Writing a book has been a life long dream of mine. I remember attempting to write books as a child, desiring to capture the ideal life any eight year old would dream to live, but would get frustrated when the story wouldn’t be as neatly narrated as my favourite chapter books. I would be further frustrated when the multi-coloured construction paper I chose for my book would tear or my hand would cramp from holding the crayon.
As years went on I never lost the desire to write a book but never really attempted it again. Writing a novel seemed too complicated and writing a book about my own experiences seemed out of the question as I felt my life was generally uninteresting and could never amount to a full book with chapters and all.
