Like most authors, I started writing when I was a kid–I don’t remember how early. I wrote song lyrics and little rhymes and worked up from there. What started me most recently was a prompt from someone who’d read my writing before I quit for a while. She got me into it again, and I haven’t looked back.
I never remember precisely when I first started writing fiction and what sparked my creativity. But I date it back at least as far as 1997, the year my dad died, though I think it started before then. I’d started a mystery back in the ’80s, which my friend had read and liked, but I never finished it. She encouraged me to write again, so I started another mystery. I finished it, but it was the biggest hunk o’ junk I’ve ever written. Still, just having written it kicked me into gear.
What continues to spark my creativity, on my current project? As I write this, I’m not sure it’s entirely sparked. So many other things are going on in my life that my current WIP is sitting dormant. I’m anxious to get back to it.
