I still can’t believe I reached a day where I could openly blog about this.
Writing has opened so many new doors for me which I’m immensely grateful for. It has saved me from a lot of heartaches and made me truly understand what it’s like to be in someone else’s shoes.
In the past 3 years I’ve learnt a lot about writing . I began writing a short story that somehow turned into a novel. As soon as I started I was surprised that it wasn’t the sort of story that would end in 5 pages. So I took a leap of faith and asked for help . The advice I constantly got was to keep going even if it’s hard, even if it’s emotional just keep writing.
Writing a novel is both exciting and terrifying at the same time. There are a lot of “What ifs” involved and I’m still learning that there is no right no wrong.
I loved seeing my characters progress through their tribulations. Every character I’ve written is unique and I loved creating this new world which I dove into at a time of continuous losses.
Writing has been my companion, my baby, my therapy and my pride. It has been challenging but which dream isn’t?
There are tons of issues I’d love to write about and a lot of depth that I’m looking forward to dive into.
This is also a chance to thank you all for your support♥ I’m extremely grateful to the people who have kept me going when I was freaking out or even when my words never made sense. Your advice is planted so deeply into my heart that I unpack them and use them whenever I feel low. Your encouraging comments are the fuel that keep me going and whatever happens I’ll forever be grateful for this.
I wish some day my novel will make its way into the world. For now I’ll just learn to enjoy the journey.
