Number 1 Prompt: How did you become a writer?

I have a vivid imagination. I read anything I can get my hands on from an early age. I had to get my parents’ permission to read the books I wanted to read in the adult section. It went from reading stories to enjoying writing assignments throughout school. I still have writings from a high school creative writing class. 
I think my teachers thought I over did it sometimes. One comment was “Very creative thoughts, but a bit unrealistic” when we were asked how we would spend $1000 dollars. As a sixth grader I had no idea what a thousand dollars looked like. We were dirt poor. I immediately bought a horse ranch and horses. I wrote my dream. Ever since then I try to write dreams.

My newest project is to practice writing and I found an online class that will hopefully focus my writing and put it to good use this year.
