And I don’t mean me! This is something I am stealing from an old person, or at least someone older than me.
Here it is: You can start over at any age.
Today I met an 81-year-old man named Nick. He is a writer. However, he does not call himself a writer. But a few years ago he started over and started writing. So, he is a writer.
We crossed paths because he was looking for an editor, a role I have played more than a few times in my life. We spoke briefly on the phone and settled on meeting at Starbucks (I know, not very original! But to those who have read my earlier post on Starbucks, you will be proud of me because I did NOT order a Medium Mocha Frappachinno with whipped cream! Yay me!).
I knew nothing about him other than he would be wearing a white hat.
