novel which represents art not literature.this I strive to do. My writing trys to cover real social issues usually representitive of the most oppressed and discriminiated against in the uk. These issues have been my life.

Drug addiction issues
Homelessness issues
Mental health issues
Supported housing issues
Relationship issues

My advice.
Never give up.
Speak up.
The west sacraficed many lifes over centurys to deliver democracy and free speach.
Do not be shy.

If you experiment or choose to use street drugs be very carefull.

DO NOT USE heroin or cocaine. They fuck you up proper so do not use these two ever. If I had child I would say use clean cannabis not skunk. Educate yourself via the internet about cannabis. If you choose to use drugs be very carefull and use once or twice a month maybe smoke a few joints but is best living life drug free.

Goverment drug policys destroyed my life dont let them do it to yours. Be strong always.

Do not be scared.
Do not accept fear.

There is an intelligent creative afterlife awaiting us when we leave this earth.

Forgive
Unconditional love
Neighbour
Friend
Hope
Grace
Harmony
Humanity

Us.

Peace.
