|No, this isn't me!|
While it would be nice to time travel and go back and correct past mistakes, it would only work if I could go back having my current knowledge.
My favorite saying is, "I ain't dead yet" and it's true. Every day I learn, or relearn new stuff and it's all grist for the writing mill. The more opinions, experiences, and research I do to write makes me a better writer. So why have I been taking hits of late because I'm older? See yesterday's blog for one.
But with age comes a maturity level in writing. Did that stop me from writing as a child as in my novel, The Sacrificial Lamb, nope. I can do that. I can remember what it was like or look at my granddaughters. To get perspective on that age. I can mentally transport myself into that period of time in my own life to make it real. An eleven-year old would be hard pressured to write this novel.
In writing I can be whatever age I want to be because I've lived it. Many younger authors would be hard pressed to write as a sixty-year old unless they were retelling a story from that aged person. They just have no experience or knowledge to work from. But they will given time. See there are advantages of being an older writer.
|Yeah, this is me|
So how old do you feel today?
Keep writing and loving the Lord.
