who I am now

I have come to love writing almost as much as I love reading. Which is great! It’s good to keep the two evenly balanced. As Stephen King said “If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time or tools to write.”

I read a lot. I read about love, romance, horror, paranormal, scifi, tragedy, mystery, and most important I read about writing. I keep my tool box full. I have always been a dedicated reader, something that my grandmother passed down to me when I was very young.

I always had a way with words because of my constant reading. My mother loves to tell me how she laughed when she read the letters I sent her from Airforce basic training. She said the way I told of all my misadventures in my letters made her feel as if she were reliving them. That should have been a clue then that I was a natural story teller, but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I decided I was going to write.

I had a dream that insisted it needed to be told. So one afternoon, I sat down at the keyboard, and started the first few pages of WF. I had no clue then how much time and work it would take to finish this little hobby I had started.

Fast forward to today. I’m still working on that very same story. I havnt given up, and I love this book. I have faith that others will love this book. I have a blog where people visit and read my words, and I have dozens of writer friends helping me learn new things every day. My hobby blossomed into something more. It’s taken hold of me and refuses to let go. So, I continue to write. It’s become a part of who I am now. I’m a writer.

How did you first realize you wanted to write?

Ta!
