Meeting Sir Dapron

Last night, our writer's group had a wonderful speaker. We were honored and humbled by eighty-six year old, Sir Elmer Dapron and his lovely wife, Pamela. 
Elmer may honestly be the most interesting man in the world. In spite of his many honors and awards, he is a down to earth individual who is willing to share his writing expertise and advice with novices such as our group.
He encouraged all of us to look outside our areas of writing to find markets for our expertise as well as our complete ignorance of a subject. Who better to write about fly fishing that the person who has never tried it, but wants to learn? In this world, there are far more amateurs than experts.
For those of us who do have a skill, then use it. For example, I speak Spanish, but I learned late in life. As a result, I have learning techniques that I developed on my own.
A person who has worked his or her way through the grieving process may be just the person to write an article for a funeral home or hospice center. Do you have allergies? Then write about them. Do you have an obsession for mustard or salsa? There are markets for those articles as well as markets for those of us who constantly burn dinner. (Or in my case, create a homemade, two pound loaf of Spam, so awful that the cat wouldn't even eat it.)
Elmer and Pamela opened my eyes with their creative minds and infectious laughter. I'm hoping we will continue to meet and grow our friendship as there is soooooo much I can learn from them.
ShareThanks again, Elmer and Pam.
P.S. Kudos to Dana for finding them!

The worst part of it was that the software only worked intermittently and the data was not accurate. You obviously canot confront anyone about what you have discovered if the information is not right.
