Tell TheNextBigWriter why you started writing and you might get published in their upcoming book project.

Do you remember when you first realized you wanted, or even needed to write? When you realized it was an itch that wouldn't go away? TheNextBigWriter is looking for writers to tell about their "gotcha" moment in a story between 1,500-5,000 words. The story must show the moment, or moments when you realized that you were destined to spend your life writing.

We're going to select ten that tell the most insightful, thought provoking, and interesting stories and offer the authors a paid publishing contract to have their work included in our upcoming TheNextBigWriter book My Writing Life.
