It's the first Wednesday of the month...how the hell did that happen?...and its time for Alex J. Cavanaugh's The Insecure Writer's Support Group!
Trolling the blogosphere I noticed another blogger mentioned they had just begun a fiction collaboration with another writer.
It reminded me of how I began writing stories.
While in high school a friend and I would write chapters to each other in a notebook and exchange it between classes.
Even then I was writing romantic stories.
Girls in love with Rock Gods go to see them in concert. Rock Gods notice girls. Rock Gods fall in love with girls and take them on tour with them, living happily ever after.
You know that story, right?
The challenging part was you never knew what your friend was going to write. It could have been anything. Whatever it was you just had to pick up from there and keep going.
I hated high school. Absolutely, positively hated high school. But, writing those stories is about the only happy memory of those years that I have.
Can you remember how you started writing?
