I am a retired man. 73 years old. I have been writing for about 50 years. I am a writer of fiction, both original fiction and fan fiction, along with non-fiction articles. I have written full length novels, novellas and short stories; some of which are self published and have been available for purchase on amazon and kindle for several years. In all that time, less than a dozen copies have been sold. This had led me to the conclusion, that no matter how good anyone's writing is, neither he nor she should quit his or her day job.
When it comes to writing fiction, I see myself as an entertainer and my stories are my performances. When it comes to being an entertainer, I am a natural comedian, and when I am writing fiction, this joker is wild.
So here they are ladies and gentlemen. Whenever you're ready, the Performances are about to begin.
