55 and up

A little corner of my writing space
Somehow or other, Thursday was my 55th birthday. I have no idea how that happened. I think that every year, but 55? Really? That puts me in a whole new age category, the dreaded "55 and up."

There is some news, though. Nothing definite yet, but an offer of a publishing contract from a small publishing co-op. It's worth thinking about. Even if I had literary agents clamoring for my book, and even if they sold it right out of the gate (which wouldn't be likely), it wouldn't be published for at least a year.

I'm thinking it over, and a lawyer friend is reviewing the contract. I'll know more soon.

Happy Birthday! 55 wasn't bad for me, but somehow when 56 came around a few months ago it seemed a bit more ominous! Your book adventure is the perfect thing to prove that you have a lot more in you to share, and it is just a number!

Happy belated birthday! 55 is a very good age . . . seems like a long time ago for me (will be 64 in July). You'll find you're eligible for more senior discounts now! And who doesn't love a discount?!

Happy birthday! and good luck with the book.

Those of us who have had a number of "speed limit" birthdays rationalize by saying it's not that bad. The truth is that it's not that bad unless you allow your body to degrade so you can't enjoy life. Happy 55th.
