Keep writing…

25 Mar

I have been jotting down ideas and short stories for as long as I can remember. One of the greatest moments in my life was when I learn to read. I’ve always loved books and longed to share my own stories with readers. Since I have published two books, I have not stopped turning my ideas into stories. I write constantly. When I meet people I also remind them of the possibility that they might show up in one of my stories.

I get my inspiration from everything and everyone that I come into contact with. I can be standing in the backyard with the dog looking at the morning sky and get flooded with ideas. I think this began to happen once I made a commitment to become an author. Writers always joke that they hear voices. I now know that what they mean is that characters live inside of them and show up often forcing us to pay attention to them. That’s why I always have a pen and piece of paper or jot the idea down on my cell phone.

Writing to be published or simply to put your ideas on paper is an enjoyable thing to do. We won’t all be bestselling authors but we will be successful in bringing our dreams to life. Not everyone will like our stories and they may even leave unkind reviews. Do NOT let that stop you from writing. Follow your dreams and don’t allow negative people to discourage you. Sometimes there are helpful negative reviews but then there are harmful reviews. Remember this… the story is your baby. It’s your child and you brought it to life in the way you thought it should be told.

Keep writing and do NOT ever give up!

    I like the way you think…. and i would love to take some words as quotation. “… We won’t all be bestselling authors but we will be successful in bringing our dreams to life.” yeah…. sometimes people will give a bad reviews but hey this is life, and people have right to say as we also have the right to write, right? 🙂

    Keep up the good work. hope we can keep in touch.

    best regard,

      Thanks! It’s a waste of time for us to become offended. I’ve lived long enough to know that a lot of what people say has nothing to do with me. Took me a while to get here but I’m here. LOL! Good luck!
