You're never too old to start-1You’re never too old to start writing.

I love talking to people about writing and I love to hear about their journey with writing. It is something that seems to be a passion for many but quite a few seem to shy away from it for a long time. I could go into all the reasons I think that happens but I’d rather talk about how cool it is that people are gravitating more and more to do writing. I think this is actually true of all artistic/creative endeavors.

Recently, I met a gentleman, who at 82, was happily selling his fifteen books that he’d written. The cool part was that he didn’t start writing until he was 60. Several years ago I met a gentleman who wrote a book about his experience working on the rail line in Canada for most of his life. He was 103 years old. How cool is that? I love to see people write, to me it doesn’t matter what they are writing, just that they are writing.

We all have a story to tell, a story to share – real or fiction – that I think the rest of the world needs to hear. That’s why I am so passionate about working with women and getting them to write their stories, whatever that may be for them.

Writing is so freeing. I have found that several individuals who have finally taken up writing have said that it is something that they’ve wanted to do most of their life. They’ve had a story playing in their head, or they have felt that their life story or that of someone they know should be told. For others they never even wanted to be a writer, they just found that suddenly one day something happened – someone told them they should, they find themselves with time and not much to do, there are many reasons –  and they started writing. In fact the 82 year old gentleman I mentioned earlier, that was what happened to him. And now he can’t stop. 🙂

The truth is that you are never too old to start writing. It is something that everyone can do and my opinion is that they should.

Write because you can!
