First blog (true story)
As the title says, this is my very first blog or post, what ever it is, on my new website. I’m a disabled carpenter with COPD, that’s my main disability. I’ve been in the carpentry field over 41 years and I feel I’m done with that field and ready to move on. The direction I’m heading into is writing, so at the age of 60 I’m stepping out there. I have two fantastic sons, two grand sons and one grand daughter. More to come on all these characters later.
I have returned to school for fun, which I think is pretty cool. College of Southern Maryland (CSM) has accepted me as a returning student. I hope to learn how to write The Great American Novel. I am lucky enough to be published my first time out. CSM has a literary magazine called, Connections, and it is published twice a year. My first short story will be published on May 1, 2015. It’s called Family Doctor and I am so tickled! I know pride goeth before a fall, so I know to check myself. I hope I’m not a one hit wonder. I have a lot to learn, so please leave comments of constructive criticism.
When I get the link to Family Doctor I will post it.
