Intrepid Optimist is the place where I can share my stories; fact, fiction and thoughts from the past and present. It’s Written by myself for people who believe adventure knows no age
I sometimes find myself craving for the urbanity of the past… for washing-days, home-made jam, cheese and onion pie and Biggles. It is not as though my present way of life has me hankering for times of yore, it is because I, like most people, spend most of my time thinking about the past and there is nothing unnatural or unhealthy in indulging in this. But I have recently found myself going a step further, I am starting to write about the past – mine.
I read somewhere that adults over fifty-five, which I am well over, are the fastest-growing section of the computer-buying public. More than 40% of adults of sixty-five and older have a PC. The average senior retiree spends more time online than an average teenager. Many of these folk are finding that creating and up-loading their life stories to the web is both enjoyable and rewarding. I am now one of these, having just finished writing, not my life story, which would be too long and too boring but a series of personal escapades which occurred over a certain period of time.
To start writing about occurrences which took place thirty years back was not easy but I surprised myself that once I got into the theme, there was no stopping me. If you have a PC, the time; everyone has a story, why not have a go yourself? We at Intrepid Optimist will be delighted to publish your effort to share with our readers
