What Made You Want to Become a Writer..?

I was going through some old books in the house when I came across a school project I made about 10 years go, when I was 11 or 12. It was a project on literature, which included some of my own compositions. This particular one made me laugh. It was just so cute! And it brought back so many memories. Do you ever have those moments..? Which particular stuff do you see lying around the house that reminds you of those moments?

I decided to share this one, because around this time, at that age, and during the making of this project, was about the same time, I decided I wanted to be a writer. I'm sure you have those special moments too... Share them with me.. :-)

Brook and his books

There once was a kid named Brook

Who loves to read and read books.

One day he went to the library

And boy! Isn’t it big!

He picked up one book

That fell on the floor


Inside the book he snooped.

Lovely rivers he crossed,

And blue waters he swam.

To play with the fish and the corals

Who sang

So he tried and picked another one


Inside the book he was down

A cascading waterfall

To the tribes of the Indians

And to the 2nd World War.

At last he chose a little book


Seemed like it’s a dream

For in that page he saw

Peter Pan flying to and fro

Little fairies on the fields

Gremlins hiding in the weeds

And BOOM at last

His adventure was through!

It really is amazing

What books can do to you

It takes you to different places

That you may not have gone through.

Oh, and check out the funny bookish carttons i've included in the article as well! Enjoy!
