Living in a Writer’s Paradise

Good. I got the obligatory third-person basics out of the way. Here’s how I got to this point…

I spent the summer between 9th and 10th grades searching the known galaxy for something that would assist me in making sense out of life…for some interaction with life that would bring me happiness…for some grand event or revelation that would explain it all to me.

It took me almost that entire summer, but that ‘grand event’ finally found its way to me.

Actually…all that really happened was that I participated in a goof-ball air band skit at a youth group retreat. Yet, even after the laughter and the cheering faded, my mind kept asking me the same question: what would things be like if that thrown-together-at-the-last-second air band was actually a real band?

Fat chance. None of the other guys played instruments. So, instead, I spent the rest of that summer—the rest of that year!—writing stories based on the imagined scenario that they did. And, when I ran out of music-related ideas, I picked new subjects to write about. Sometimes, I invented my own subjects.

I’ve found many things to do in life since that time, but writing stories has always been with me. Sometime, the writing was for fun. Sometimes, it was therapeutic. Sometimes, though, it was for the same reason that got me started in the first place: there were things that I saw, or heard, or were apart of, or outright imagined, that I wanted to relive through words.

I suspect that will never change with me.

Thanx for checking out my writing mind.

S!

  1. Great story. May I include it in the book I’m working on where real people who write share about writing. It’s to inspire people to write. It’s very visual with pictures of writing spaces and tools. So far 100 people are part of it and I’d love to include this story.
    Your name, age and location will be included and all credit goes to you.
    All good if you want to decline, just thought I’d check.
    Kind regards, JD
