No, I am not really an author, I just pretend to be one.
Yes, I am still working and studying to improve my skill and craft.
No, I am not afraid of sharing my work. I am a late bloomer and if I wait . . . well, it all might be posthumously published – if ever at all. That just won’t do.
So, here I go exposing all my writing and storytelling attempts. Studying means reading and a lot of writing. It means reading others and my own work. Learning how to edit my own work has been, correction IS, the hardest thing, yet.
If someone, not a friend, not family tells you to study and direct your attention to something you do just because you love it, listen. If I had followed the advice of teachers from high school on and studied grammar, and literature as suggested; well, I wouldn’t be trying to make up for lost time.
Well, I have work to do. Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!
