I have been writing all of my life. I guess I started with assignments I was told to write in my many different grade schools. We moved a lot back in the Great Depression days so during my early education, I went to 13 different schools. Later, when I was away in the US Navy, I wrote newsy, homesick letters to my parents at home. I also wrote lots of love letters to my girlfriends back home. Then after I got out of the Navy, I went to college (at night) under the GI Bill, and I was required to write on a variety of subjects while taking a number of different classes. Another time, I got a job as a creative copywriter of sales letters for an advertising agency in Dayton, OH. Later I went in business for myself where I used mail order sales letters to sell some of my business type inventions. One time the pastor of my church, after he heard that I was a writer, asked me to write inspirational messages for the back of the church's weekly bulletin. I did that for about thirty years. So what you read here are just a few of the stories I've accumulated over my many years of all kinds of experience and writing.

In short, I think writing stories is often quite difficult, but also I find it very enjoyable as well as fun filled, and satisfying "work."
