Writing for me began in elementary school. English teachers would make us write short stories all the time. We were encouraged by our teachers to be creative in writing and drawing pictures. Fortunately for me, I have always had a vivid imagination. Which made writing stories easy for me to do.
Life caused me to drift away from writing. Most of my writing, was a result of school requirements instead of for my enjoyment. I have always thought about telling my story. The opportunity came over 3 years ago during my period of unemployment. I had time to sit down and focus on the goals I set for myself years ago.
Overtime, I determined the direction of the book. I wanted the book to be more than just a story about what I did. I decided that I needed to build up the main character so that I could create a series. Kids enjoy adventures and having the main character go on one in each book would keep my readers intrigued. Also, I wanted the books to teach the young reader a lesson and promote Christian values.
Also, this will be my last week of regular blog posts. I've registered to attend an international and free online class, How Writers Write Poetry. It'll take most of my focus, along with this poetry project, so I'll only best posting content once a week. And every Wednesday until further notice. As in the past, the first Wednesday of every month is Insecure Writers Support Group day.
