Hello, people who are reading this, and welcome (back) to my blog.
I’ve always loved to read. Ever since I learned how to reading has been a big part of my day to day life. It got so bad during one period of my life that I’d take books with me to the bathroom, do my business and then just sit in there and read. My friend’s parents would ask them where I was and they’d just answer with “She’s reading on the toilet again.”It was bad and I lost a lot of my closest friends during that anti-social period. The ones that stayed are still really close to me today and they’ve learned to love me despite my reading habits (And I don’t hide in the bathroom to read anymore, I’ve learned from my mistakes.). But, my dream back then was to be able to read for a living (It’s still up there in my top 5 dream jobs.). It wasn’t until a few years later (This makes me sound like I’m ancient…) that I discovered a love for creating my own stories.
The thing about creating a story instead of reading it is that you can change anything that you don’t like about it. I’ve always created different worlds both in my head and on paper. Some might say it’s because I’d rather live in on of my many books than in the real world and they are completely right. Who wouldn’t want to live in a world full of magic? (I read a lot of fantasy….). If I ever got the opportunity to leave this world for another one I’d take it without any hesitation. I’d leave everything behind (Sorry, not sorry.) and never look back. But that’ll probably never happen so I’ll just have to make do with the next best thing, using my imagination and creating stories for other people to enjoy and escape within. That would be a dream come true, to actually be a published writer.
Until next time, xoxo Ella.
