Freshly retired quasi tech type looking to indulge a life long dream of being a writer. I've been dabbling for years, ok over 5 decades, and just never had what it took to dedicate myself to the nuts and bolts part of the process. Finding things like agents, editors and publishers never fit in with having to working for a living. Yup, pretty lame excuse but it's all I have left at this point. So I'm just going to grit my teeth and jump in here.
