A Writer Since Childhood

I’m going off my blogging schedule – I know, but I HAD to share these frightful discoveries with you.

Whenever I read author bios, for the most part they talk about how they’ve been writing since they were children. I never really connected to that, only remembering one story that I wrote as a kid, Deakin the Dolphin, as a school assignment. Coming from a family of writers, I thought this love for storytelling started much later.

Clearly I’m challenged, or my concussion hit me WAY harder than I thought. The ultimatum from the parents came to clear my crap from their home. In amongst all the junk, I found a pink binder marked “Victoria”. In it I found… a treasure trove of stories. Mostly awful, but what can you expect from your seven year old self. 

What this discovery did for me was awaken the realization that my adoration for stories, whether as the writer or the reader, is deep rooted. 

Here are some of my gems… ahem.



Fun fact – I seemed to name every female character Julie and every male character Peter. What would Freud say? I also seemed to fear animals dying… Thanks to my Mum, I know that these are mostly from ’92 or ’94 (if anyone says this was before they were born… that’s a warning).

Anyone else have some of their early writing gems to share?
