What do you need to write a book?

I just received a long email message from a writer who'd love to write a book, but she thinks she's too young.

Here's part of my response:

The beauty of writing books is that there are no restrictions as to age, sex, income, education, or personal experience. Teens have written books, and so have older folks.
A publisher only cares about what's on the page, so anyone can write a book, and your only limits are those you put on yourself.


If you want to
write a book, you can.
