My older brother is half-way through his first novel.
My younger brother started writing his book too.
My seven-year-old daughter carries a notebook around with her and is constantly writing things down. She wants to be a writer when she grows up, just like her mom.
The stories they write make me happy, and I wonder if they'd all be writing now if I hadn't tried it first. I'm glad I did.
Do you have friends or family who have caught the writing bug?
