Map of THE WRITER When i was young my father used to encourage me to read newspapers magazines and story books .When I asked him why he did so he would tekk me that he had discovered something special in me that he was helping me to develop. At fast i felt like he was bothering me alot but with time i started to read them and everyday my father would ensure that i had newspaper, magazine or a storybook As time passed i realised that i had the ability to write stories about important issues in the society so i started to write this story and gave them to my father to annalyse and mark. I later came to realise that the more i read newspapers, magazine and storybook the more i developed better skills and knowldge on how to write stories. Today i thank my late father so much for his profound support in helping me develop my writting skills. Read more.
