Writing is the best youth serum I have ever found.It keeps my mind young. I started writing in October and wrote two novels and started a third.Since finding this site, I have started writing short stories and I'm learning so much more about writing. And I have decades of experience to cull from.
I feel like I'm ready to jump in and polish up my novels, now.
My favorite Authors are:
Mary Higgins Clark
So, as you can see, I love murder mysteries, detective stories and thrillers. That is the genre I am trying to write in. I have a very active imagination and love putting a weird twist in my stories.
When I was much younger, I loved:
Edgar Allen Poe
H. P, Lovecraft
I'm not sure I could still read Lovecraft. He was totally insane.
I love quotes from Will Rogers.
"Never miss a good chance to shut up."
"If you find yourself in a hole, quit digging"
"Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement."
and I can't leave out:
"There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves."
All wisdom by Will Rogers.
I know some of you on this list are old enough to remember.
I would love to trade reviews with anyone interested in this type of writing. My only hope is to live long enough to see something I wrote in print.
