Webster’s Dictionary defines Immature as; not mature, not completely developed, not finished or perfect. It defines senior as; older, of higher rank or service. We like to think of ourselves as not finished and of higher rank! Many of us are projects still in the works, and we have been at it for a long time! We feel young at heart and thus consider ourselves Immature Seniors.

I awoke to find the day heavy with cloud and rain. Feeling a bit restless I decided to write about writing. A few people have asked me what it is like writing a book. More than one seem to think it a process done in a few months. Not so, at least not for me. Most of my books were written long ago, almost all are snippets of ideas recorded on scrap paper and put away for years. Some began as dreams I had over the years, dreams that repeat and fill out. Back in the mid 1990′s I started to put my ideas onto floppy discs. Some of them have gone corrupt, so what was inside had been lost. Many though were still good. Over the years I slowly transferred the stories onto my more modern computer. Often I could only work in short bursts, twenty or so minutes, perhaps at best three times a day, due to my illness. I still work that way, so it takes time. Well before the new millennium I had amassed nearly a dozen stories, all unfinished and unedited. During the last fourteen years I have begun to fill out the basic bones, edit and update. Which is why it has taken so long to get any of them published, not that I didn’t have a few close calls along the way. The two works now published -ESCAPE FROM CHICKAMAUGA and TURNING POINTS- were both written before nine eleven. The civil war tale started in mid 1990. Turning Points came about after a bombing of a building I had read about in the papers. Both these works did get favorable responses from publishers. But circumstances prevented their publication until now. I find inspiration can arrive from the most unexpected places. Dreams, events, even a tale told to me by an good friend about local ghosts! At present I am working mainly on editing old works, though I have a few ideas waiting in the wings. These will likely have to wait until the fall to be worked on as the days are getting warmer, and outside ventures are calling us. Until then I will continue to record my dreams and ideas with the hopes that some day soon they will grow into books.
