This sensible volume urges a mellow, reflective attitude for senior citizens thinking of becoming writers. Oldsters who've postponed, neglected, or only dreamed of writing for publication are prodded to get busy, using their ample time to mine stored experiences and insights. Reading, taking a course, or otherwise brushing up on writing techniques is suggested. Nostalgia pieces; travel writing; book, theater, or movie reviewing; ghosting; and collaboration with notable persons, along with fiction, poetry, books, articles and other forms, are examined.

It's never too late to start writing, as a hobby or a second career, or just for the fun of it. This book shows you how to prepare for the writing life before you retire, find local writing classes, write for your own pleasure or for your family and friends, supplement your income with easy salable pieces, and enjoy writing despite physical handicaps.
