One of my memoir classes was attended by an eighty year old lady who had little education; had never written a poem, story or anything else in her life – and discovered she could write with absolute perfection! What if she’d opted for the rocking chair and never tried? Obviously, she had been a life-long reader and that had taught her a great deal, but she never knew the talent was there… until she picked up a pen and started to write!
When this came out on Pinterest, I applauded. Take it to heart. It’s not too late until you’re *a week dead.
(*Survival Tip: be buried with a mobile phone in case it’s not really over. No, really, people do still opt for this.)
