OMG, so funny. I saw the title of your thread and thought "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." Previous to reading that book, I could not write. I remember we would have these assignments in 7th grade called Monday paragraphs. All you had to do was write one paragraph, on any topic. It had to have a thesis, supporting points and a conclusion. I *hated* it. Struggled. It was torturous.

Then I read HHGTTG and it was mind-opening. Writing is like talking! Duh! All I have to do is marshal my thoughts into some semblance of organization, and then write it out the way I would explain it if I had a lot of time to rehearse and polish my key points. I am now always more than happy to sit down and put my thoughts on paper. It really was life-changing.
