I'm a younger writer in the process of writing my first novel (although I've been writing for 5-6 years). I know that before I start looking into publication I need to first finish the novel, but was curious about how my age could impact my writing. Would my age prevent publishers from taking my novel seriously. Should I, assuming I send it to a publisher, omit my age in order to prevent it from affecting the decision to publish it or not? Will my age be a hinderance in getting published? Thanks!
