The Beginnings (Julie)
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?
