I’m not sure where the idea that writing is only a young person’s game came from. Talent is talent, it doesn’t disappear just because you didn’t have the time (or the life experience) to write that novel at 25, but had to wait until 55.
The possibilities are endless. Never give up.
Luckily one blogger decided to take it upon herself to make a list of the 40 writers who published their first novels after the age of 40.
