First book I ever ” wrote” was a knock off of The How and Why Book of Microscopes.
I did it with my Mother’s help and that was the only significant thing I remember about it.
How lucky I was to have a wonderful mother who encouraged my dream of being a writer!
All writers begin by finding something they like, something they want to be, and copying it.
The good ones come to understand the form underneath what they are copying and move to develop their own material using the form.
So all writers are standing on the shoulders of all writers who came before them.
We develop our own voices by observing and copying and moving the conversation forward.
And everyone is in on the conversation.
So everyone reads and listens and watches everyone else. That’s a definition of civilization right there.
But writers are the ones leading the way. They are the ones who get copied and emulated and studied.
Being a writer is a definition of leadership.
If you would like to lead in your field it’s time to start writing about it.
No matter where you are in your development the only place to start is right where you are.
