The advantage of being an older writer – Susan Hill QUOTES FOR WRITERS (and people who like quotes)

older womanGetting old has advantages as well as disadvantages. it may mean that you are freed from obligations – work, bringing up children, looking after older relatives – that left you little time or energy for writing. If so, that new freedom could stimulate your creativity.
Whether you write fiction or non-fiction, your writing will be informed by your own life experiences – work, leisure, travel, friendships, relationships, love, loss…you name it. The older you gte the more life experiences you have to draw om.

    Simply put, the older you become, the longer you’ve lived, thus, the more stories you have in you.

      And the more time you’ve had to write and get it wrong, write and still get it wrong but in a better and more interesting way. More time too to think about the human condition. That’s the wonderful thing about writing. There are no age limits, no retirement dates, no signs saying you’re too old (or too young).

        Very true. Same goes for us readers who do not write but read and appreciate good writing.
