I’ve had this little project tucked in its folder for the last month. Today, I pulled it out again—reading through it all and making notes. Being a freelance journalist is my dream and goal, but since I was little, I’ve always wanted to write a novel. Who says I can’t be a writer of both non-fiction and fiction?
I worked on this story for my last semester of college, it was supposed to be a finished novella by the end of the semester; however, it took so many twists and turns (and I am a way slower writer of fiction than I thought I was) the story changed so much. By the end, I only came out with about 20 good(ish) pages. Today I have determinded that I’m going to keep working on it.
I’m not sure what it’s going to be once it’s finished, maybe that novella, maybe a novel, maybe just a story the little kid I was growing up needed, but, no matter what it turns into, I’m going to show up and write it.

Never give up on your dream. I have written 2 non-fiction books that I have yet to publish and one book about being a dementia caregiver which was published on Amazon. I truly enjoyed my non-fiction novels and lost myself in the story of each one. Writing is so enjoyable even if it is only for your own eyes. Good luck.
That is wonderful you have written three books and published one of them! Thanks for your encouragemnt. 🙂
