So you want to be a writer …

SACO – Writing, writing, writing. Somehow my life has taken this topsy-turvy turn and now at the age of 54 I am working to reinvent myself again. More than anything, I’d like to spend the next portion (whatever that means) of my life writing. It seems like I’ve been telling stories for as long as I can remember and now that I am officially finished with school, I want to buckle down and put these ideas to good use. Ft. Desoto Along the way, I’d like to share the process of writing and publishing as I experience it. Who knows. This time next year I might be writing about book signings, agents and determining the best outlet for my stories. At least, I hope that’s what happens.

Stay tuned.
