What did you read as a child that inspires you now?
I didn’t really read as a child. Not really. I had bad reading difficulties, which made life difficult for me going through school, but also weary of books in general. Honestly when I was a early teenager did I start reading Baby Sitters: Little sister and Paul Jennings. They were the only books I could read.
So really I wouldn’t say books as a child inspired me to do anything. If anything they push me away from wanting anything to do with them. anything that wasn’t watching them at the movies or on telly (as Round the Twist was Paul Jennings stories, which is why I liked his, as I’d watched them, making it a whole lot easier for me).
I honestly can’t really tell you what inspired me, though books would have. At least once I really started I was at a time when I knew it was something I could do. Hell, it was something I could do, making up stories, and writing them down, a hell of a lot less embarrassing then what I was originally doing to get them out of my head.
