Before I start reading a good book, I love to turn to the author’s bio and acknowledgements. It allows me to see what drove them to write a fabulous book and who all they thanked – which is never easy since we all know how much help we use along the way.
Some people find their passion at an early age, their imaginations carrying them to bring a notepad and write everything down.
Others soak up the information for years. Never knowing that’s where they’ll end up but when asked the inevitable question ‘When did you start writing’ they’ll reply with ‘a year’ but secretly they’ll know it was since childhood.
We are also driven to write different things. Some of travel, life, animals, others simply make believe. Some also write just because they ran out of books to read.
So what category do you fall under? Why did you start writing?
