Four Years of Writing

Four years ago we had just celebrated my grandfather’s last birthday and my heart was shattered. Losing him was like losing an entire lifetime of love and safety. Even though I didn’t know it back then there were so many stories and emotions in me that needed an outlet. I felt that my grief would come out better in writing, because there was so much I couldn’t say out loud. It was a scary experience but my imagination took me far and my short story slowly became a novel.

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 was hoping to achieve more this year but 2020 has been terrifying. As I blow out the virtual candles of this anniversary I hope we keep using our voices to be kind and gentle towards others. I hope better days are coming and real soon.

To my fellow writers I hope my words remind you that you’re stronger than you ever imagined, we’ve sat home with our thoughts, anxieties, grief and emotions. We’ve tried to create something new during a pandemic. So if you have writer’s block just take it easy. Nothing we ever go through goes to waste, we’ll always have this outlet forever. Try to make use of the un-certainty and jot down short ideas of what you’d like to write about in the future. Even if we feel we have nothing to say now, your inspiration will return soon. Someday we’ll tell unique stories again.
