Becoming A Writer

Over at Rachel's blog, she referenced Diana Peterfreund's post about when she knew she was a writer. I posted a similar story about this on the Villa in Tuscany blog, but that was way back in August.

So here's my story.

Tell me yours!


  1. What a great story, Melissa! Thanks for sharing it. Mine is here: My Writing Story

  2. Aaack - no time right now to write my story. But let's just say it was pretty darned early for me :-)

  3. I've only started feeling like a writer recently (after blogging for seven months and getting through my second novel).

    To be fair, though, I started writing pretty intricate stories around 8 or 9 years old. The same time I started reading Edgar Allan Poe and other adult level writing. At 15 I wrote a short novel, which I reworked into a full novel at 17 - 18. I wrote a few short stories in college, then took a long break until I was 30. Now, after a few years of regular writing, I feel like I'm getting somewhere in the learning process. I know I the process never ends, though.


I love to hear from you!
