The answer: You are never too old, or young to become a writer.
Writers come in all ages
Ever thought about being a writer? Hey, me too! At a young age I loved telling and writing stories. But my most favorite of all was listening to stories. It’s probably the reason that even now I still love having stories read to me. When I happen upon a really good book I find myself reading out loud just to hear the words. There’s a free tip about how to catch more typos as well. Anyway . . .
If a Job’s Worth Doing, It’s Worth Doing Right.
If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right. I don’t remember who first said this phrase, but I heard it first from my dad. Have you ever heard such a thing? It sounds like common sense, right? Not always. Sometimes we think that people only care about that wrapper, the outside. A belief that I used to hold until one grueling, hot summer of painting.
When I was just a kid in my pre-teen years, I learned a great lesson about taking pride in your work and not cutting corners. I had an opportunity to work during the summer helping my dad on the job with his local handyman business. Finally, I was going to make some money. My dad wasn’t like my friends' parents who gave them an allowance. If we wanted money for anything we had to work for it, even at home. A good lesson in itself, but not the one I’m talking about today.
