I've been writing since I was 6 or 7. When I was 21 or 22 I submitted what I thought was a final draft of the book I wrote to a publishing company. It was returned unread, and said I needed an agent. I had no idea how to research this (it was 7 or 8 years ago, so even online I don't know how prevalent agency web sites were) and I was under the misguided impression that agents required payment up front. This severely stagnated my writing. I would still try to start new stories, and I wrote some shorts and many journal entries, but I didn't get seriously into writing again until I was 26 or 27, and I learned the real way things work and got hope again! Now I'm 30, have had some non-fiction published, and I'm working on the fiction!

A very long time… This actually depends on what the distractions are… 
