Write as though You’re 65

A letter of advice to a young writer

My dear Abhina,

You asked me how to be a brave writer and not worry about reactions to what you write.

My experience has been that as I age, I don’t care much what people think. I realize that the years I spent being concerned about the opinions and criticisms of others were monumentally wasted time.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
