Ever since then, writing has a been a constant devotion and necessity in her life. Whether she is jotting down bits of wacky conversation between her unsuspecting friends or writing what she thinks will be the quintessential great american novel, she can always be found armed with some kind of messy notebook and various multi-colored pens.
