What got you into writing? Was it a book you read? Was it an innate interest? Have you been writing your whole life, or are you fairly new to writing? I used to write a lot as a child, though I never really realized the significance of my interest until about two years ago. I think the book that really got me inspired to pursue writing was Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes. This was the first time I realized how powerful writing could be. I haven't looked back since. I also had an English teacher in my first year of college that made writing really appealing to me. I get frustrated when I can't express myself correctly when I'm talking to someone. Writing a more effective way for me to express myself, and it has helped me express myself more clearly when I talk.
