My former boss once told me about her eight-year-old granddaughter.
All she wants to do is write stories. ‘Grandma, let’s write a story!’ Every time she draws a picture, she must write an entire story to go with it!
I could not tell her, and indeed cannot describe to anyone, just how much joy that statement gave me. But it also demanded an answer to the question – why are some people seemingly born with the inherent desire or drive to write? Is it genetic code or spiritual gift?
