Writers Handy Notebook
Thank you for visiting my site. Working on getting my first novel length book finished. This site as well is a work in progress...

As a lifelong reader, my personal library is about as varied as it gets. You'll find non-fiction, fiction, biographies. I am also a reader of history...especially WWII subjects.

I appreciate the encouraging and positive comments left on this site from others, who like me, struggle for quality writing time while working full time, and juggling the other necessities in life.  


Getting to it!

       That picture to the right pretty much sums up my writing productivity during the past 38 years. Yes, you read that right, 38 years.

I've always loved reading as far back as I can remember. It was sometime back in 1982 that the thought of writing came about. Back then, before all this great tech came along, my first attempt at writing was done on an old Smith Corona manual typewriter. I actually still have it, along with an electric typewriter. Both of those are tucked away in a closet and haven't been used in years.

         Today it's laptops, an Apple Imac, and a great piece of software for writers called Scrivener. So, after wasting half a lifetime, I have decided to get to it in a serious way. Wish me luck...
