How old were you when you first started writing /reciting your own poetry..

I know in my case I was making up songs when I was a kid and they turned into written lyrics probably around age 13 and then morphed into more structured type poetry years later when it really wasn't as convenient ( or time allowing) to pick up my guitar and create

Oh this is a hard one... I have been singing my own stuff since I was little according to my parents. But i never started writing (outside of school) till I was 11 or 12. I got serious around 14.

Hmm, like Leah06, my parents tell me that I've been inventing little songs and the like since I was too small to remember. Dad called it being creative, Mom labelled it being wierd. Both have always been very supportive of it though. I started writing serious poetry in college, when I discovered Dreamer's Reality. I kind of fell out of the writing habit when I got my degree and moved away. Being without a computer and readily available internet access for two years, you know... I'd like to get back into it now, though. Just not feeling terribly inspired.

I was 17 I still remember where I was at the time and what I was doing. In fact the first is posted on this site. The title is "Tears", and each time I read it I reminise and cannot believe how deep and passionate my writing has got since then.

I was i 4th grade. We had an assignment to pick something in the room and write about it. I chose to write about a picture of an eagle flying. "Soaring eagle, Flying high through the sky...." I think that's how it started out.....that was, what, 13 years ago? lol.

Was 12 when I first started writing. But wasn't until I was 17 or 18 when I really started becoming addicted to writing.
