Defining moment during your youth when you realized you wanted to be a writer? 

Writing has always been something close to my heart. As I grew up, I realized that I loved the way I got to express my thoughts in the different essays I would write for my teachers. It was exhilarating when I found out I would be building my writing abilities and imagination in my papers. It has always been one of my biggest strengths as a student. It was after my cheerleading accident that I realized writing was my main coping mechanism. It was hard being a teenage girl with little to no friends during middle school. It plummeted my self-esteem, until I realized the online world was filled with new friends who knew what I was going through emotionally. I began writing my book at the age of twelve, putting my thoughts online and reading all the both positive and negative feedback that fueled me to write. I remember the endless nights of staying up until the early hours of the morning, forgetting what time it was because I was writing. I made so many friends that helped me through what I was dealing with; they all gave me a sense of hope that everything would be okay. Writing got me through the toughest time of my life. It still amazes me how one small thing could bring me happiness throughout the day. There is no defining moment that made me realize I had wanted to be a writer. There was no lightbulb moment; nothing that decided to hit me in the face randomly throughout the day. Being an author was driven by the imagination I seemed to hold throughout my life. It was the hard times that gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. I am beyond thankful of what my life has become too and how happy I am now compared to how I felt only a few years ago. This journey has brought out the author in me that was hiding all of these years.

  1. A good book, buy it on Amazon, I really liked. The author advises to try himself as a writer of essays. I once did, and wrote a short story, after which I was advised to write my essays about how I wrote and what feelings I have had. After all this, I continued to write essays, but for other students. Now it's my hobby. It helps to distract thoughts. I advise you to try this method, when you write the next book.

  2. I will buy it for sure. Pretty onteresting book I think. Two year ago I wanted to write a book too. But you know, it was too difficult for me. I even asked for help from these https://academicsavers.com/ guys, but I still realized that it would take too much time.
