Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
When I was nine, I wrote a story about an evil princess who let her villagers live in poverty while she kept all the riches. Thieves attacked the village, looking for something of value. The villagers pointed them toward the castle and allowed them to kill the princess. The guards, having been badly treated as well, did nothing to stop it. This is heavy subject matter for a nine year old! Perhaps I was always destined to write horror!
