When Did You Know You Wanted To Be A Writer?

I watched the movie Stand By Me recently. I’ve seen it countless times
before when I was younger, but it’s been a while. When I was a kid we watched it
all the time on HBO because it was on every other day.

      It was the story that made me want to write. Later in life I searched out the book
Different Seasons and was amazed. The Body and Rita
Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption
blew me away.

      At one point in the movie something truly amazing happened. I realized that not only did I know
the movie that made me want to become a writer. I realized the exact scene.
     When I was a kid I remember viewing this scene and thinking it was the coolest thing ever.
Some kids wanted to be basketball players, others movie stars, I thought sitting
at home in front of a computer and writing was the ultimate.  I still do.
     When did you know?
