I was at a writer’s retreat recently and someone remarked about how much I had written in a short amount of time (about 4 years). They mentioned that they were older and had not written even a fraction of what I had written. You know what, though? My first thought was, I have not written enough, and that I have been making up for lost time, but when I thought about it, that wasn’t what I said. You know what I said? You will write when the time is right for you. And, you know what? I meant it. Writing is not a race or a competition. It is about writing the right things with the most sincerity at the right time and place.
As they say, you do the best for you. You can compare, yes, but remember you can only do you.
Went to a writer’s retreat this last weekend and we had 2-10 minute contests for a bottle of wine. I ended up winning the bottle of wine with 1180 words! Reread what I had written, and you know what? I can’t spell, LOL
Hit me up for details. Very few spots available!
