I’ve loved history, literature and philosophy since I was thirteen.
I was thirteen, when my English teacher praised the short story, I submitted, as part of my home work. That moment inspired me to consider writing. I was already fascinated to learn about histories of the world and the great leaders it produced. I’ve always been better with organizing my thoughts with cohesion and writing them down, as opposed, to verbally expressing them. Since then, on and off, I have dabbled with writing, but never with any seriousness.
The year I got my private pilot license, was the next trigger that propelled me towards writing – to record my flying adventures and write about my experiences. That was the year, that I officially started Fly ‘ n Things. That was the year, I started out as the Newsletter editor for the SLO99s.
Since then, I have contributed several articles in Newsletters, SLO99s Slipstream; Santa Clara Chapter 99s Windsock; Southwest Section Newsletter Southwesterly; 99s Magazine; Aviatrix Aerogram; No Map No Guide No Limits; and even a brief stint as a free lance blogger for the very short-lived Forbes Wheels Up Blog.
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) kicks off on November 1st. This year, I’ve decided to get serious, and to take my writing to the next level. I am committing myself to write 50,000 words towards my first novel(s) during NaNoWriMo. I have at least three very different books in mind. This is a terrific way, towards achieving one of my buckletlist items: write a novel.
If not anything else it should be a lot of fun!
