Re: How Did You Become a Writer?


Barbara G.Tarn

I started writing in the late 70s, my first “official” story (which included illustrations) is from the summer of 1978. I have a bookshelf of notebooks from the 80s, and another bookshelf with manuscript either typed with a manual typewriter or on the computer. So I’ve been writing nonstop ever since, but for 25 years only in my mother tongue (Italian). Then a rejection from a publisher gave me this idea of writing in English… and here I am, ten years later, indie publishing at last (after attempts at comic book zines in the 1990s)! šŸ˜€
I’m a writer but also an artist, so I do both novels and graphic novels… guess I never really grew up… and I consider myself married to Mr Writing! šŸ˜‰
