I had dreamed of becoming a published author since I was in college. Writing was the one area that made me feel alive, and I took classes in creative writing, short story writing, and screenwriting. Early on I was discouraged by my teachers, who felt that my writing was not very good. This devastated me, and by the time I was twenty-five years old I had stopped writing altogether. If only I had had the inner strength to keep on writing. If only I had had someone in my life to tell me to keep on writing. But instead, I chose to believe them and gave up.
Five years ago I came online and realized very quickly that writing regularly was going to be a crucial part of my success. I could still hear the voices of those who had said my writing was not good enough. This time I chose to keep on writing anyway. I’m a new person, and no one can keep me from achieving my goals and dreams. It feel great.
Today I finished my fifth book. It’s about affiliate marketing and will be available in paperback by the end of this month. I appreciate being an author because of what happened when I was young, over half my life ago.
