In Writers’ Terms, 50 is the new 30

A study of bestselling authors reveals that 50 is the perfect age to write a novel. Actually, that’s kind of misleading. Make that “the perfect age to write a novel that makes it to the NY Times bestseller list, which novel might not be your first, nor your last.” But still. When you compare that to the average age at which musicians top the Rolling Stone list, it’s nice to see that maturity is not a liability in writing.
