It had to start somewhere: was it a particular story? A house full of books? An unforgettable teacher? Or was it a favorite band, a pile of magazines, the freedom of writing for the digital world? As readers and writers our passion for words has its own origin story. Hear these noted wordsmiths share what compelled them to pick up the pen.

Harus dimulai dari suatu tempat: apakah itu sebuah cerita? Sebuah rumah penuh dengan buku? Seorang guru yang tak terlupakan? Atau apakah itu sebuah band favorit, setumpuk majalah, kebebasan menulis untuk dunia digital? Sebagai pembaca dan penulis, hasrat kita akan kata-kata memiliki cerita asalnya sendiri. Dengarkan kata-kata yang dicatat ini dalam berbagi apa yang memaksa mereka mengambil penanya.
