I have often been asked when I started writing. The answer--probably as soon as I was able to hold a pencil. I loved to read; by fifth grade I had read all the books in our school library, and I think that writing was a natural progression. I remember that sometimes I was unhappy with the way a story ended.
One time I brought a book home from the library. It was the story of romance between a young lady and a cowboy. They had their usual problems, and in the end he rode away. I recall crying and was so unhappy, that I carefully cut the last chapter from the book, and rewrote it with the couple living happily ever after. I glued this better ending in. Then returned it to the library, very pleased with myself.
I enjoy chronicling the world of my youth--sharing the times and problems that we encountered, being careful to not to make a better ending.
My life is naturally divided into three periods--youth, marriage and children, and retirement years. Each section is about the equal length of time. So I see three books in my future.
