Like, when did you really first discover you could or wanted to write? Also, what also keeps you writing even to that day you started?
For me… I started in 5th grade. I wrote a short story about my two cousins meaning Casper for the first time. My teacher gave it a lot of praise and said I had a talent for writing. I didn’t really actually pick it up full-time until maybe my late teens. I first started dabbling with fanfiction, but I felt like that wasn’t right for my talents… so I moved onto original fiction.
What keeps me writing is that it helps me express myself more. I’m somewhat bad at verbal and emotional expression, which has a lot to do with my autism. So, when I write… I find it’s a much better way for me to get out my thoughts and all that. People are often shocked at how well I write while having autism.
