Thanks to Maggie Storer for telling me about this children's writing competition. Children as young as 5 are encouraged to write 500 words. The prizes are stacks of books. Really big stack of books. *sigh* If I'd started writing aged 5 I might have written a massive stack of books by now.
Did you start writing as a child? (I didn't - mid 30s for me) Do you think it matters?
