How did you fall in love with writing?

In this episode I present you with a simple question in the name of sharing our writing experiences: How did you fall in love with writing?
I talk about how I came to love the writing process (or what follows, actually), but I’d be very interested to know what got your juices flowing for the first time. We’ve all had such different beginnings.

So with that, I ask you to think back and tell us how you came to be a writer. What was it that first made you pick up the pen and paper? Did it come natural or have you had to work on it?

As ever, use the comments section below to share your thoughts and let’s have a good old chit-chat!
