What is your first memory of writing creatively?
I remember the first poem I wrote was a rhyming poem about the seasons that went something like this "Spring is the time for love and joy and thinking of each other." Ha ha...very terrible!
But in grade three, we had a creative writing component to our English class. About once a week, we were given a writing prompt, and we had to write a story or poem for about fifteen minutes. I remember writing crazy stories that made no sense (not so different from what I do now), and I remember thinking two things: 1) I can do anything I want, and 2) This is fun.
