Here’s a pretty good blog I wrote a few years ago. Enjoy!
I have always written, therefore, I have always been a writer. Right? For as long as I can remember I have been calling myself a writer. I have written many things since I first picked up a pencil and applied it to a blank sheet of paper: notes to friends, diary entries, song lyrics, poems, short stories, school papers, novels, essays. I have pretty much written it all. Where did this desire to express myself through words on a page come from?
If I am going to attribute my lifelong love of writing to pop culture, I can point to three things:
- Natalie on The Facts of Life always talked about writing The Great American Novel
- Patty on Square Pegs was wise beyond her years (as was I) and wrote for the school newspaper
- The Beatles’ “Paperback Writer” made the idea of being a writer sound fascinating
