Though I am about, hmmmm…seven days late I am here to write my declaration. I am a writer. Yes, I am a writer. I am not just a writer though; I am quite the writer. I am a writer of poetry, stories (short or long alike), blogs, articles, journals, diaries, papers, and so much more.
What makes me quite the writer though is my ability to draw a picture with words. I have the ability to tangle and weave my words in such a way that you, as my audience, has no choice but to clearly understand me and my words. I do this because for most or rather all of my life I have felt as though no one understands me. When I vocalize my thoughts or try to explain myself I leave behind quite a few confused expressions.
So at a young age I picked up a pen and I began to write. I can still remember clearly when I discovered I had the ability to not only captivate my audience, but was able to get them to clearly understand me through my written word. I was a young girl, in the second grade to be exact, and I was given the assignment to create a short story. At this time I also discovered that I have a fascination with twins, but not just twins in general, but identical twins (so much so my childhood sweetheart and first child’s father is an identical twin).
I essentially created a story, that turned into a series of stories, about two twins; Dally and Pally, and their hysterical day at a haunted house. As part of the assignment we had to read the stories to the class, though I was nervous as any person could ever be, especially in the second grade, I was more than anxious to share my masterpiece with my class. Soon all that could be heard besides my apparently, extremely funny words was a classroom full of laughter (including the teacher’s). That day I felt so much accomplishment and pride in what I had created, but not only that I realized then that I was a and still am quite the writer.
Below, my fellow readers, you will find a link to the 15 days of writing I am currently engaged in. Interested in learning more or participating click below. As you can see from my rather tardy post, it’s never too late to start! =)
