I am an Autumn bloomer. My freshman year of college, I had to take remedial writing because my writing was so poor. I left college to travel at Uncle Sam’s expense and joined the US Navy. In my thirties, under the tutelage of Dr. Mrs. Fulayter, I caught the bug. She was a passionate English professor.
Apart from writing papers and journaling, I did not take my writing seriously until I reached my early fifties.
You ladies are young and so talented. Keep pouring out your heart and soul. You never know what the future holds.
