No. You’re not a new writer. You’re a writer. You always were. Always will be.
Like you, I’m publishing my written work for the first time at the age of 49. And yes, it’s helping my mental health.
And naughty I can deal with. I’m thinking of recounting some of my own past.
I’ll look forward to hearing more from you. I’m super interesting in exchanging thoughts and opinions, given our overlapping circumstances.
