My writing experience

Hello everyone, hope you are doing well. Thanks for passing by. I wrote my first short story at 8, my first lyrics at 15 and my first novel at 18. I’ve improved since that first novel that is still sitting in a folder, and I may go back one day and rewrite it, but I plan to always keep the original as a reminder of how I’ve grown, improved and polished my craft as a writer. As we age , change situations, and relationships we learn and expand to properly keep nourishing all aspects of our existence.

Writing and art in general is an extension of our souls and emotions. It can help heal wounds of all kinds. No one reaches perfection in any aspect of life and writing is no exception. Styles change, perceptions, views, and emotions. You might write one poem or story one day and six months later you likely couldn’t capture that exact emotion again that first inspired it. That is the glory of human expression, we have so much depth and potential in each of us that we can turn the ordinary into extraordinary. My writing experiences have been growing pains, especially spiritual and emotional. Challenges come to us all to help us expand our horizons and finding the right set of words to help place the reader in the shoes of the characters is a challenge, but also a satisfying moment to know the words on a page you or I create can possibly help or inspire someone we don’t even know.

So no matter the skill you are chasing to improve, the obstacles are just stepping stones to better polishing the talent you possess. Never give up on the things you enjoy doing.
