In a totally unscientific survey of only the best minds on Twitter, Facebook and pretty much the whole world wide web thing (meaning anyone who either accidentally or on purpose chose to answer the question in the survey of April 19th), we have learned that a majority of said folks started writing as a child.
My favorite (and I guess that's why it was an option) was the 1 respondent who choose "None of your business :-) With the smiley face as part of the choice, I am guessing it was in jest or they are just being very very secretive about their pre-childhood beginnings.
The chart may be tough to read, so here are the results of the 17 votes:
- Started writing as a child - 9
- Started in my teens - 6
- Started in my 50s - 1
- None of your business :-) - 1
The survey is still open (and probably will be until the Mayan Calendar says enough is enough). For those who may not have taken it, visit the survey here.
Last question since I need ideas, what are you planning on having for dinner on Mother's Day? (May 13th for those who may have forgotten).
Thanks for your suggestions.
