Day 2: My First Love....

My first love was and has always been writing!!!

I can remember being 6 years old and writing my first book. I don't recall what it was about, but my 1st grade class allowed us to write a series of books, illustrate them and have them published. This was my first introduction to the world of writing and it quickly became a passion of mine.

Throughout the years I was blessed with opportunities to interview celebrities, contribute to Sister 2 Sister as well as the Chicago Defender (not to mention my high school paper lol) and that was all before I hit 16.

Like a child actor, I felt like a child writer, burning myself out by the time I graduated from high school.

In the last few years my desire to write came back, even stronger than before and I've been using my blog as an outlet for my creative juices and random thoughts.
