I have wanted to be an author for years, and I've currently started writing a book of my own, the first out of five. The only thing is, a lot of people have no faith in younger people because they won't have enough "experience". What do you all think? Personally, I think that if you've read enough good books, particularly in the genre you want to write in (fantasy), that should qualify because you know good work. Like I said, I just would like some other people's opinions.
