Who the heck ever said writing is glamorous, creative, fun and natural? It's the hardest, loneliest, most unpredictable work one can ever wish for, and one could put in an existence doing and NEVER even earn a dime or get read much less be accepted as an author. Moreover, there is the NEVER ENDING learning process of refining, editing, and marketing! But as one writer to another, could you, would you, do anything else? I started my writing "vocation" (if one could call it that) after I raised three children, a husband and retired from 30 years of going to college while working an 8-5 and at times an extra job. What the heck! Am I nuts or what?
