Should you wait to "write" until you're older? What do you think?

I mean, of course you can still write at home...but putting forth something at an age when you might not know what life is about...or perhaps you can rewrite later? But then...how do you know when the time is right (write)?

Write when you are young, write when you are an adult and write when you are old. Write because you enjoy writing, and not because you are trying to create the great American (or Canadian) masterpiece. The more you write, the better you will write. Before you try to write for the masses, write for yourself.
You will know then the time is right.

There is no wrong time to write.

Yea... drooling pureed peas and carrots all over your paper wouldn't be good..

Anytime you feel the urge to write, do it! The world is waiting to hear from the young you, the adult you, and the elderly you ... each has its own story. It's okay to grow and change along the way.

Write whenever you like.I used to write one paragraph stories to use as comprehension exercises when teaching.A skill I must get back.Another site has seen some of them.

Writing Right:
~~~~
1. Always avoid alliteration
2. Prepositions are not good words to end sentences with.
3. Avoid cliches like the plague.
4. Be careful to use adjectives and adverbs correct.
5. Proofread to see if you any words out.
6. Avoid the use of ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
7. Parenthetical remarks (even when relevant) are distracting.
8. Its important to use apostrophe's with great care.
9. It's better not to unnecessarily split an infinitive.
10. And sentence fragments.
11. Avoid unnecessary redundancy.
12. A writer must avoid shifting your point of view.
13. A verb must agree with their subjects.
14. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
15. Never generalize.
16. Watch out for irregular verbs which have creeped into our language.
17. Steer clear of quotations. "I hate quotations," Ralph Waldo Emerson said. "Tell me what you know."
18. Be more or less specific.
19. Understatement is always the best.
20. Exaggeration is a billion times worse.
21. The use of the passive voice is to be avoided.
22. Use colloquialisms when pigs fly.
23. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
24. Who needs rhetorical questions?
25. Avoid commas, that are not necessary.
26. Try to avoid long sentences that should be broken into shorter ones because they are hard to read and confusing and you shouldn't confuse your readers.
27. Watch out for comma splices, make them into separate sentences.
28. Above all be sincere whether you mean it or not.
