You are never too old to learn: reading and writing fiction will transform your life. It did mine.
I’m 67 and just self-published my eleventh novel, enforcing my belief that Ursula K. Le Guin spoke truth when she observed “storytelling is a tool for knowing who we are and what we want.”
Do you want to learn more about the craft of fiction writing? Even if you are a beginner?
If you answered yes to either or both questions, visit the Fiction Writing School (but read the WARNING first).
Going back to school is like drinking water from a fire hose (cliche, yuck). You’ll come close to drowning, especially if you don’t step aside after a short drenching. Here’s my advice: discriminate; choose what interests you; and select what inspires you to pick up a pencil and start writing. In sum, don’t do like I did and spend years reading and studying about fiction writing before starting my first novel.
