When and why I decided to write stories
Welcome back guys, hope you’re having a wonderful day. I said in my last blog that I was going to talk about my favourite movies and actors, and I will a little later on in this blog.
I’ve been asked recently, in light of my upcoming book, when, how and why I decided to write stories now. Let’s start with the “when” I decided to write stories. I began to write stories when I was a teen. I was and still am an introvert. I like spending time alone, this is when I am most creative. Not having many friends growing up, I spent my time watching movies, television and writing. The stuff I wrote then were short stories, plays and I even wrote a movie script and dialogue that I wanted to shoot with my father’s Bell and Howell video camera.
My first complete story happened two years ago, and this is my upcoming book, “Stolen Heart.” This brings me to the “why.” Well, before this book, I kept thinking, “I didn’t have time, or I was too busy.” The real reason was I didn’t make time, I was afraid I wouldn’t have enough to say, and I thought, who’s going to read my stories anyway. What changed my mind?
When I started putting words and thoughts on a page, I saw the beginning of a story as I wrote more words. After four months, I had written the first draft of my first book. Now I am writing my second story. I love telling stories, and if my stories make one person feel good, that will make me happy.
As I mentioned at the beginning, my favourite movies are, The Harry Potter series, Matrix and I love musicals. The latest musical I watched was Prom with Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman. I loved it. As far as actors/actresses, Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Anne Hataway and Julia Roberts, for the actors Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Tom Hanks and Hugh Jackman. These are just a few of my favourites. Thanks again for reading my blog. Stay tuned for more.
