"Nothing great happens overnight and to every success story there is always a point of failure and discouragement. That’s what makes the story a ‘success story’ because despite the odds, you pulled through."

After I was asked to write this post. I began to think of what I would write that would actually help other writers. I don’t want to bore you with big words and grammar that would not leave an impact.
So I decided to write on the journey of a writer. Yes being a writer is a journey and sadly or maybe not sadly there is no final destination but there are victory stops. I’ll explain, but first how do you even start this journey?
I’ll give a few bullet points.
Finally I’d like to tell you that you’re unique, everyone sees the world differently. Nobody can write the exact way that you can, believe me. I try my best not to confine myself by ‘qualifying’ my type of writing, at the end of the day whatever genre, it’s still writing and it is speaking to people. So don’t copy anybody, aspire to be a better version of yourself every day. Whilst looking up to people, don’t forget yourself. If the world hasn’t seen through your eyes yet, what are you waiting for?
I’ll stop here, I hope I was able to get through to someone. Thank you for reading.
