Late Bloomer Alert

I refuse to call myself a late bloomer because

(a) I'm not that old.
(b) I haven't exactly bloomed yet.

So, maybe I aspire to be a late bloomer. Here's some advice and inspiration from Writer's Digest: "Publish Your First Book After 50." (I did not know that about Laura Ingalls Wilder. I gobbled up the Little House books! She taught me how to write about food, that's for sure.)

One thing strikes me most about the advice in this article: you have to be patient with yourself. Just because you're older doesn't mean you can learn to write faster. Everybody ends up with novels in the drawer.

Thanks for the link, Anne. I think I'll call myself Rob Chaudhuri.

Hey, Rob! Wouldn't it be trippy to live that long, let alone publish a book at age 100?

Yes and then you'd be so batty, you could read your own book and not know how it ends.
