I remember a story I wrote in 6th grade, called The Summer I Went to Honolulu (and no, I’d never been to Hawaii). I also remember one of my teachers complimenting me and encouraging me to enter it in a contest. I never did enter, which I regret to this day.

I’m thinking because this story is so memorable for me (I still  have it), that it was around the age of 12 when I started to fall in love with writing.

So today’s question is this: Is there a particular story, poem, non-fiction piece, etc. you remember writing as a child? Maybe the very first thing you ever wrote or a specific moment you fell in love with the writing process?
