I recently retired from my job of the last 30 years to spend more time with my wife and to relax. I have always thought about writing and even began a novel about my family in the Civil War years ago. I wrote about six chapters and then something happened and I put it aside and never pick it back up. Now being retired and moving to the river, I have more time to to get back into writing. Now I am going to try to write something about life on the river.
