For my next blah; I am an aspiring writer. I have always loved writing, and it's just been a part of my life. I wrote at the age of five... and have never looked back. I do want to be a school teacher (it's what I'm going to school for) but I also want to write a novel. Getting my story published & loved by others is a dream come true for me. I've always wanted to do it, but gave up that dream; until recently. With a tragedy happening in my family for the last two years.. it has showed me that we need to follow those dreams of ours. You never know when your life could be over. However, every time I get an idea for a story I look to see if it's already been done, and it has. It's beyond frustrating. Then I got an amazing idea for a story and I have already written about six chapters. I was buying books for my kindle and saw on amazon a story that was almost identical to the one I was writing. And it was very popular. I don't want readers to think that I copied other authors. So how in the world are you supposed to get your work out there if the ideas have already been started? I guess that's no reason to write. I need to do it because I love it and feel that my story has potential. I admire a writer named Amanda Hocking - she has done the My Blood Approves series, Hollowland, and Tyrlle series. She is just starting, but she has a lot of talent. Her goal to get where she is today is what makes me admire her though. She didn't give up even when everyone put her stories down. I believe she is self-published, and it quite popular now. It gives me hope that one day I'll be in the position. I would love to write YA (young adult books) and children's stories. To have a children's book published in my classroom would be so amazing!! So I'm going to follow this dream.. and you'll all see my name later on in life :) What's the point of living this life if you don't do big things? The things you love?
Now..... the exciting news!!! FRIDAY MORNING 12:00 am it's Harry Potter time. I seriously cannot wait as you can tell in my Harry Potter blog I did last week. Ahh! Can't believe it's already here. Omg. Beyond stoked!! It's so funny seeing everyone dressed up. Pretty amusing if you ask me.
Another happy bit of news is that my older brother, sister-in-law, and nephew Jaxon are coming into town Thursday. I cannot wait to see them!! It's been so long. We're having a mini Thanksgiving on Friday :) Look how cute my two nephews are! I love this picture. I'm sad Isaac isn't coming (the older one) but I understand why... Anyways, I just love them to pieces and cannot wait!
Anyways I'm done blah blah blogging :) I hope everyone has a Happy Tuesday!!
