I am a 45 year old wife, mother and grandmother. I am very articulate. I have been creative in writing since I was very young. I think of Ernest Hemingway when he stated in "Death in the Afternoon", A serious writer is not to be confounded with a solemn writer. A serious writer may be a hawk or a buzzard or even a popinjay, but a solemn writer is always a bloody owl. And I am a perfectionist. There has not been anything in my life that I have set out to do that I have not achieved!
