I have been writing stories all my life. In my younger days I use to tell myself stories as I worked. I never wrote them to paper. Why you might ask. My answer would be because I wasn't any good at writing. I could write the book in my head, but putting it to paper was just too difficult for me.
Just before I divorced, I found myself writing stories and incorporating real events in my stories. It was kind like a diary for me. I could read the story and link it to my real life. I guess that is when you might say I started to enjoy writing.
In my early 30's I gave birth to my last child, my son, and I started to lose my hearing. Not long after that I filed for divorce and became my own person. Now I found I could write anything I wanted to write without trying to hide the content from anyone else. However, I was still a really bad writer. A friend told me about a site called Fanstory. I decided to try it to see if my writing could improve. I am happy to report that it did!
After that I decided to see if I was smart enough for college. Today, I have 3 different college degrees. I can't say I've used the degrees as I once intended to use them; nonetheless, I worked hard to a quire them, and I am proud that I was able to achieve that goal later in my life with two children to support on my own and bills I had to pay out of my own pocket.
I was born and bred in the great state of Ohio. Today, I live in the beautiful state of Pennsylvania. My boyfriend and I have a small farm with rabbits,4 cats, free roaming chickens, a cute little dog named Susie and pigs. In the future we are planning to bring on some cows as well ducks. We grow our own garden in the summer and have a great time tending it for food in the winter. I've always been interested in living off the grid and the amazing state of Alaska. One of my goals in life, before I die or can't do it anymore, is to take a cruise to the amazing state of Alaska. So, I'd better hurry up and get there. I am after all 54 at present. Time is running out!
