I started to write small essays and poems when I was a child. By the age of 13 I had written 2 novels, a love story and an action story. It was before the digital age and most of my work is lost now. Few people ever read my work as I was very afraid of critics, even tho everybody always loved it. I wish I could continue that hobby some day. I love to tell stories.
Everything I ever wrote was about something that happened, or based on something that happened.
By the way a few people write around here, I'm guessing I'm not alone.
