I just read an article about the famous mystery novelist, Lilian Jackson Braun, author of The Cat Who books, who recently passed away. She was 97 years old. She was still writing up until 2007 when she retired. That means she was still writing at the age of 93.
Think about that for a minute.
93 years old and still writing.
To me, this signifies that writing wasn't just a job for her - it was a way of life.
Writing is the same for me.
If I am blessed enough to live until I'm 93 and if my health allows it, I can pretty much guarantee I'll still be writing.
I don't plan on retiring from it. Why? Because if I retire from writing, I'll also be retiring from life. And who wants that?
