Origins Blogfest 2012

When did YOUR Writing Dreams begin?

Tell us for the Origins Blogfest . . . when did you first pick up that pen or sit in front of that keypad and begin to create a story, or a column, a poem, or a book? (Not for school or because you had to, but because you wanted to write something down that was in your head)

When did I first start writing stories?

I’m not sure, I kept getting sidetracked.  But . . .

It could have been when I sent in my first article to a teen magazine and received my first nice rejection. Insert appropriate teen angst, but at least I had a reply.

It could have been when I was hired on the strength of my cover letter, not my experience, and the woman told me why. She liked my words. Then, I landed a job where writing was the focus, but the purpose definitely non-fiction. It was a learning time.

My writing genre: Science Fiction and Suspense/Crime novels.

Thanks for dropping by. Hope you can share one of your writing memories in the comments below.
