“Whaatttttt?” you may ask.
My thoughts exactly. Well, it is coming true. After 4 years of going back and forth on writing and stop writing, I am FINALLY on the road to getting it done.
It hasn’t always been my dream to be a published author. In fact, it was the last thing I ever thought I would being doing. I was very much into fashion and designing. I enjoyed looking a beautiful clothing, and creating my own outfits in my head. I went to school for fashion design.
I then pursued a BA in fashion marketing and management. So to be throwing all that to the wind and saying “Hey let’s write a book”, it is a foreign idea for me as well. So what the hell, I just go…others may have started that way too, who knows…
The inspiration hit when I took two years off to focus on myself and recover from family tragedies. I spent most of those two years with journals by my side. I filled nearly 14 journals by the end.
About a little bit later, I enrolled in a writing class at my college. It was a prerequisite, and didn’t think much about it. The professor turned out to be a publish author and was working on his next piece of literature. I enjoyed the class, and actually looked forward to the projects that were assigned.
