Creative Retirement

What are you going to do when you retire? is a question almost everyone I talked to in 2008 asked me. I made up some good sounding replies and two years later, I'm doing none of them.

I never needed a Lincoln public Library card before retirement; all of my reading during my 40-year career at Nebraska was focused either on my teaching or my research and writing. So, upon retirement I obtained a library card and read 2-3 novels a week. Some of the authors, particularly Robert B. Parker and his Jesse Stone and Spenser novels, inspired me. I don't know what possessed me, but one day I sat at my computer to check my e-mail and started to write.
