Laura Ingalls Wilder didn’t start writing until her 70’s/80’s. I believe her books and the TV show were so popular because she wrote about a way of life that no longer existed. For those of us now middle aged, the way we grew up is different than how our kids were raised, especially with the pace of technology. Creativity and effort are the keys to writing about anything and making it fresh, interesting, and relatable. New to writing, take a class and/or join a group, just don’t put it off another day. Write now!
