How ridiculous. Now retired, with the goal of finishing my novel, too often I let other things, from ping pong to biking the beautiful trails in Southern Georgian Bay, slow me down. They are almost as enjoyable as writing. Still I did it once. I completed my first book. Hopeful Steps, a collection of stories from my two years volunteering in Guyana, is available through www.volumesdirect.com and indigo.ca. Now one of my pieces has been accepted by CommuterLit. So, no more excuses. Onward and upward.
