Childhood stories of famous writers
We all have our favorite authors that we get lost reading their fascinating books. One has to wonder - "Did they always have this fame and success?" The answer is "No". Just like you and I, all of these authors had some very relatable experiences of growing up. Much of our childhood memories of growing up are dealing with self esteem issues, bullying, family matters, etc. By going through many similar experiences, some of these authors took their experiences and became "storytellers" of sharing their life stories with others. Whatever experiences each of us go through can define who we are or what we want to change about us. In the end, we have the capability to be "who we want to be".
