I am an old lady. I guess some young people would think of me that way. I am in my late 50s and I started writing a childs book last November. I was the dunce of every class at school and I only recently spruced up my writing a little in the past few months. My writing was very bad before. Now I think I may just get by. My vocabulary is not very wide either and my grammar is most certainly not perfect but I am trying. I was browsing the net not long ago and came across this web site so I decided to join. I had a strong desire to write a book over twenty years ago but I had my reasons why I chose not to go ahead with it. Last November when I started writing a book I made up my mind I would not stop until I finish it. I have recently had a few set backs though. Someone recently told me to take out the caps in my book. I was rather upset over that, because I use caps in my book when someone is shouting and I use bold print if someone is talking loud. Well, I may be getting off topic so I will stop for now. My problem is; when I start talking or writing I don't stop. I have been told I am a good yacker.
