I didn't know I'd be a writer when I was a child. I was a creative kid, with lots of weird ideas, but I wanted to work in a pet store, because I like animals. Thankfully I learned what pet store employees actually do, and decided to pursue more uh...creative outlets that didn't involve cleaning up after stinky animals.
I think by late high school I wanted to be a writer, after I went through a depressing goth poetry therapy phase. I believe many depressed weird and creative teenagers go through that phase. Don't worry. I'm much happier now and dedicate my writing skills to funny and interesting stories.
