You Know You're a Writer When...
Excerpts from the book You Know You're a Writer When... by Adair Lara
You were nine when you started writing poems, twelve when you moved on to tragic stories.
Case in point: when I was 12, I think I wrote a story about a young woman alone in her apartment when there is a mysterious stranger who knocks on the door. I believe that was the same year that I tried to emulate Gone with the Wind and write a tragic Civil War-based novel.
