Oh wow, this is my first blog ever! I write fairly regularly on my deviantArt journal and had been sort of using that as a blog for a few years now. But, I've finally made the leap into the real blogging world *yay for me.*
Why make this leap, you might ask? I wanted to do this because I want to talk about writing my book. I am not a published author by any stretch of the imagination...Wait, I take that back. If you consider Archaeology reports as publications, then I do have a few of those floating around out there. But, thanks to fanfiction, I do believe I can write fiction.
You see, I have been a fanfiction writer for a few years now, since 2007. That has been an up and down journey of galactic proportions, but with over 1,000 reviews in 60 chapters, the main and most important thing I got out of the experience is this:
I believe I can write a book.
I believe I can write something publishable. I want to write something publishable. Of course, that is what every aspiring writer wants. The question is:
Can I achieve this goal?
I honestly have no idea if I can. But, I have two positives on my side: I believe I can and I want to try. Perhaps if I believe in it enough and want it enough and try hard enough, I'll get there.
This may be a long journey, but the journey can sometimes be considered the destination:)
