Hello Fellow Writers, I began writing like most, in my preteens, lounging, with all the time in the world, in the poetry box car. I continued writing prose and poetry until 2014 when my focus turned to puppet skits in the cattle car. (most of the puppets are animals that are used for a Children Ministry -wink) My husband suggested that I try my hand at writing a short story. I am now relaxing, leaning back on a seat in he passenger car, after recently completing rewrites. I hope to send it to an English teacher to help with grammar, etc. I will also ask friends to read it for their opinion if the story line flows and if it kept their interest. I am also 'cleaning up' my puppet skits in the water tanker for possible publishing. This is a new journey on the rails for me. So any tips regarding the need for an Editor, how to self publish, etc. would be greatly appreciated. I live near Columbus, OH, work on a Call Team for a major Health carrier, ring hand bells, sing in the choir, spend endless hours in my flowers bed when the Ohio weather permits, and head over heels for my husband, a church music director and music teacher. Hopefully by youngest daughter, from previous marriage, will give me a grandchild before I am dragged scratching and kicking to the caboose. While my other adult children continue their day by day and throw morsels of what's happening in their lives to me on Facebook.
