The First Big Thing-Week #2 Where did you Get the Idea For Your Novel?
You might want to check out Gail's week # 2 question Week # 2, and my week # 1 post.
Judy: As a young girl, twelve to fifteen, I wrote stories. I'd read a book and then create my own characters and settings. After I graduated from high school, I took courses through the mail. Writing in journals was an outlet, which I continue to do, I still have some of the old journals. As time went by, I realized there was a particular time span in my life that I viewed as exciting and adventuresome, I wanted to write a novel about this period of time. The advice given is write about what you know. I knew I wanted to put what happened into words, so I came up with a semi-autobiography mixed with fiction.
