The Writer Will Take Your Questions Now #328 -- It's Elementary
When did you write your first story and how old were you?
If I remember correctly (after all, it was a long time ago), I wrote my story in elementary school as an assignment. I want to say it was either fourth or fifth grade. But I do remember the story. It was an absolutely awful super hero story that barely made it to the back of the handwritten, wide-ruled page torn out of a wire notebook and handed in.
It was full of every comic book cliche I could cram into 250 or so words. But it was a start. And like all starts, it was a crucial first step.
