Starting Late

Today I blogged over at Canadian Writers Who Are Christian, as I do once a month. At this blog, fellow authors, members of The Word Guild, explore their writing life and open a window for you into God’s world and his salvation.

My post, Starting Late, focuses on how I began to write.

 

Diane Amento Owens of Wise Women Write “considers herself a late bloomer and is proof that it’s never too late to begin writing.” I’m so in there with her. I, too, started later in life, although there were signs along the way that it could come to pass. And yet if someone had told me in elementary school that I’d one day be writing for publication, I would not have believed it.

Writing wasn’t presented as an option at that time as were careers in teaching, nursing or secretarial work. And motherhood. From an early age I wanted to be a teacher, and a love of reading and good books has been with me, even if the number of books in our home was quite small at that time—unlike my current collection.
