Virginia is a few months shy of a century old and suffers from glaucoma which makes reading and writing difficult. She recently became something of an internet sensation when she bought her first computer (an iPad) and rekindled (bad eReader pun) her passion for reading and writing.
The adjustable font size and the sharp contrast between the white background and black text have made it easier for people like Virginia to engage with books again.
A couple weeks ago I posted an article called “Authors, are You Too Old to Make It?” which generated a lot of discussion amongst older writers. As part of that continuing discussion, one writer posted his own take at HubPages and included this video, so I figured I’d post it again here. Heartwarming!
To any older readers and writers who’re feeling like time is chugging along faster than you can keep up, listen to Virginia’s advice: “You’re never too old to take advantage of something that’ll help you!”
