There's another type of experience I'd like to discuss, and that's living experience. I think it's weird when I hear about 23-year-old authors getting published because they haven't really lived through a lot. I mean have they witnessed somebody dying, been a fight or a car wreck, are they even married or have children, and reallly have they been through millions of different situations that real life throws at us? I want to know what you guys think about this because this is one of the reasons I'm holding off writing seriously. I mean I don't plan to be completely done with my novel before I turn 30. I want to experience life more so I can be a more wise writer.
