When I first learned to write my name. just saying
That's too bad! It would've been fun to see that part acted out.glutton said:When I wrote my first story with a indestructible female warrior who would get run through with giant weapons and not die.
I was in junior high school and it was a play for a class assignment which was about 8 pages too long and never got to the part with the indestructible female warrior when we (started to) performed it in front of class.

Yeah, he had a cute butt, but that didn't mean...
Oh, wait, wrong "when did you realize" story. Sorry.
Yeah, but it's not like getting pregnant either. Just because my wife picked up a notebook a year ago and wrote four paragraphs because she "wanted to write a book, too", doesn't make her a writer. She hasn't picked it up since, and she wasn't one while she was writing those paragraphs because the commitment wasn't there. I think there's a psychological threshold you step over in the process FOR MOST PEOPLE, not for all. You dabble, it feels right, someone says they like what you wrote, and then you write. At some point you step over the threshold and realize you can't go back. But, right up until that threshold, there are COUNTLESS people who turn and walk away without looking back. Those people who turn away aren't writers IMO.smreine said:I hate to be a poop, but being a writer is a job, not some spiritual calling or genetic quality.
How dare you! That's not what Guru Rakemfrakem's $399 online course "How Too Awaken the Writer's Inside" says! And he knows what he's talking about because he got a five-book contract from PublishAmerica!smreine said:I hate to be a poop, but being a writer is a job, not some spiritual calling or genetic quality.
