A First Time For Everything...

When I look back, I can see I’ve pretty much been writing for my whole life. I can remember back to my first book at the age of ten, handwritten in colored ink pens in a pink paper notebook, drawings scribbled all over the pages. The writing wasn’t the greatest, but, hey, it was a start.


So what about you? When did you start writing? What was your first piece like?

  1. How precious!

    My first official "piece" was in fourth grade. It was a Halloween story written for extra credit on wide ruled notebook paper in curly Q handwriting. The funny thing is that I can remember exactly where I was when I was writing it. I was at our large square coffee table in the formal living room of our house in Houston, Texas and I wrote it in the evening after supper. I remember it so well because my beloved teacher, Mrs. Kirtley, wrote a nice comment on it and from that day forward I've wanted to be a writer.

  2. To be honest, I can't really remember a time where I wasn't writing. Even before I could read, I imagined all sorts of stories, since I had a huge imagination (OK, still do). But the first story I wrote, I was 6 or 7, and I was retelling the story of Joseph and the plagues. I found it awhile ago, and couldn't help but laugh at sentences like this: "And Joseph tolt Pharaoh to let his people go, but he did NOT." Haha :)

  3. I still remember the first story I wrote when I was like six. I remember that was the day I knew I wanted to be a writer. :-)

  5. Sarah,
    Did I know you were homeschooled? Somehow I think I missed that! I'm homeschooling my children, and I'm so inspired to see your early books and to know that you are still writing! Blessings!
