“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten”
Hello , Melissa, and welcome to our little corner of the blogosphere! I’d like to start with the statement above about fairy tales. What do you think?
I think it's beautiful and empowering.
When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?
Oddly enough it was my mom who suggested the profession. I was busily penning my first novel and telling her all about it when she asked, "Melissa what do you want to do when you grow up?" (I was probably 15 at the time.) I said, "I don't know." (And I really didn't.) She then said, "Why don't you be a writer?" The question rather blew me away. It had never dawned on me that I could be a writer. But it was so obvious. I haven't looked back since.
