writing notes

I have always had a passion for writing.  As a child I loved telling stories to my friends and writing scripts for plays that my friends would act out at recess.  It was not until my early thirties that I felt that my dreams could become a reality.  I didn’t know any professional writers and none of my friends or family shared my passion.  Without any role models, I felt that becoming a writer was just a dream and would never become a reality.  I didn’t know what to do other than scribble away in my notebooks and share my writing very few people.  My lack of knowledge about the publishing world and becoming a published writer did not stop me from writing, but I longed to see my words in the hands of other people.  I wanted to share with the world what makes me so happy.
