Why I Write
Welcome to my blog, I’m Shashu (Shay-shoe). It’s here that I can personally connect with each of you.
Who. What. Where. When. Why. As a little girl, I kept a diary. You know, the small ones with the cute little gold heart lock and key? I kept writing in my time through middle and high school into adulthood. For me, journaling was therapy; it was my safe place to get everything out of my head onto paper. [blockquote text=’In this digital age, I still love the way Pen feels on Paper; I still love Pen and Paper. ‘ text_color=” title_tag=” width=” line_height=’undefined’ background_color=” border_color=” show_quote_icon=’yes’ quote_icon_color=’#3ddb9c’ quote_icon_size=”] I love stationary and smoothly writing pens and stylish journals and planners! I seriously just got excited, thinking about new journals. I have a Psychology degree, and anyone who’s studied Psychology knows that writing and reading are key. You have to write ten plus page reports in every class, every semester; there’s no getting around it. The thing is, I never got tired of it, and I never got below an ‘A’ on any of my reports because I enjoyed writing.
Now let me say this, and it will not be the last time you hear this from me, I want to win the “Young Author” award AGAIN. When I was in elementary school, I won Young Authors! I remember it so clearly. I wrote a short story called, “My Grandmothers Garden.” She followed her grandmother down the row, picking up the small, heart-shaped fruit. I remember my teachers telling me I won due to my description skills. Back then, my grandma did have a garden, but she didn’t grow strawberries, she grew peppers, tomatoes, and collards and I had never even tasted a strawberry. The day I won, I knew I wanted to win again, I knew I would be a writer. There should be a Young Author award for kids and young adults up until 29; that’s just what I think.
I started writing my debut novel, Queen of Kings, a few years ago, but I let many things like fear and procrastination place my book on the back burner. I have so many goals for my book, with one being to see if finally published. Thank you for joining me on this journey to PUBLISHED!
