It took me fifteen years to discover I had no talent for writing, but I couldn’t give it up because by that time I was too famous.
If you can tell stories, create characters, devise incidents, and have sincerity and passion, it doesn’t matter a damn how you write.
It’s none of their business that you have to learn to write. Let them think you were born that way.
What you want is practice, practice, practice. It doesn’t matter what we write (at least this is my view) at our age, so long as we write continually as well as we can. I feel that every time I write a page either of prose or of verse, with real effort, even if it’s thrown into the fire the next minute, I am so much further on.
Take the time to write. You can do your life’s work in half an hour a day.
You fail only if you stop writing.
I’m writing a book. I’ve got the page numbers done.
Read intensely. Write every day. Then see what happens. Most writers who do that have very pleasant careers.
