    I took a long (30 plus years) break from writing. I cannot answer the question “Why?” Rather than waste time worrying about it, I just write now. Crazy note on whether a writer’s voice changes over the years: In 2010 one of my new short stories (written in 2009) was published in a lit mag in Canada that I like. This year I sent that editor an old story from my 1976 thesis. He sent me a polite rejection, saying that he liked the story but would not print it because it was too similiar to the one he just printed. I agreed.
