Several years ago I decided that one day I would love to write my own book. It was a flaky, dreamy comment and at that moment it had no strength or commitment behind it. To try to add some umph to my decision I bought an Usbourne kids book titled ‘Write Your Own Story Book.’ This book, along with my dreamy idea has sat on the shelf for many years collecting dust…
Until years later, having shared snippets of my life’s stories with others many have said “you should write a book.” I have just shrugged each comment off, thinking most would say the same about their own life.
It was only many more years later after experiencing what I thought was now worth writing about, that when I heard the comment once again, it was asthough the universe were sending me a thunderbolt of word power that cleared my dusty shelf and awoke the hidden author in me!
152,000 words have flowed through me onto the computer and I am currently in the editing stage of trying to make sure it all makes sense before I dare to share.
I have heard so many people say “I would love to write a book but I can’t” They will never do so. Every author started with the same thought, then they became authors. Do not let fear stop you from achieving your dreams.
