Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

The flowers in my flower beds are growing and blooming.

The passion flower vines are growing. Today one bloomed.

My little garden plot is growing, too. I've already made a couple of zucchini harvests.

My work-in-progress, a middle reader novel, has grown to 25,000 words (18 chapters). Only about 15,000 words and two major plot turns to go.

My left hand is growing stronger. The swelling actually makes it feel better and look younger (no wrinkles!).

And I'm growing older. Which certainly beats the alternative.
