Huffington Post has a slide show of writers who were "late bloomers," i.e. started writing later in life. Of course I clicked over to it for some encouragement, since my writing tends to be stalled most of the time but I have hopes of publishing something someday. So it seems that publishing your first book at 37 or 38 makes you a late bloomer. Oh. Well, I guess I can't actually disagree with that. Apparently I have missed the late-bloomer train already, and I will have to continue to cling to Grandma Moses as a role model.
