RubyE. – 2008-05-29 12:22 AM Let’s put it this way. The very first poem I had published was written when I was 12-years-old. Besides, ever heard of Eragon? That book, which was turned into a popular movie, was not only written, but self published and self marketed by a fifteen-year-old! When it comes to great writing, there are no age limits, in my opinion.


Well, he was a lot older when it was published, and he didn’t really self-publish, nor do any more self-promotion than any other writer.  But he did start writing the book at fifteen.

And I don’t think I’d ever call Eragon great writing.
