Several years ago, the Lord redirected my life taking me in directions I had not anticipated. During this time, I began writing. My first attempt was ďmy storyĒ which I prepared for my girls because during this time, my father died and I realized I didnít really know all that much about him. I did not want this to be the case with my four daughters so I wrote for them my life history.
In preparing this, I discovered I enjoyed writing. I have enjoyed reading all my life, but especially mysteries, ala Agatha Christi. I wondered if I could write a mystery so I began trying. Itís taken me, more or less, 10 years but itís finally finished. Iíve also written several short stories.
Iíd like to get my mystery published. Iíve actually begun a sequel and have in mind a series based on the characters Iíve invented. But before I start the publishing quest, Iíd like to have what Iíve written critiqued. Iíve not shared what Iíve written with anyone yet.
So, here in my ďgolden yearsĒ, Iím beginning a new quest. Itís exciting and whether or not Iíve got the talent to succeed is yet to be proven. But Iím convinced the Lord wants me to push ahead.
