The First Thing I Ever Wrote

first thing i wrote

(This is from last month but published again after it was lost while updating the blog. So much for making sure everything was prepared before updatingĀ šŸ˜‰Ā )

Okay, so itā€™s not theĀ firstĀ thing I wrote. The first thing I wrote was likely on the back of a horribly uninterpretable picture of a cat made of macaroni. However, below is a snap of the first page I ever wrote on a book.

In March of 2010, my family was going through tough times from illnesses to unexpected events. At the time, I did what I spent much of my childhood doing when stressed: reading. In that case, I was reading Lord of the Rings for the first time.

Let just say I got really inspired by Tolkienā€™s classic series.

Iā€™d never wanted to write a book, but that night at midnight I picked up a penĀ and scribbled away in a notebook. By the end of the next day I had a dozen pages, and two weeks later I had handwritten some 70 pages.

I didnā€™t know it at 12 years old, but three years later that crappy beginning would becomeĀ Black Forest.

I would love to hear your thoughts!
