    Ever since I was about 9 years old, I have been aspiring to be a novelist. It's been ten years and while I have yet to finish even one story, I can't give up. It's funny how I've changed over the years. I started out with horror then I considered mystery and tried suspense. For...

    Short Stories of Adventure.

    I love writing short stories. Sharing adventures that are dear to me.  It's the taking the reader for a ride. If just for a moment. That in itself is a thrill.

    In elementary school I won a trophy for my writing. The school hanged my paper for everyone to see which made me proud. Unfortunately , the future wasn't bright enough for me to pursue my dream. Maybe I will one day, it's never to late.

    I love writing! It's one thing I'm really,

    really good at! It's so fun and I live being creative. When I write I visualise what it will look like, I start being a director also. I use Celtx and I occasionally write down what shot will work here and what will work there etc. I would encourage everyone to give it go!
