DAY 14 CATCH-UP/ Who inspired me to write? #fantasywipjanuary 💕
To write, I’d have to say I have myself to thank for that. I don’t remember a pivotal moment where I decided I was going to be a writer, it almost feels like I was born to be one. As a kid, I loved words. My favourite thing was completing every page in the Find-A-Word books I had. In every “Spelling Bee” test, I never made a mistake. My parents often ask me how to spell words. I’m not as well versed as I used to be, but I am building that skill back up. The first story I remember writing was in a notebook, inspired by one scene in X-Men 3 with the mutant who has spikes like a hedgehog and he kills that lady by holding her when they come out. Well, I wrote a teen love story with a boy named Hedge and a girl named Olivia. “Liv” for short because she couldn’t die. I can’t say if it was the first I wrote, but the first I finished was named SOLDIER, inspired by Final Fantasy VII. 💕
Movies, games and books have inspired me. Have pushed me further. But I can’t forget the support I have!
My family who gives me space when I’m in the zone, who allows me days off work so I can meet deadlines, who encourage me to keep going, who brag about their daughter, niece, grandkid, sister for chasing her dream.
My friends who ask how it’s all going. Who understand that I’m still thinking of them even with my head stuck in my books. Who take me out so I can breathe whenever I need to.
And a writing tribe who never ceases to make me feel welcome. I was a lone writer for so long, too long perhaps, and I’m so grateful to have you all in my life now! I couldn’t imagine it with you all ✨
Last night I was feeling a bit off about my pixie friend that I posted. I decided to take her down and spend some more time working on her, and while there’s still more details that need to be added I think we both feel much better. #wip#progresspeak 🎨💖 (this could change though and she might flutter away again! Argh!)
