I always wanted to be a writer. I yakked about it until my family started putting their fingers in their ears and humming. They got so sick of it someone (I don't remember who) finally asked me why I wasn't writing.
I didn't know how to respond except to sit down at my laptop, open Microsoft word, and start writing. That's when I realized I didn't know how to be a writer. So I went to the local bookstore and bought a few books on writing. The first one suggested keeping a journal so I got a notebook and wrote personal stuff all day long, but nothing I wanted to share with strangers. The second book said writers read a lot. I already did that but I read some more anyway. I loved it, but got so absorbed in reading I didn't have time to write anything. The third one said I should get quiet and let my mind think. So I started taking walks everyday. I got lost twice and bitten by a snake once but didn't come up with any writing material.
Eventually I started wondering what these how-to-write authors weren't telling me. I went back to their books and read them all again and again until I found their secret. It was right there in black and white. Actually, it was in full color, in the pictures. All the writers had little dogs sitting in their laps! So I went right out and got myself a little poodle and now she sits in my lap and I write!
