I first got the taste for writing when I was in high school. My ability to visualize scenes and characters would actually distract me from classwork and eventually I started putting my ideas on paper. While I was in college I wrote less, but the ideas didn't stop coming. After my wife and I started our family, I decided to start writing again. For me, it is almost therapeutic to take all the thoughts and images floating around in my head and organize them into a story.
