I knew when I was in fourth grade that my biggest dream was to become an author. I wanted to write fantastical adventures of worlds I created, and to fall in love and befriend my own characters, and to cry when they cried and laugh when they laughed. I wanted to get lost so deep in my own stories that they almost felt like reality. I wanted to create worlds other people could live in, too, when they read my book
J.K. Rowling is a huge inspiration to me. Her writing and attention to detail is phenomenal and I can only hope to create a world that is so complex, imaginative, and original as her world of Harry Potter. There are so many places, connections, and characters that it’s like you’re following Harry through a real world and the history she created for it is so unbelievably believable. I’ve never read another book or series that has so much depth.
As of right now I am writing my first book that I plan to get published. No one in my family (except Ralph Waldo Emerson who I’m apparently distantly related to) has gone through the writing process so, honestly, I have no idea what I’m doing. I just know I like to write and create. With this blog, I hope to help other aspiring and young writers like me who need help in navigating the world of writing. I will be giving advice as I go along in my journey as well as things I do to help my writing, book reviews, short stories I’ve written, and general things I go through as a teenager that could help others. I hope at least one person can find my writing and advice useful.
