As of Friday, December 30, 2011, I retired from the workaday world of employment, embarking on this new quest of freelance writing.
I've been more or less steadily employed since 1965... that's 47 years for those counting. Sometimes part-time, sometimes full-time, never amounting to a career and always interesting.
I started writing in high school, that would be 1964, with pencil on legal pads, then on a portable typewriter my Mother gave me for Christmas (Whatever happened to it?) I stuill have thpose early scribblings, "cloud" writing, articles published in the lcoal newspaper and regional house organs.
Now it's time to return to my first avocation.
