I’ve spent the last 43 years as a writer in the making. Why? Well, I’ve always been an observer of people and anything else I could wrap my tiny brain around. I was a perfect little (overgrown) angel in school, sitting quietly and paying attention. Did I learn anything? I learned that you don’t put a period after every. single. word. I learned that my high school chemistry teacher was on some heavy prescription meds. I learned that, in the end, math does have some legitimate uses. But I digress… I think writers start out as voracious readers, and in that particular regard, I started young and continue to this day.
