That’s the message from this 2017 Writer’s Digest article by Rebecca Foust entitled, It’s Never Too Late: On Becoming a Writer at 50.
This applies, of course, to all of us folks who are ‘making stuff’.
“But here I was, almost 50 without having taken so much as the first step toward the one goal that in some form or another appeared near the top in each decade’s list. Okay, I thought. Time to get started.”
“If you love to write and have a story you want to tell, the only thing that can stand between you and the success you’re seeking isn’t craft, or a good agent, or enough Facebook friends and Twitter followers, but fear.”
“I know I still have much to learn but instead of feeling crippled by self-doubt, I relish the challenge posed by an art that can never be fully mastered.”
