When I was five years old I wrote a short story titled “The Man Who Was Pregnant,” which (obviously) was turned into the critically acclaimed movie Junior starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. (Just kidding. Not about the first part though; that part was true.) Fast forward two decades and that publication still remains the one most of my family remembers me for. Yikes.
In high school and college I focused a lot on writing, but it was primarily academic essays (boooring). My senior year of college, however, I took a creative writing class with a professor who told us the most important thing to remember is that writing is like exercising: you only get stronger if you do it a lot. So, I’m taking that advice to heart now. I’m CC Rider. And now CC Rider writes.
