Thankfully, writing seems to be a skill that most people only get better at over time – like a muscle that needs to be worked and stretched. It can take years of practise, rigorous editing, learning and growing, before most of us reach the point where we’re proud to put our work out there, confident it’s something people want to read.
It’s not surprising that most successful authors are only published later in life. Here are some well-known writers and their ages when they found fame. http://writerswrite.co.za/its-never-too-late-to-start-writing
