I'm 64 years young and I've never taken a writing class of any kind, although I've written many stories and poems in my head over the years. In the mid-nineties I began writing poetry; then it was immature, sort of child-like, and also I didn't know anything about stanzas etc. I kept on writing and years down the road I noticed how my writing had changed. Ultimately it was maturing. I may not have the makings of an author but I do enjoy the process, hence I will continue writing and with your input hopefully I'll contiue to progress. I've never shown anything I've written to anyone other than my husband, so this is a big step for me. Thank you in advance for any input.
