Age when I decided I wanted to be a writer: 9 (started a diary)
First short story written: 6th grade (Footsie Island)
Age when I started working on a word processor: Not until at least 34, unless you count stealing time at law firms where I worked as a secretary.
Age submitted short story to a mag, sold one, number sold: have written a few short stories, not published any.
Sold a poem: you mean the first time an editor paid me money for a poem? My mid-30s?
Poems sold: maybe a dozen? (Average payment: $20, if a payment at all).
Year of first book: 1999
Books pubbed: 2
In print: one definite, one semi (you can find it used pretty easily, though)
Am I writing more since my 401 (K) tanked and it got really cold here in Seattle? Yes, I believe I am. Every free minute I've been editing a poem I started last February. It is almost finished, so not sure what will happen next, but probably I'll start editing the other unfinished ones on my pile (I have about 6). I have been reading actual books (even if it's only for five minutes at a time) and going to the library a ton. And eating more at home. And shopping more at Trader Joe's. And checking to see if Ebay has it. And bartering. And we joined a babysitting COOP. How about you?
