I have wanted to “make books” since around the sixth grade, and I published my first book when I was in my late thirties. My point is that the time in between was not wasted – submarine service, marriage, college, bringing up three kids, starting a school for them, and so forth. This kind of life experience is not distracting you from your appointed task of writing. It is, rather, the roundabout blessing of giving you something to say.

Sometimes we get caught up in a mission and lose the forest for the trees.
Thank you , Mr. Wilson.
Keep writing, at life’s pace,
