    the first time i ever put pen to paper in a poetic way was when i miscarried a baby........  I had also returned home to my place of birth, and where my family lived, and everything was a bit confusing........  I found out my uncles were lovers of poetry also, and i never really stopped.  I love to write, all the time, but do not want to write for a source of income.  I just want it to be a hobby.

    I was a young child, who grew up a lefty, and my uncle was the only lefty in the family. My uncle, my fathers brother was killed while serving in the army, before i was born. He was a poet, and a good one too.
      He seemed like a legend to me, the things he would do, jumping off hundred foot towers into creeks, he was in recon when he went into the military, and he saved a few lives along the way, he was awesome!! I spent the summer with my grandparents, who always encouraged me, and they asked me if I ever tried to write, like my uncle.  I never thought about it before, but that summer  iwrote my first poem, and they kept coming and coming, I was a natural!!
      I was a child and wrote wonderful!!! It is not something thats easy to make money from, poetry is no comodity, but for my spirit, it is.

    Good question for me!  when my dad became ill with cancer I started t write again as a way to let off my emotional pain.  I had been a writer in college but had given it up for a time.  When he did pass which was a little over a year ago, I wrote like crazy to release the pain that I was experience and quite honestly it saved me from going insane with grief myself.  So now all I want to do is write.  so from pain if chaneled properly can create passion.

    In about grade 7 I was standing in the schoolyard and for an unknown reason I thought "I have to remember this because one day I will have to write about it". It was many years later when I discovered that I could write, I remembered that thought, and here I am writing about it.

    When I was little, I would write when a dream or story idea came into my head. I got back into writing because after years of studies, and having no hobbies, I desperately needed a creative outlet.  So, for a lot of years my writing was mostly role play and fan fiction.  It was so much fun creating storylines with others! But something kept drawing me back to this one original story, and so finally I made the commitment to write it.
