You know how you're doing something and suddenly you get an idea and then you realize life is not going to be the same forever. I'm sure many of us would've come across such life-changing ideas. That's precisely how writing happened to me.
A few years back, all it took to start writing was my Dad's new laptop and an agenda-free home-alone Sunday. Almost close to a decade later I'm still writing (I'd give you the actual number of years, but decade sounds cooler).

I always had an interest in grammar. I liked the rules and loved the exceptions (rebels like me) to the rules so much that I used to read Wren and Martin when I could find time. One day we had a talent exam and there was creative writing, which I had attempted for the first time. I wrote something and remember giving a last minute twist. Imagine my surprise when I won a special mention for scoring the highest in creative writing. That's when I silently thanked my Grandma, the books that I'd been reading and Wren and Martin for all the story prompts.
