I wrote this piece when I was still relatively new to the game but had celebrated my first handful of publications. I was familiar with Lorrie Moore’s “How to Become a Writer,” but as a late bloomer I’d done it my way, so I gave the topic a new twist from my vantage point.
“How to Become a Writer After Sixty” was originally published in Tiny Lights: A Journal of Personal Narrative, which ceased publication a while back, so I’m happy to see it given a new lease on life in this re-airing by our very own San Diego Writers, Ink.
