Every writers story begins with them telling their audience HOW they started writing. Oh, they were young! They have been writing for as long as they can remember! So much social time was given up in order to find a comfy corner and get down on paper what was swirling in their head.
My start was the same as the rest. Many hours, online groups, and never paying attention in classes. I think we all look back and see ourselves starting our writing adventure this way. We also look back and wish for the time that once was… We had so much more time to write back then.
