Like xaenyth, I was writing as soon as I could hold a pencil – and I used to dream about stories too. I suppose the turning point for me was when my fifth grade teacher was so impressed with a story I’d written she took out books on writing for me from the library. She told me I was a writer and I guess I believed her. LOL.
Been a lot of ups and downs but I now make my living as a writer (copy writing) though I’d rather make my living as an author – still working on that. 😉
