The other day I was reading a political article and the author mentioned interviewing “older voters.” The first “older voter” she interviewed was 53 — my age. It stunned me. I wondered, “If I’m an older voter at 53, what about the people who are 63, 73, 83, and 93?”When does one become an “older voter?” I realized the answer probably lay with the author. If the author is a millennial, then perhaps everything appears to be one big blur of old age after 50. Surely we must all have the same political concerns that emerge from our decrepitude.

Here are my thoughts on why I write and the process I use to write:

A lot of my writer friends talk about how they’ve wanted to write professionally since they were children, but that isn’t exactly true for me. I did win some writing awards and was a student that teachers encouraged to pursue writing, but I frankly never took it seriously because I did not think I could make a go of it and support myself with writing. It’s not that I didn’t believe in myself—I actually did. I just never thought of writing as a career goal. Read more…
