Being part of #foundfiction has encouraged me to do even more writing, which has always been my passion. I've written seven #foundfiction stories and distributed envelopes in Glasgow, London and Belarus. I also came down to Leeds for the launch party – it was a lot of fun. I love leaving stories in unusual locations and imagining how it will affect the people who find them. #foundfiction is a fascinating project and it's exciting to be involved in it.
