Valerie Lewis creates

You will soon find out that I am not very technically knowledgeable and I get lost occasionally so I hope you who will be reading this will have patience with me.

I am older than I would like to be but feel young inside. For this reason I keep away from mirrors, the person looking back is not me, I am sure of it.

My passion is knitting lace and creating designs, mostly baby dresses which can be viewed on my web page
 and I design small patterns which I sell at the local craft market.

I have three children, ten grandchildren and three greatgrandchildren all of whom are beautiful and I love them dearly.
I ran away from home 8 years ago and my husband of 42 years divorced me because I refused to return. His loss.

I love to write stories which started when my children were young and it has continued along with some poetry. Every year I take part in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) when with thousands of other writers I pledge to write 50,000 words in 30 days. It is hard going and often leads to many late nights to reach a target amount of words created in a day. It becomes harder if a day or two is lost for some reason or other. Last year my computer broken down and it was two days before it could be fixed but I made up for it and completed the alloted words. I won't say the novel was very good but I am sure that when it goes through editing and probably some re-write it will be better. It starts on Novermber 1st and all participants are waiting eagerly to start. I have an idea of a story running through my head but time will tell if it will go down on paper.
