I began writing short stories, both fiction and non-fiction, in the late eighties. Published some, but also accumulated a desk drawer full of rejections. Finally tired of the: "Not for us," "Like story, but have too many similar," "Closed to submissions for the next two years." Anyhow, I chucked it all, gave up and sat around with my finger up my nose. Then with the dawning of the age of e-publishing, I dusted off Microsoft Word and went at it again in 2010. I have a lot of stories in me, but at my current age I'll have to hurry. The photo is of my best friend, Violet, and me celebrating sixty-one-years of marriage.
Coming in the near future "The MacDoon Mission". The adventures of a Presbyterian missionary's son in the Chippawa Nation of Minnesota during the 1800s.
