We asked, and big 96 of you told us! The main reason for writing/being published after 40 is — ta-da! – – actually no surprise: lack of time. Jobs/family/life got in the way for 33% of you, but the twin demons of fear/doubt account for another 24%, which we file under ‘sad but true’ because we have all been there…and probably still are. Another 17% of you just weren’t ready yet and for the rest, well, you had other stuff to do first. Thankfully, 0% told us it’s none of our business to ask! Stay tuned for our next poll: a literary quiz.
