However, the comparison ends there, because her talents far outnumber my own... but I'll let her speak for herself!

1. When and why did you start (writing, playing, singing, painting, etc)?
The first time I remember writing was when I was about five years old—I had cancer at the time, and had just read a book written by a girl who had also had Leukemia. And I thought, 'Hey, I can do that,' and so I wrote about four pages and then decided it was boring and quit—probably partly because I liked drawing the 'illustrations' (read: crayon caricatures) better than writing the sentences. I think I tried writing sometime before then, but I know I was drawing Peter Pan and Tinkerbell (complete with labels) when I was about four. Singing... well, I tried to sing since I was about two. Then, at about six, I magically learned to carry a tune. Probably because that was when I was enrolled in piano lessons.
Thanks, Ally for being today's Featured Artist!
