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!!!!
