I completed my first draft of my memoir

I completed the first draft of my memoir last night. This morning I started my first revisions and additions. I had planned on taking a week off and to start another project.

Coming to an end, but…

Six more chapters to go to complete the first draft of my memoir. And here I am, I am writing two chapters out of sequence: the second last and one of the other six chapters.

I am working

I have been writing. I am working on my novels: “People Always Ask Me,” “Remains of the Day” (maybe re-titled poly thriller), and “Dragon Fire” (Book 2 of Lendaw Series).

People often asked me: a memoir

Well, this happened today (one of many works I haven't completed):Chapter 1When I was young, as far back as I remember, anyway, people used to ask me, "What's it like to be disabled." At that time, I used to answer, "I just am."A few years later, I would answer, "I don't know any difference, so … Continue reading People often asked me: a memoir
