I really enjoy the Reading Challenge on GoodReads. This year I focused on all black authors for once in my life. It was a challenge from a friend. One I didn’t regret accepting. I must admit it wasn’t always easy because some self published books had many mistakes which brought me to the realization that my people need help. We (black people) I mean have always been projectile in helpers mode. And sometimes we are too proud to ask for help.
I am now officially a self-published author and I can believe it!😁❤ I started so many stories that I never finished but eventually I would get immersed with one particular project that I couldn’t stop writing.
If you do the same, start stories but don’t finish, keep going! Try new stories and plots. One day, it’ll just work. You can do it!!
Writing is easy: All you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead.-Gene Fowler
I don’t find it very easy most of the time but I have a burning desire to share my unique experiences and original voice. To let my creative imagination turn into words. To make others imagine the picture I am.
Reasons Why I Read and Write
With preservation my descendant will be able to see who I was and how my brain operated.
● Basically I am flushing out whatever mess my mind comes up with because I don’t watch TV but I’m constantly dreaming of stories. Stories that if I never got to fully let out would create a tangled web in my brain. Last but not least. Reading and writing satisfy me.
● Helping my children develop their imagination and creativity through reading and writing is an important part of their development. Not to mention a fun way for us to bond.
