MARSocial Special Interview: Question & Answers #4

Hello everyone! So, finally we received all answers from our participants from MARSocial author network. Are you excited to read the answers yet? Question #4 is “When did you decide to become a writer?” from Viv Drewa.

Let’s check out the answers from all 11 author participants !

1) Coleman Weeks

I have wrote since Grammar School, maybe I should have been listening more?

2) Viv Drewa

In 1963 after reading JR Greene’s “The Whistling Sword”. I had read all the Hardy Boy and Nancy Drew mysteries and wanted to try something new. Greene’s novel took me on an adventure in the Middle East following a young boy who met a group traveling led by Ghengus Khan. It was thrilling and I was interested in writing from that point on.

3) K. J. Rollinson

I have written stories as long as I can remember, but it was not until I joined Wordplay Writers’ Forum, Spain, which has its own publishing firm, that I thought having my books published.

4) Sam Reese

I’ve always written and told stories of some sort, but I started actively writing back in college, probably ten years or so ago.

5) Neil McGowan

  I’ve wanted to write for as long as I can remember – I think I was 4 or 5 when I wrote my first ‘book’ and illustrated it. (It was a sheet of paper folded in half to make the pages.)

6) Marion Lovato

I started writing poetry when I was in college and always thought about writing a novel.  Thinking was as far as I got!  However, when I became a cat owner, I had to share all the funny things.

7) Jaro Berce

It was not a time stamp somewhere in the past. It was rather a process that I followed. It begun by publishing professional subject articles about the researches I did. Becoming more conscious of the society I slowly moved to a “lighter” genre writing for public newspapers. As there were thoughts and subjects accumulating in my mind writing a book was not so far apart.

8) Marie Lavender

I often chuckle at this question because I can recall at an early age telling people, “I’m going to be a writer!”  Actually, I used the terms writer/author/novelist interchangeably, and this is the truth.  The moment you put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard with the intent of “writing”, you’re a writer.  The moment those words spill out of you, sometimes even chaotically, you’re automatically a writer.  I have always been a writer, and I probably started this wild journey when I was nine years old.  Another thing I want to point out is that I didn’t just up and decide to be a writer.  It chose me.  I could no more stop “writing” than I could stop the passage of time.

9) LaRae Parry

I didn’t decide. My desire to write is an umbilical urge.

10) Theresa Moretimer

 I have been writing all my life. I started at the age of 5 telling scary stories about the areas we would drive through and after the ordeal I went through I wrote a book and published it.

11) Annie Edmonds

Thanks Vivi, I love this question. I don’t think it’s a decision that you make. You either are or you aren’t. I have to write. I constantly have one or two stories going on in my head at all times. It’s just finding the time to put them down on paper so to speak. 

The next question is “There was recently a message on ‘Books and Writers’ saying ‘please stop giving your books away’. What do you feel about this?” from Kathy. Stay tuned with us for the next post !
