    Portrait of a young writer

    I’ve always wanted to be a writer. That being said, I decided at a very young age that I needed to live the writer’s life. At age seven I began carrying around a note-book. At age 13 I actually began writing coherent stories. By the time high school came around, I was an expert at writing the first five pages of the next great American novel and then laying it to rest.

I know she is smelling the sweet August air and dreaming of the Fall.
