I wrote my first story when I was six. I don't remember what it was about, I just remember that the main character was named Timmy. I showed the story to my first grade teacher and she was impressed that I had written it all by myself. In fourth grade, my teacher told my mother that I loved to write and during that year, I received several certificates for creative writing assignments.
After performing spoken word in college, I had planned on having a great writing career, but LIFE got in the way! I've decided that it's not too late and that's why I came to Hubpages. I write for Yahoo! Contributor as well and I've published a novel, All Fall Down, which is available on Amazon.
My motto is that it's only too late when you're dead! Everyone should go for their dreams even if they've been sidetracked.
