Before I started writing I told stories that I came up with to my friends and family. It was than I discovered that I wanted to be an author. So, when I started writing I wrote almost every day. I was very anxious to get all the things I imagined onto a sheet of paper, but when I finished I let my friends, family, and teachers read it.

It was later that I took my interest in writing more serious by taking a creative writing course in high school and learned about the different styles of writing and how to use them properly, and this greatly improved my own writing skills.
