My Writing Journey
And how Emily Explores the ABC's of Salvation came to be...
My love of the printed word started with a bag of potato chips, soda and a book. We sat at the kitchen table on Friday nights, mom reading picture books ( a lot of little Golden Books ) to my brother and me.
In elementary school, I was allowed to check out books at my school library. The first time that I walked into our library I was awed and overwhelmed with the beauty of the space: wooden floors, bayed windows, and best of all, towering shelves of books. I felt like "Belle" in Beauty and the Beast when she was shown the Beast's library. ( I knew the Beast had her then. ) After some time, I started to experiment, writing stories of my own.
I found that writing was hard work. That wasn't a bad thing but a reality check. My desire to write was still there, but at this point, I didn't think that I had anything important to share.
