I’m too old to start a writing carer…

Using the word “too” is the give away here. “Too” implies a judgement, a rationalization and an excuse.

How could you be “too” old to write.

You might say, “Well, I’m 40-50-60-70-80 and if I start now i won’t finish until I’m 40-50-60-70-80…”

True, but you’re going to age anyway. Why not spend the time doing something you  find fulfilling?

You could also make lots of age related excuses about it being a young person’s business, that no one will care about an AARP member’s ideas and other ideas like that.

Excuses, my older friend, excuses.

Now, ass on chair, fingers in keyboard. Type!
