My daughter already knows she wants to write stories, I did not entertain the possibility of this idea at her tender age of almost ten. Our parents came from era that you should acquire a sensible career it was a different world back then. My child says it confidently “I want to be a writer too, like you Mum.” She believes I am already a writer because in her world it is that simple, I am writing. I need to take the same beliefs and begin with those simple words I am a writer: maybe for you it is, I am an artist, actor or even a rock star. I encourage my children to keep diaries with all their ideas, I wish I had started one at ten, being blessed with a wild imagination the diary would be an interesting read now. This is a picture of a drawing my eldest showed me yesterday. A creature from one of her many stories he is a mix between a piranha, a devil and a lion (Predeville).
Be what they want to be.
Don’t let one more day pass you by, start now! Doing what you always dreamed of doing. Share with me what you use to say with confidence “I want to be a writer when I grow up!”
What about you?
