Weekly Writing Challenge: Writerly Reflections

Writing Challenge: Writerly Reflections
by Krista on March 24, 2014

I have always loved to read and to make-up stories in my head. Some I wrote down, some I did not. At first, I wrote my stories in a little diary, but soon blossomed out to notebooks; boxes upon boxes of notebooks. I was probably around the age of eight or nine. I wrote a lot of stories about animals.

Books, to me, were, and still are, a great escape. I still love nothing better than getting lost in a good book. Writing became my second nature. It didn’t matter if I was writing a letter to God, a story about animals, or just spewing whatever I was feeling at the moment down on paper. My writings were very personal to me and I shared my stories only with a few.

It wasn’t until my tenth grade English and creative writing teacher gave me enough confidence in my writing, that I was ready to share with the world. It was, also, around that time that I fell in love with poetry. I love reading poetry, and tried my hand, a few times, at writing poetry. Poetry just wasn’t in the cards for me.

I enjoy writing fiction the best; Young Adult, Fantasy, Children’s Books. I hope to try a Baby Boomer novel, and a Historical Fantasy, soon. I, also, have been working on my memoir.

I write mostly for myself, because I have the stories in me and want to let them out. Of course, I would love to be published, but as long as I can write, I’m happy.

It is hard for me to keep to a daily writing practice, because of life and the twists and turns that come along with it. I do try to write something everyday, but as far as mapping out: I’m going to write this, this, and this today, forget it. Very seldom does that work for me.
