Those four days

I purchased a portable typewriter and said to myself, “Casey, you better get started writing.” A daughter was born in 1959, another son in 1963, a mid-life career change in 1964 and another daughter in 1969 got in the way of writing. In February 1977 nineteen years after having purchased the typewriter I went to a cabin in Wyoming for four days to get started writing. Those four days were a great learning experience. I learned I didn’t have the discipline to write. I learned a blank page in a typewriter is a sure way to create a mental block.
