i started writing at a rather young age. my first memory of writing for recreation was when i was 9 years old. i sat down with a pencil and paper, and wrote three pages front and back. since then it has always been a part of my life. i started in with poetry in perticular when i was 11, and it worked out best for me. i've gone thru my share of notebooks, and have a dream of someday publishing my work.
