This is me about 7 years ago. I had just started to write again. Looking back now I see the great journey I started here. No I am not published yet but I have two books finished and one I am about to finish. I never thought I would come this far when I started writing again 7 years ago.
Where do I begin? That is the big question. I have been sitting at my computer for a while now, trying to figure this out. There are so many things I can say and want to say. I am just so excited to be writing again. I guess I will start at the beginning. I want to become a better writer and writing a blog can help me get there.
The more you write the better you get, and the more you let others read your work the more feedback you receive. I have to learn to take criticism, and then take what I have learned from it, and improve my writing. I wrote a book last year about my miscarriage and the birth of my daughter. My husband just read the book and had criticisms. After swallowing my pride, and realizing that he is right, I edited my book. I hope to have another version or edition to upload sometime this year.
I love writing! As I write more, I learn new things and better ways to say what I am thinking.
I was reading a blog that one of my friends wrote and I said to myself that I could do that. I followed her format and used the same website she used.
I have also read more. By reading some of the world’s best authors, I can become better. I started with one of the best and one of my favorites, Tolkien. It had been a long time since I read The Hobbit, but still a wonderful story. I have been looking through my bookshelf pulling out books I want to read. I hope I can find time for them all.
Now the only thing left to do is to keep myself accountable. I need to write and read daily. I am not saying I will post something every day but I should work on it every day. If you follow this blog, please keep me accountable. If you don’t see a post at least each week, please yell at me. I have these great ideas, but sometimes I lack on the follow through. Till next time when I will post something more interesting. I promise.
Update: I have been writing everyday for the past 7 years. Still not published but I hope you enjoy the stories that I have made and the posts. If you are interested in reading more, please check out my wattpad account.
