Happy Friday. When I was teaching I used to look forward to Friday because it was the day before the weekend started. I still like Friday because my schedule on Saturday and Sunday is more relaxed.
So for our Friday Firsts. When was the first time you decided you wanted to be a writer?
I don't recall an exact time I made this discovery. As a kid I was a non-reader and also a non-writer, so I did not always want to be a writer, like many of you did. My desire grew slowly after I became a teacher. My students and my sons get the credit for opening my eyes to the joys of reading and then writing. So all I can say is you're never too young to try something new.
If you're interested, you can read more about my adventures in writing at J. Q. Rose's blog today.
Have a wonderful weekend.
