There are many reasons why we all write. Plenty of us have always wanted to be a writer, ever since we could hold a #2 pencil in our hands. For some, it's because of an amazing author or teacher, that sparked the creativity inside of us. For others, maybe it wasn't until more recently that we realized writing can be an amazing way to express our creativity.
Whatever it is that made you decide, I'd like to know:
What or who inspired you to become a writer?
