@prosewitch Actually, no, strangely enough. I've been writing since I could remember...when I was little I drew pictures and dictated to my mom what the words should be, and then she wrote it and stapled the sides so it was like a book.

I don't remember a time where I wasn't writing

@pauljessup same, I do have books that affected me deeply on a personal level but I don't feel like I have an author or book that influenced me wrt writing

@prosewitch Right! And I think...the question was, what book *made* you want to be a writer, like made you go "now I want to do this"

And that question is nonsensical to me?

@pauljessup Exactly! Whenever I see articles like that I feel like if I don't fit that mold then something's wrong with me. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one that didn't get the question. I'll try to remember those articles are mostly for clicks and it's ok if I don't fit in. 😁
