What inspired you to start writing?
I’ve always had a creative streak. Whether it be pencil drawing, painting, or crafting stories, I can’t recall a time when I wasn’t creating something. It’s one of the things that drives me and makes me feel alive. Being an English teacher and reading all kinds of fiction has helped me to connect with writing even more. Now when a story idea comes to me, I jot it down in the notes on my phone and can’t wait to delve into it, making it come to life. I’ve learned to face my fears about the writing process. It can be really daunting having thoughts about whether or not I can finish the piece and make it as good as it can be. The whole process is rather exciting.
