The Book Corner / Re: So, what are you reading? (2016 edition)
« on: February 25, 2016, 12:40:40 PM »
Recently finished The Glass Castle:A Memoir, Jeannette Walls and Neither Wolf Nor Dog by Kent Nerburn. Currently reading The Scribner Anthology of Contemporary Short Fiction and up next is Journalistic Writing by Robert M. Knight, all on Kindle. Listening to We Wanted to Be Writers and The Outsider by Frederick Forsyth on Audible.
Stacked all around the house are books of short stories or books on writing, photography, etc that I am on my second or subsequent reading of and stacks and boxes of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, etc that I have read all of, much of it a second time, and some of it many times over.

The Book Corner / Re: Any Louis L'Amour Fans Here ?
« on: February 25, 2016, 11:34:06 AM »
Read everything I could get my hands on by Louis L'Amour. Been reading him since back in the sixties. If Louis wrote it and it was published during the last 50 years, I've read it and still have most of his work. My kids and grandkids have got their hands on much of it as they are also real fans. I'm a huge Elmore Leonard fan also.
I think Louis ruined me for most other western writers though over the years, there have been a few individual books that I really liked.
Always wanted to get my hands on the book of poetry he wrote but never could find a copy of it.

Introductions & Welcomes / Greetings

I've just found this site and find it very interesting. Downloaded my first Kindle player about a year ago and have since become addicted. It's on my computer, my laptop, my iPad and my iPhone. I go nowhere without it.
I used to write when I was very young, have continued to keep journals over the years, and now I want to try my hand at writing fiction, hoping to create something publishable. Trouble is, now that I'm retired, I have less time than I did when I was working 60+ hours a week and raising five kids.
I'm hear to learn and encourage so, "Hi everybody!"
