Writing a Book

Since grade seven I've been working on writing a memoir.  I must admit, when I first started it I might have really enjoyed writing but I was definitely not the best.  Well, at least when I look back at what I had written I realize how much differently I think now.  So, I've rewritten most of it and have currently been working really hard to get it done.  I have so many stories to share; it's not easy, but I think writing it all is helpful to me.  I also hope that it will end up being helpful for others.  I want to share my experiences so that I can inspire others to keep going, to reach for their dreams, and to change the world.

So far, I think that I'm really enjoying what I've written.  On that note, I thought I would share a little bit with you.  It's short, but I didn't want to share too much - you will just have to read the book!!  I really hope that it will get published one day...

I am not sure what I’m feeling as I get out of bed to put my clothes on.  With an uneasy feeling in my stomach, I wonder if it’s possible to experience homesickness before actually leaving my home.  However, I’ve been telling myself that today would be the day that everything changes – the day that everything will get better.  Having become fed up with my life, I’ve felt the need to get away and do something even more meaningful.  Today I get to escape the darkness I’ve been living in and return to life in the beautiful sunshine.  I’m not referring to leaving the dampness of Vancouver to spend time in the heat of Africa; although that is true, I long to escape doctors, tests, hospitals, and memories.  I long to escape the past.
