I read, therefore I write. Like many other writers, I started writing because I love reading. Even before I could read, books fascinated me.
I loved the smell of the basement library where my mother took me for Saturday morning story hour. And soon I became a voracious, omnivorous reader, continuing to this very day more than seventy-five years later.
Like many readers, I soon became a critic. After attempting to read a book and giving up in frustration, I'd think: I could write as well--or better--than this. Of course, I didn't try, until two things occurred.
My tech-toy addicted spouse want a new state-of-the-art computer and I needed a new knee. I suggested he set up his old desktop for me and I'd practice on that, since I'd be on restricted activity for a couple of months. As these things usually went, I ended up with a new XP loaded with bells and whistles.
I wonder how many books have been attempted since the advent of word processors? I had it and I learned to use it, no more excuses. In the last several years I've completed five books and three WIP. This is my first venture into self-publishing, but I plan to make others available. Look for others soon on SMASHWORDS.
