This is the most popular question to a writer. Where did he start his writing? Why he decided to write books and novels and what for?
Many writers have different answers on this age’s question. Some of the artists still do not have an answer they would be proud of. But for the rest it is simply – they do not know what to do else. Yes, that’s it. They just good enough only in one thing they can do. In writing.
For sure, before they wrote their most popular novels, books, magazines, artists tried themselves in lots places.
For example, George R. R. Martin spent his first years of the work’s career working at the University of Iowa, with the professor he finished university with.
Doesn’t sound very tough. Isn’t it?
By the way, he started to write in far 1971 and become popular only in 2005, when his first book A Song of Ice and Fire, (which was published in only 1996) were filmed in the TV serial “The Game of Thrones”, which admits as the most popular serial based on the series of the books from 2005 till 2017.

Who can help to develop all the writing talents of the authors? No doubts the best thing is the smart and talented tutors, based on the college or university, the writers must pass.
