My Journey Into Writing

My journey into writing started when I was 13. I had always loved reading and wanted to create my own stories to share with others. I had even taken  creative writing and journalism classes in high school. I am always happy when writing.
 I realized being as shy as I was, that I could best express myself through writing. I started keeping journals that I could use as inspiration for my writing.I also keep a notebook of quotes as inspiration.  Between the ages of 13 and 32 I had started over 200 stories.
One day in 2002 I decided to try my hand at poetry and instantly fell in love with it. Between 2002 and 2010 I had written almost 300 poems.Sadly in September of 2012 I lost almost all of those stories and poems in a fire.
I didn't let that stop me from getting back on my feet and writing again. I just recently finished my first novel. It has been sent to the betas and is in the editing stages. I am currently getting together a book of poetry as well.
I've seen my publishing dreams come true when 2 of my poems were included in Vol 1 of Authors Against Bullying. It is an honor to be involved in something like this. All proceeds from sales go to charity. I have a short story coming soon in Vol. 2.


 I have learned that writing is my way to get through. Without writing I am nothing. I hope that through my writing I can help others as well.
 I hope ya'll enjoyed my journey into writing. Until next time! Later days!!!!


  1. I can totally relate. I started writing when I was 13 as well. An amazingly vivid dream spawned a series of fanfiction. I'd since branched out into my own works and blogging. It's hard for me to express myself verbally sometimes so writing really helps me get across my thoughts.

    1. Writing is definitely my outlet for all I go through.
