I'm featured on the Austin Writing Examiner

Sylvia Dickey Smith, aka the Austin (Texas) Writing Examiner, asked for my thoughts on the advantages of being a more adult writer. By that term, I think she means older, not necessarily more well-behaved. ;-) Her article today lists what I consider to be the benefits of being an older writer, and to me that term applies to those who have said goodbye to their forties and moved on to higher decades.

As Sylvia concludes, "If you have long said you would love to write a book, take the example set by women on this column, strike out and begin. Find a group of other more adult women with like intent, buy books on the subject and get started."

Does that mean I'm more adult? Heading over to read the article. Interesting thought.

I like that term - more adult sounds so much better than older!
