I'm a late bloomer, as far as writers go. I've always felt the urge to write, but life always seemed to have other plans.
I've been a manual worker, a business owner (more than once), a musician, a full-time carer to my late wife for 30 years, a driver – the list seems endless.
Always, the desire to write was there. Over the years, I've written short stories and articles. I've been published once or twice but nothing to brag about. A recent interest has been SEO copywriting for the internet, and website building. I have two affiliate marketing websites at the moment.
After my supposed retirement, I enrolled in a Comprehensive Writing course by correspondence. At the time of writing this, (Mar 2020) I've recently finished the first draft of my first novel. Hopefully, the first of several.
