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 “my story” which I prepared for my girls because during this time, my father died and I realized I didn’t 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. It’s taken me, more or less, 10 years but it’s finally finished. I’ve also written several short stories.
I’d like to get my mystery published. I’ve actually begun a sequel and have in mind a series based on the characters I’ve invented. But before I start the publishing quest, I’d like to have what I’ve written critiqued. I’ve not shared what I’ve written with anyone yet.
So, here in my “golden years”, I’m beginning a new quest. It’s exciting and whether or not I’ve got the talent to succeed is yet to be proven. But I’m convinced the Lord wants me to push ahead.
