The Writer's Life

I have a number of writing projects going on. I just finished a thriller that I sent off to my agent. We’ll see what happens with that one. I’m now in the process of rewriting and expanding the first novel in a new geezer-lit mystery series. I’m also working on a short story to submit for consideration for a Mystery Writers of America anthology. Then I’m preparing two workshops to give at the Northern Colorado Writers Conference in March. I continue to give my presentation, Aging and Other Minor Inconveniences, to groups—one retirement home and two service organizations scheduled next week. I was thinking this morning about the contrast between having a day job and being retired to write full time. One difference I can find is now I work seven days a week instead of five. But it's on my terms!
