Start Writing your Bestseller!

It really is never too late, I started in my fifties.

Nicholas C. Rossis

I came across this inspirational infograph by Essaymama on Shannon A. Thompson’s blog. We get to see where our favorite writers started, and how long it took them before they found success in the form of a bestseller.

Some authors started out as young as 13 and others as late as 65. Virginia Woolf started writing at 27 years, but only become popular at 43. Haruki Murakami was a bar manager till 29 years, and Charles Bukovski a postman ’till his 40s. The moral here is clear: it’s never too late to start writing your bestseller. Just don’t give up!

Oh, yeah. And it’s obvious why everyone hates E.L. James 😀

From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's books

  3. It’s not the writing that’s the problem, Jean, it’s the bestseller part.
