I sit here at my desk in my apartment typing away on my computer, as I have done every day for the past five years. I didn’t start pursuing my interest in writing until a year after I retired for the eight-to-five office working world. I spent several years writing and taking workshops through Romance Writers of America and Savvy Authors to improve my writing. I am now self-published on Amazon. And I still take writing workshops to continually learn and to improve my skill.
Since learning how to publish on Amazon through Kindle Direct Publishing, the thought of turning the control of my “babies” over to other people when I can retain the control no longer interests me. Who knew I’d become such a control freak?
There was a learning curve involved, both with publishing on Amazon and with doing my own website. There have been times when I thought that if I’d known how exhausting learning how to do these things was I never would have embarked on this journey.
But now I’m glad I pursued learning how to self publish and how to create my own website. I have stories in me that demand to be told. And I continue to learn.
I’m 70 years old. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
