No "Use By" Dates

Read around and you will find article after article touting youth as the ultimate time to succeed as a writer, a musician, an artist or even a programmer. They would have us believe that we miss our chance at greatness based on an arbitrary "use by" date in life.

This is another nugget of supposed wisdom that should be seen for what it is: another way to make a few into the elite.

The age that you begin and continue to write, for yourself and no one or thing else, is the only valid date to embrace.
