the same as anyone of any age from anywhere...

Should I give up?

that's up to you... how committed are you to being a screenwriter?... i suggest you look into the career and craft carefully... find out what is involved in learning the most specialized of all the writing arts and what the odds are of succeeding [millions to one!]... if, after apprising yourself of all the details and downsides, you still think this is the only thing you want to do in your life, then why quit?

i mentor many aspiring screenwriters, so if you drop me an email, i'll be glad to send you some basic info on all of the above and answer any questions you may have...

love and hugs, maia

There isn't any sense in giving up at anything, really.

It'll never be the easiest career to get into, obviously. But you can always have an agent at no expense, until you hit the big time. You can also pursue another line of work at the same time, no?

don't know what you meant by that, hob, but agents are not only for beginners... they make most of their commissions on the 'big time' writers!
