I took a writing course when I was, well let’s put it this way, I was past my prime. What I discovered was that not everyone can write novels and even fewer people get the chance to have them published. And, too, I discovered that while taking a writing course enhances the skills you already have and teaches you some necessary techniques it does not necessarily make you a writer

I can’t write novels but I do write articles; many have been published. I am trying to expand my writing horizons a bit but don’t intend to give up writing about my grandchildren. It’s like keeping a journal.
