You're only as young as you feel.  Or something. ;)

I'm right there with you, Dave. I turned 49 this October. But we ladies of a certain age on here, sure don't act it, right, girls?

unless we're in france, where they like women of certain ages...

HOWEVER, the whole cougar thing seems to be taking off, so, maybe we should sit back and growl provocatively at the men here and see what happens!
be nice to me or zombies will eat you in my novel

I am very impressed with your log of submissions and the actions that your queries have birthed. Upon comparison, I find that I am in the sink as far as luck goes. I will follow your postings and advice more closely, because you seem to have a good streak of positive action with your queries. Nevertheless, I have learned a great deal about this animal called 'commercial writing'. As you know I write military manuals, though I have a readership in the hundreds of thousands, no one knows who I am or cares. The system of review and comment the military requires is very stringent and not very flexible. So, by the time a manual that I have written is published it has been beat to death, resurrected and beaten again by many dozens of experts. After I have finished the draft, I generally don't have much to do with it anymore. Another team takes it and applies the mandated adjustments learned from the review and comment process. So, writing a fiction novel is a pleasure and a great release. The work doesn't bother me at all. It is my goal to learn as much as I can via this venue and improve my fiction writing and ultimately see my books on bookshelves at Books a Million, Borders, etc.
