About This Blog

Hello,

My name is Sarah.  I was born with a Disability that makes it harder to walk.  I use crutches and wheelchairs to get around.  I also have a brother with a disability that is a lot more severe than mine.  He is completely bed-bound. 

When I was in school I hated writing.  Do you remember how the teachers used to give out sheets with prompts.  They'd be things like:  "Write about a family vacation."  or "Write about your favorite sport."  My life was always too boring to write nonfiction, and too complicated to write about the non boring stuff.  But then when I was in third grade my teacher used a different prompt altogether.  She gave out a picture with a whole bunch of characters on it and she said to pick one and write about it.  This was my first introduction to writing fiction, and from there I never looked back.
