SSP082 Writing While Old(er) with Ninie

We’ve heard dozens of different stories (lies, usually) that authors tell themselves as reasons they can’t start their writing journey. One of the most common is “I’m too old now.” We’ve heard it from friends, family, and even our own audience. So, in the interest of putting that lie to rest, we’ve invited one of Sterling and Stone’s own “old” authors on the show so she can give her advice to those of you who are still disqualifying yourself based on age.

We Talk About:
