We’ve had a slew of new newsletter subscribers lately (hello everyone!). Much to my delight, many of them respond to the initial email and introduce themselves. Sure, I request responses in the email, but not everyone does.
Recently, multiple people responded with a similar message. They are soon-to-be or newly retired and looking for a way to share the ideas inside of them. Some have prior writing experience, and some were completely new to the concept.
There is never a wrong time to start writing. If you’re coming to write later in life, don’t fret about starting late. Instead, focus on the breadth of experience and knowledge you bring to your writing.
Everyone comes to writing uniquely. I encourage you to embrace your journey.
When did you start writing? What barriers did you overcome to get where you are today?
These aren’t rhetorical questions; I really want you to respond. This newsletter is the start of a dialogue I hope you engage in. See you in the replies.
