for writers and readers….
I get tired of “under 40” lists. Show me someone who got their PhD at 60 after losing everything. Give me the 70-year-old debut novelist who writes from a lifetime of love and grief. Give me calloused hands and tender hearts.
youth is wasted on the young; experience usually comes with added rheumatism. Joking aside, it’s a good point. Writers with real life experience have more to say.
The older I get the more I agree with Doug Murano
