I’m a mother, grandmother, retired teacher, and humor writer who has written two books that were so bad the manuscripts are in the dark recesses in my “archives” file drawer behind the 20-year-old divorce papers and 10 years of tax returns. On the bright side, I have had success publishing humor essays. I’m working on my third book, a romance-comedy-mystery. I have learned much in the years I’ve studied creative writing, but I have much more to learn. Fortunately, for me, a woman of many words, writer’s block is not a problem. My problem is taking the time to sit and write. Now that I’m retired, that is what I intend to do–write every day. I’m over 60 and have much to say. So many words to write, so little time left to write them.
