I am a writer as well...I have notebooks filled with poems and diaries from the 80s. I sometimes
go back and read them. I've kept most of them. When word processing came around, I was
thrilled. I had an old typewriter that I used but the thought of just pushing delete or backspace
was brilliant. However, I do believe the "art" of writing is lost on the young. My son, who is
20, can barely write a letter. He's a whiz with computers, etc...but writing forget it!
Quendi....pm me about your novel. I am working on one as well and I would be interested to
hear about yours. Mine is a crime novel..quite appropriate, since I've been a court stenographer
for 20 years.
