As many WordPress users have a passion for creative writing, I am sure there will be a lot of you who will understand what I am about to say.
Writing has become a more important part of my life. I have been writing very long letters to friends and family since I was a child. My correspondence is the backbone of my writing.
I quickly fell into the habit of writing twenty page essays throughout high school. Whenever it was needed, I would write comprehensive reports at work, often volunteered for the task by my supervisors, who knew it was effortless for me.
Just over two years ago I ended up here on WordPress, initially posting about my own personal life. But I was reading the flash fiction, stories and poems from other WordPress users and I learnt so much. Gradually I started to play around with fiction and have a try myself.
Three books later…I have found that writing fiction is part of every day. I still write very long emails to friends and family all over the world. But, I also need to spend my fifteen minutes before bedtime stretching my imagination and developing a character that has popped up into my head.
It’s a funny thing how creative writing can become something you look forward to everyday.
