My name is Glynis Jolly. I’ve been on the blogosphere for over fifteen year, flitting from one blogging host site to another. I still have blogs at other host sites but this is where I’m the most comfortable.
I’m an older struggling writer trying to complete that first novel. I’m sure once I’ve done that, I’ll want to continue to write more stories. You’ll find I’m obsessed with writing if you browse through this blog, although occasionally I will touch on other subjects. If you’re curious as to which topics I usually discuss, please consult the list of categories on the sidebar.
How Older Am I?
I’m old enough so AARP can consider me a senior but I really don’t feel old inside yet. I’m old enough to have salt and pepper hair (and I’m not a redhead). I’m old enough to not only be a grandmother, but a great-grandmother to boot. I’m old enough to remember the unrest that was prevalent in this country (U.S.) during the Vietnamese War. I’m old enough to have been one of the demonstrators against that war, although just barely. I’m old enough to know I don’t know even half of what I could know if I had paid better attention all these years.
A Loner — I Think
I seem to be my happiest when I’m alone. I can be a chatter box but once I’m out in that sort of setting, I always wish I had stayed quiet instead. Being a loner makes life trying as part of a couple. This appears to be double in my circumstances because my husband is the opposite of me wanting people and noise 24/7. Fittingly, my son (from my first marriage) is like me, an introvert, while my stepdaughter is like her father, an extrovert.
True to My Culture
Despite the fact that I live in Tennessee right now, I’m definitely a westerner. Unlike here in the eastern US, cultures, races, and economic classes mix freely and wildly in the west. Often I forget where I am and treat everyone the same, putting people ill at ease no matter which side of the fence of the ostensible piece of land being of subject. I feel as if I’m living in a foreign country most of the time.
I hope you’ll distinguish my posts with your presence and be good enough to comment on what I write.
