Hi Folks well decided to let you know a bit about how I got into writing and things. It actually happened around 20 some years ago. I always had the urge to write, just never knew how to get started. So, decided on just sitting down and doing it. MY first bit of writing was my Biography which turned out pretty good. I then decided on writing short stories of something I knew like, farming, woodworking you name it. Ended up I got to writing of my past life experiences and my old Dad’s and Grandfathers. We all have had quite a life. If there was any advice I could give to any one that wants to be a writer would be this. Write what you know and you can’t go wrong. Today I look forward to sitting down and writing up a story or two and it always gives me a good feeling inside when done. I write now for different Newspapers and magazines. I am currently working on putting out my first book which should take place next summer, should. Not cheap doing that I have found, and it takes a lot of work getting things done up right. I think I am half way there. I have planned on taking around 60 of my stories and using them for my book, time will tell how that goes. My son Karl put a link on The Old Craftsman’s web site www.theoldcraftsman.com for those that are interested in Pre-registering for the book. Once the book is published and those that have signed up, will then be notified and the book will be mailed out to you or you can pick it up. Following this post I will put on a story called, Country Woman. Kind of figured I should let the folks see how I write. Also if you want further stories to look at there is another link on the Old Craftsman’s site which says Just One More Story. Click on that and it will show you a list of around 300 stories with a blip of each one. Can’t beat that huh? Talk Later.
