# “My Wacky Journey Into the World of Storytelling: Confessions of a Coffee-Addicted, Mom-Approved
Hey, there fellow bookworms! As a self-proclaimed passionate reader and a writer, I'd like to share with you my journey into the world of storytelling. But hold on, this won't be a boring recap of my achievements and titles (yawn!). Instead, let me take you on a wild ride through the ups and downs of my writing journey, complete with embarrassing titles, coffee addictions, and mom-induced happy endings.
It all started when I was a bored teenager during summer vacation. I mean, what else is there to do when all your friends are away, and the sun is melting your brain? That's right, pick up a pen and paper and start writing your own stories. And that's exactly what I did, armed with nothing but a head full of ideas and a thirst for adventure.
My first-ever novel was called "Friends' Reunion Turns Into Love," and to be honest, the title was cringe-worthy even back then. But hey, it was a start! The story was about two childhood friends, Cheryl and Karma, who had a falling out due to Cheryl's bullying. Fate brings them back together in high school, and they must face their past and try to reconcile. Looking back, I can see the flaws in the plot and character development, but I'm proud to say that it was the beginning of my love of storytelling.
Next up was a short story called "Mavis the Avifauna," inspired by fairy tales and the movie Snow White. It was about a bird-woman named Mavis who longed for freedom and the chance to see the outside world. The story was originally going to have a sad ending, but my mom convinced me to make it a happy one (moms always know best, right?). This story taught me the value of having a support system and listening to feedback, even if it's not what you originally had in mind.
My third work was an unexpected one called "The Mysterious House." It was a full-fledged novel that I never planned, but it just came to me. I even re-released it and it’s on hold for now. The story follows five 16-year-olds from orphanages who wake up in a strange building with endless stairs and a machine that tests their limits. They must work together to
find a way out and uncover the mystery behind their imprisonment. This story taught me the importance of letting go of control and letting the story take me where it wants to go.
My personal favourite work is my ongoing novel called "Hours of Darkness." It's set in a divided world where the privileged domains live in luxury while the sectors work hard for basic necessities. Children attend a school where they are trained to be selected for a better future, but the reality is a dystopia disguised as a utopia. The yearly selection of five teens from the sectors to join the domains is considered a golden opportunity, but none have ever returned to tell their tale. This story taught me the value of perseverance and never giving up on a story that you believe in.
Lastly, I released a new novel called "Eden of Rothania" just a month ago. It's a total fantasy novel that I've never tried writing before. The story follows a girl who hears mysterious voices in her dreams, leading her and her twin on a perilous journey to change the fate of their kingdom. This story taught me the value of taking risks and exploring new genres.
And there you have it, dear readers! A glimpse into my wild and wacky world of storytelling, filled with embarrassing titles, mom-approved happy endings, and lots and lots of coffee. Writing may not always be easy, but it's always worth it. Who knows, maybe one day I'll even come up with a less embarrassing title.
But wait, there's more! I've got a new novel in the works, titled "A World Unwritten." It's a tale of adventure, mystery, and a sprinkle of romance (or maybe a truckload, who knows?). Unfortunately, I can't spill all the juicy details just yet, but I promise it's gonna be a wild ride. So make sure to stay tuned and keep an eye out for more updates on my blog.
And hey, if you haven't already checked out my other works, what are you waiting for? Go on, give them a read, and let me know what you think. Until next time, happy reading!
