What made you decide to become a writer?

I believe I was born a writer, born to use my words to help this world in some small way. I just did not see it for many years. As you can see from my experience in the youth hostel, I think at that defining moment I realized I actually was a writer already. It was so clear and obvious I did not know how I could have missed it. From then on I have actively written, whether for the newspaper, a contest, myself or in the hopes of publication in book form. I see myself as a writer who does other things to survive but always a writer at my centre.

Writing gives you the illusion of control, and then you realize it’s just an illusion, that people are going to bring their own stuff into it.
– David Sedaris
