BHS- Where you want to go, if you love to write!
Writing my own book was far from easy. It was exhausting, emotionally straining and very challenging. However, I would have never changed the experience. An unexplainable feeling comes from typing that last word of the book. Finally finishing the story of the characters that have lived in my mind for months. Finishing off that happy ending that I always hoped for. In a way, a writer lives through their books and writing. This story will always be a part of me. I am so proud of my work and how far I have come this year. The countless hours spent writing finally paid off. All the stress, writer’s block and hardships were worth it. Receiving the paper copy of my book, yes the book that I wrote, was such a special moment. Holding a story in my hands that was just a figure of my imagination a couple of months ago left me speechless. I learnt that I didn’t care what other people thought of my writing… after all I never wrote the book for them. The book was written for myself, so I could say I did such an amazing thing that never in a million years I could have ever guessed would happen. What was even more great about this experience is that my friends supported me through the whole way. They were there when I couldn’t think of something new or when I didn’t think I’d ever finish the book. They were inspirations to my characters and without them the story wouldn’t be what it is. A book is a very personal thing to share, for me it’s kind of like a diary. Sometimes you have to face your fears and share that diary for other people, and that was the publishing process for me. The book was a learning experience for me, and I could not be more thankful for having this opportunity.
