Making Changes, But Writing Forever

By Jackie King

Why does everything always happen at once? I decided to downsize, sell my 4-bedroom house here in Tulsa, and move to a retirement apartment. (Without any intentions at all of retiring, of course.) The great thing about being a writer is that you never have to retire. All you need is a computer hookup with a printer and all is well.

This all sounded so reasonable in the planning stage. Then, after returning to the state writer’s conference in Norman, OK (OWFI) I contracted pneumonia, and all plans became very complicated. On top of all of that, my darling granddaughter Lauren was scheduled to be graduated from high school, and celebrations were planned.

But nonetheless, I’ve been soldiered onward and am now settled (somewhat) into my new apartment. I still have to put up a storyboard and set up a writing schedule. Now I’m eager to get started working once again.

Hugs to all my readers,

Jackie, I'm so sorry to learn that you've been so sick. I hope you're feeling much better by now in your new apartment, and back at the computer writing.
