6. Your first memory of writing

I don’t know if my memory is accurate on this being my first ever piece of writing, but I recall writing a story for school in the 3rd grade, called The Mystery of the Emerald-Eyed Cat. I don’t for the life of me remember what the story was actually about, but I remember I bound it in green construction paper and drew some creepy cat eyes on the cover. I also remember that right around then I was going through a phase where I would occasionally change my name a bit just to make it sound different, and I signed my story: by Tracey Lynn Marie Clarke, even though Marie has never been, nor will ever be, part of my name. Kids are silly, aren’t they?
