I have always know I enjoyed writing, since I was a young child of around eight or so - or maybe even younger, I can't remember a time not liking it. At school and home I would write stories that filled up whole exercise books, even when I was supposed to be doing something else. I don't know where it comes from, really, but writing has always been a part of me and is something that comes quite naturally. I can't imagine never writing again.
When I got my first cheque, as it is said, 'no man but a blockhead writes except for money.'
As a child. I was brought up writing thank you notes to others, then started writing poems and stories and eventually in 7th grade a play called "Rome is Raided"...it was a bloody mess of play where everyone dies...but we produced it in togas onstage in the gym...it was fun.
I knew when I was in the 5th grade and have been writing since. My first short story was for an assignment we all were given to write a story, of our own inspiration, and keep it to 3 pages. By the time I finished my story it was just under 10 pages. When I turned it in I had to explain to the teacher why it was so long. I have and always will be big on details with my stories, whether it is for character development, or to describe a place with all its beauty or flaws.
I have always known, but I didn't get serious about my writing until 2002. I used to take my piggy bank money when I was little to the local drug store to buy pencils and a notebook so I could write.
When my son was in grade school he had to write a short story for class and they put it into hard back and to this day he remembers that story and the fun he and I had writing about our dogs fictional and crazy adventures "The adventures of Sparky"
Maybe when people or friends started reacting with the poems I wrote, when I wrote script for a school role playing and my story appeared unique among others, when I can freely turn my emotion into words, when I realized I can inspire others with my articles, when I became friends with fellow writers..

My question is how do you write a story? I have been interested in writing a story that I can continue on a weekly or even daily basis (Hubs). Now, I have difficulty knowing what I want to do. For example how did J.K. Rowling think about starting Harry Potter? More so than that, how did she come up...
