"Writing is not like dancing or modelling; it's not something where - if you missed it by age 19 - you're finished. It's never too late. Your writing will only get better as you get older and wiser. If you write something beautiful and important, and the right person somehow discovers it, they will clear room for you on the bookshelves of the world - at any age. At least try." -Elizabeth Gilbert

"To write something you have to risk making a fool of yourself."

-Anne Rice
