When you did you start writing?

In January of 2014 I joined Twitter, but didn’t start writing poetry on Twitter until that summer after finding amazing writers and what was on there.  I had no idea the community of writers supporting each other or the freedom to write what and who you are.  With encouragement from a friend I met on Twitter, I jumped in. I didn’t even know I wanted to write poetry, but the fit was right.
