Prompt #1 – Earliest Memories


The first prompt for the Author Writing Challenge is:

Describe your earliest memory of writing? How did your writing habit/process/career develop?

Writing is something I’ve always done, I suppose. Recently I was looking through some boxes of old papers and found some stories I wrote when I was about 7 or 8 and in Grade 2 at school.

When I was in high school, my interest in writing flourished. I had wonderful English teachers who encouraged me to develop. I even won some writing awards, both for a short story and for a play. I still have a copy of my play, but not my story.

I went to uni to study journalism, but never finished – life got in the way, as it does…

Around 2008, I started blogging, and have been blogging ever since. It wasn’t until last year, I got back to writing fiction, and realised how much I loved it. I am now working hard to develop my writing, rediscovering my dream of becoming a published author.
