Writers Never Retire
In most industries, people have a limit to their careers. At 60, they put away life’s work and focus on things they neglected in their youth, like traveling, bungee jumping, writing.
While I was watching Elizabeth Gilbert’s TED talk on nurturing creativity, I realized: Isn’t it amazing? Writers never retire! Writers can write forever, until their last breath. They may retire from their copywriting and copyediting careers, but they don’t stop writing when they reach 60. (Norman Mailer published his last book at 70, just before he died.) Retirement is a foreign word to us writers!
