I am 48 and have never took writing seriously. But, I have been told off and on over the years that I put words together well. I do not know about that but do enjoy it some and thought I might try to write a few short stories here to solicit impartial feedback. I live in West Texas with my gorgeous wife. Our three adult kids live close by. Kudos to the web site creators for providing a place for novices to test the waters.
