While traveling from my home here in E. Texas to my hometown in California last week, I had the distinct feeling that I was a "big old sponge". I kept soaking up sights, sounds, smells, and was overjoyed at the people and especially the chivalrous men who jumped from their seats in trains and in airports to assist me with luggage. The entire trip brought me home with renewed joy at the integrity of so many people who entered the circle of my world...names that will never be known but their willingness to assist endeared them to me..gave me greater faith in the humanity shown. Hooray! All of these observations gave me fodder for my writing and poetry.
Happily organizing for blog posts and additional chapters to my novels. Brycan's Wood. Circle Of Two. No-tears In Manhattan and A Winter Diva.
I am in this age group. We are still going strong.
Want to write a memoir. Feel I lack the necessary "maturity" (I'm 62) on some rather recent troubling events, but if I wait TOO long, my memory might weaken as to details. It already has to a certain extent. Yet I feel I'm just beginning to grow in certain areas and will likely integrate my personality to the point where I know I will be ready. Can any of you identify with this?
71 and just beginning my first book, a compilation of columns I wrote while editor of our local weekly paper. The site has give me such encouragement in just a few visits. Look forward to more discussions.
I I published my first book at 79. My website will tell you all all y.... I have written for a long time, so I feel comfortable telling you that I notice a big difference in my writing style. I love being 80 and still growing!
