I am 74 and raised my kids as a widow since I was 40, I wanted to major in English or Journalism but my parents required me to major in something where I could be assured a job -- education. I have been writing all my life and until now have not had the time or discipline to focus on an entire novel. I have lived in several parts of the US and feel that I have a lot of life experiences that I can write about. In the writing classes I have been taking since I retired
my classmates are younger than my children and I can't seem to write in the genre of their interests.
