Get a load of this!

I tried to read it sensibly and carefully but there was a picture of COLIN FIRTH, Janet! Honestly, woman.

Congratulations to David Seidler. This makes me very happy. I love when work and success is not limited or defined by age.

This is a beautiful story of perseverance---two of them.
Not to mention inspiration and integrity.

I love reading stories like this. There is no age or time limit on talent. Good for him for not giving up! And thanks for sharing this story with us!

In 30 years I'll be 73! How long do sharks live? I was planning to retire at 80 and go fishing so I have a 7 year window of opportunity.

I like listening to war stories. I worked with some old diggers that served in the war and they enetertained and taught me how to appreciate life. God bless them. Thanks for the great story.

I promise never to complain again about how slow publishing is. At least for a while anyway.

Oh, I can beat that. The world was created millions of years ago, but the Book of Genesis was not written until the Exile, about 550 B.C.

I defy the world of publishing to get any slower than that.

He beat my 5 year record with one indecisive publisher by a couple of decades.

It took Helen Hooven Santmyer 50 years to write "And Ladies of the Club", 1400 pages. She was in her 80's when it sold. Some claim it's the Great American Novel.

Patience, Patience, Patience.
