Right away I got an idea. When my teacher gave me my paper, I started to write like crazy. My story was about finding a shamrock. When I was finished with it, I was so proud of what I had created. (That is my shamrock story in the pic on the left.) I turned it in and when I got it back, I could see that my teacher had really liked it because she gave me a really good grade.
Ever since then I have loved to write. Nothing thrills me more than coming up with the perfect story and then seeing it come to life as I write it. When I get really inspired, the words just flow out of me, and when I go back and reread it I can hardly believe they came out of my brain. There is no feeling quite like the pride I feel when I finish a story and I have brought it to a great end.
For me, there is nothing more special and personal then my writing. That is why I am so shy about sharing it with people. But I'm so glad I created this site to do just that. Writing brings me comfort when I am upset. I can just get lost in my storyline and my characters and just forget my troubles. It can be frusterating sometimes when I get blocked, but I always get inspired again! I have notebooks and notebooks full of my stories and they are all precious to me. I have even been writing a novel and my ultimate dream is to have it published one day. I would love to see a book I wrote on a store shelf! It would be so cool! But whether or not that happens, I will never lose my passion for writing. And if by sharing it on this site I can inspire even one person than I will consider myself a huge success!
