I wish.


Tara Woods Turner | 2063 comments As long as you can pick up a pen and have something to say.

As long as what you say is not mediated through a demented mind.

Lol I'd still be interested in that. Besides, if young people can write with demented minds so can our wonderful older folks.

Yeah haha. I say Tara, do you ever sleep?


Tara Woods Turner | 2063 comments Lol! I'm actually on my way to bed now - was finishing a blog article. I don't require a lot of sleep however. This is true. In that case, I bid you goodnight, good soul :)

GR Oliver | 479 comments How old is too old for writing?

In February I'll be 80. The age I'll stop writing is when I die; that is if I still can pound away at the keys. Good morning to you all. Have a good night. I hope to have a good day. Tchuess...

That is absolutely marvellous. Conditions remaining constant I intend to do the same.


message 12: by GR (new)

GR Oliver | 479 comments Bravo! I hope so too. Life at this point is short, and there's so much to say and little time to say it. So day and night I pound away hoping I'll get another book done. I started late in my life, at 54. Knowing nothing about how to write. I read everything and anything about the craft. I'm still learning. It has become an addiction. My wife says, it's become my soulmate and playmate.

Michel Poulin I am 61, obese and have high blood pressure, arthritis and have to watch my blood sugar. I however intend to continue writing as long as I can. My biggest fear is to see my arthritis worsen to the point when I will not be able to type on my computer keyboard anymore. Hopefully, that won't happen for many more years.

Mehreen Ahmed (mehreen2) | 1911 comments Oh dear God. Please let's not talk about death and disease. It is upsetting.

Nik Krasno | 13123 comments Some claim that younger generations don't read that much, so this whole 'writing thing' may become for 'oldies' only -:)

Obsolete!

Rachel Thyssen (rachelthijssen) | 18 comments Is there an age when you're too young to write? I wrote my first book at 14, lol. (MG 65K)


message 18: by Nik (new)

Nik Krasno | 13123 comments One could dictate even b4 learning writing-:)

There is always dictation software, Michel - you could still be writing without using a keyboard


message 20: by Michel (new)

Michel Poulin Thanks, Zee, but somehow it won't be the same as a keyboard. Thus, I intend to write as much as my free time leaves me, producing two or three books per year for as long as I can.


message 21: by GR (new)

GR Oliver | 479 comments I foresee reading as we know today will come to an end by the middle of this century. Most people will not know how to spell, and smart voice devices will take over. I have a book coming out soon, maybe the beginning of the year that portrays this coming syndrome. It's not a Sc-Fi, but a futuristic story about how dysfunction leads to drastic changes in social order. I'll let everybody know when it's out.

A relevant concept, IMO

I know! That's also why I haven't fallen for dictation yet even though everyone says you get tons of word count added with it

Mehreen Ahmed (mehreen2) | 1911 comments What would writing be replaced with, should it become obsolete or a thing of the past one day?
