Fiction Diaries: Blog Hop

Sorry guys, I misunderstood the blog hop. Yep, I did. I thought I was supposed to write my own question. NOW I understand I am to answer the question from Fiction Diaries. I do apologize!
Tha answer thought to "When did I know I wanted to be a writer?"

I don't remember when I knew. I have always wanted to write stories. I have notebook after notebook full of stories from ages back. So I guess I have always wanted to write. I had an Uncle who told the most marvelous stories when I was a kid. I would sit for hours listening to him tell his awesome stories. He inspired me and probably my mother too, because she took up storytelling and now my kids and their cousins sit for hours and listen to their grandmother tell the most amazing stories!

My question: What are your favorite writing help books? (Answer next week)

Last week's Question: Where is your favorite place to grab ideas for your characters?

Answer: I love to read the newspaper. There are loads of ideas in there! Another great place to check for ideas is a magazine. Stories abound and it is easy to mash two stories together and come up with an extraordinary situation to put your character through during your book.
