“W” is for “Writer” – An A-to-Z Blogging Challenge Post

W

For the A-to-Z Challenge 2017 I’m writing all about myself. Every post will be some random fact or bit of information about me that you may or may not have already known. Maybe you’ll learn something! Feel free to let me know! ^_^


This fact should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone, unless you’re just showing up here today for the first time, so I won’t take up too much of your time with this particular post.

I am a writer. I’ve loved writing since I first started coming up with stories in around the third grade. The first time I ever remember writing fiction was for a class project, and I remember it clear as day: I wrote a story called “The Mystery of the Emerald-Eyed Cat”, and signed it “Tracey Lynn Marie Clarke”, even though “Marie” is not part of my name, because I was going through a weird phase. I drew emerald eyes for the cover and pasted it to green paper, and bound it together with green yarn. I was extremely proud of it, and my teacher gave me perfect marks for it.

After that I loved writing stories, and I used to come up with tons of them involving myself and my friends. Eventually I started writing fan fiction, and after that I began coming up with original characters and more intricate plots. I didn’t always write, growing up, but I always came back to writing, one way or another. I always knew that, no matter what else I did with my life, I would also be a writer. That all came together and felt real on the day I self-published my first novel, “Nowhere to Hide“, and recently I published my second novel, the first part in a series, “The Other World: Book One“.

That’s all that really needs to be said about that. It’s a key component of my self, my personality, and my past and future. I’m a writer. Period.


Did you know that I was a writer? Do you even care? 😀 Feel free to leave a comment!

  1. It’s nice to hear about how you got started as a writer! I remember writing my first “book” in 2nd grade, which I made out of loose-leaf and construction paper. It don’t remember anything about the story, except that it was Sci-Fi and that I got a lot of encouragement from my teacher to do more.

    • What’s important is definitely the encouragement. ^_^ I got a lot of that after my little creation as well, and before I knew it I was typing up stories in Microsoft Word and saving them on a 3.5″ floppy disk on the school’s one computer. XD
