Thoughts of an Unknown Writer
Everyone asks when a writer really began his/her love of words. Many of them say that they knew when they were little that they wanted to write. Others tell stories about writing their first book when they were very young. Then there is me. The beginning thoughts of me writing began just a few years ago.
I remember very clearly the day when I decided that I wanted to write. Okay, it wasn’t really that I decided to write, but a feeling that overtook me when I heard a song on the radio. Kelly Clarkson’s Already Gone came on the radio and I left reality for awhile. I saw clear pictures of characters that would eventually make their way to paper. This had never happened to me before. I did the only thing that I could at the time. I sat at my computer, played the song over and over again until I got those images and feelings transformed into words.
Now, this particular story has been put on the back burner for the past year or so. Why? Because another story called to me. It’s this second story that I have been working on for the past 1 1/2 years. This is the story that I hope will be published one day. This is the story I was really meant to tell.
