I got an email from David a few days ago and he suggested I do a blog post asking when everyone started writing:
You should do a blog post asking everyone how they got into the writing that they do, how long ago, etc.
Which is a great question 🙂
So how did everyone’s writing journey begin?
I guess for me… I’ve been writing since I was young. I started keeping a daily journal when I was eleven-years-old and I still write in it to this day. I started writing fiction when I was sixteen or seventeen. That was the age I started getting into fandoms so I wrote a lot of fanfiction and read a lot of fanfiction.
I wrote SECTOR12 two years ago and it really came about as a dare. I’d heard about the Amazon Writer’s Awards and expressed an interest in entering, so Lyn basically dared me to write a novel in 2.5 weeks and enter. So I did 🙂
After that craziness, I didn’t write anything substantial for a while, and it wasn’t until September last year that I really decide to commit to my dream of becoming an author.
So that’s my story. How did you guys get to where you are now?
