What do you think are a writer’s most productive years? I got an email today that said sixty to eighty were the most productive. While I can’t say for sure that’s right since I’m not there yet, I sort of think early twenties were mine.
I wrote a lot in college. Short stories. Poetry. Journals. Although I guess we should perhaps define “productive.” I’m thinking amount or volume. If we’re talking quality … well, maybe my college and post graduate work would not be the most “productive.”
If quality is the definition, then, hopefully, I’m going into those years now. And if things ever settle down a bit, I’m going to aim for volumes as well.
