|From Google, the car looked similar to this but was much more shabbier.|
Today a short piece, mostly based on reality has been published at Silver Birch Press. My story is about the first time I got behind the wheel of a car, and is part of Silver Birch Press's learning to drive series.

First Gear Dilemmas was originally written a few years ago as a much large piece, alongside other car stories based on Ebay adventures and driving mishaps, and were going to be part of a book sized project meant for only one person - that has now gone on the back burner but as soon as I saw the submissions call from Silver Birch Press I knew I needed to pluck up the courage and delve into the 6k worth of words which I had written.
The original person who I wrote this story for will probably not read it but at least the one or two readers of this blog will. I hope you enjoy reading about my first time driving a car.
