I have been writing since sixth grade,mostly short stories. Remember the old correspondence courses for writing novels? I enrolled in two, but never completed either one. Marriage, teaching, and children took over my writing life. Now that I'm retired, I'm into it full time and had the luck of winning several contests outside of FS and being published in small periodicals.
