No!
Yes.
You can’t!
I can.
Why?
Why not?
It’s all wrong!
It’s all right.
You shouldn’t!
I should.
You won’t!
I will.
It could be bad!
It could be good.
It’s too late!
There’s time.
You’re too old!
I’m still here.
You did it!
I did.

Hi, Everybody! I’m Marcia, and I’d like to thank Sue for having me here today. She’s such a wonderful supporter of artists of all kinds, and I’m very pleased to be part of her guest post feature.

The little poem above is one I wrote three years ago, right after I published my first book, at age 69. As you might imagine, it was inspired by a lot of comments I received from folks who thought I was crazy to be attempting something as daunting as writing and self-publishing a novel at my age. I heard every single reason why I…

    • Not to get into a “Thank you”–“No, thank you” kind of thing, but, honestly, Sue, what you’ve offered to writers (and other artists) is a wonderful opportunity. I’m thrilled to be taking part, and I thank YOU for the chance. It was really a pleasure, and I hope you’ll have me back now and then. 🙂 ❤

        • Hopefully, a few of The Write Stuff followers will decide to avail themselves of your generous offer, Sue. Being featured on your great blog is no small thing, and one more way to spread the word about our work. (You folks reading the comments, what are you waiting for?) 🙂 ❤

    • Thank you, Mae. Lest you think I’m a saint, believe me, I have my bad days. I get discouraged from time to time, about all the same things most of us do, and a few I probably just made up to be sure I had enough to complain about. 😉 But usually, that’s all it is. A bad day, not a bad week or month, or lifetime. And the older I get, the more I’m determined to squeeze as much living into the years left to me as I possibly can. That way, there’ll be fewer regrets later. 🙂

    • It was a brief circulation, Deb. Sticking my head up for a moment, happy to have a chance to visit with Sue, and then heading back down the rabbit hole to my current backload of duties. Discovered I had a LOT more to do to get this book ready than I thought, and racing against the clock every day. But I’ll be back for REAL before too much longer. Meanwhile, I’m just doing the best I can. 🙂 Good to see you. Hope you’re still enjoying the Arizona sun. ❤ And glad you enjoyed the post. 🙂

      • I can only imagine where you’re at now getting your new book ready. Still, it’s nice to pop up for air every once in awhile and remind us all about Marsha. 🙂
        Well, it’s become unseasonably hot here, no complaints. Should be mid 70s but now early 90s lol. I am loving it!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 ❤

          Or Marcia, as the case may be! *snort* 😀 😀 😀

          It’s in the 80’s here today, and I can only stay out there about ten minutes, before I’m dying. As far as I’m concerned, whoever invented central air should be canonized! By next month, I won’t be able to stay outside past 9:00am with any degree of comfort at all. GAH!!!! Oh, for a North Carolina mountainside with an ice cold stream, and lots of lush, green ferns. And maybe a smattering of wake-robins in bloom. 😀
