Anytime you write, anytime you share, anytime you put yourself out there, people are watching, reading, and judging. The internet is the world and we really have absolutely no idea who's watching. A little spooky. A little exhilarating.
So, what do you do if you're one of the aspiring writers who can't find their traction?
I published my first short story when I was 39, and my first novel when I was 45. I would never have been able to write what I wrote without the life experiences that forty-five years had given me.
