The Beginnings (Julie)

I would safely wager a bet that most if not all authors are avid readers (in my head it doesn't make sense
if you wrote but hated reading). It was probably reading that spurred the interest in writing your own book. That's how it was for me. I was reading so many kid's fantasy books that one day I decided I should just write my own. And I am!


Since my interest revolved around fantasy, I guess I naturally veered toward a fantasy novel. That's what I loved to read so it made sense that I'd love to write it too.

What about you writers? Was it a love for reading a certain genre that brought you into the world of writing? 

It wasn't just reading that started a desire to story-tell, but also a very over active imagination. I constantly have stories going on in my head and even in my dreams. The idea for my current WIP came from a dream I had one night (after reading a fantasy novel of course). Surprisingly when I woke, I remembered enough of the dream to write it down and from that, a trilogy was born.

So, what led you to writing? An obsession with reading or an active imagination?
