My 'About' used to say "One day I want to be a New York Times Bestselling Author" and that's still true. But I feel differently about why I write now, ever since I started writing fan fiction and experiencing that connection with others, with the readers!
I read a post on Tumblr where a girl explained how her favourite characters on a movie (and the fan fiction she reads about them) help her to escape her depression and anxiety, even if only temporarily. It makes her life better and gives her a 'safe place' to go.
I realized this is what I want to do with my writing, to create a written work that takes people away from their difficulties and gives them a safe place they can escape to, to feel the emotions they can't face in their real lives, to experience the emotional connections they don't have in their own relationships, between characters they grow to love and care about, connecting in a way they haven't been able to in the real world (something I'm always searching for in my own life).
Seeing all the Fan Art out there, of my own personal favourite movie character couple (Reylo) makes me realize even more how every person has a voice to express themselves, whether by drawing, painting, music, dance, sculpture, poetry or fiction stories, to inspire others, either by their own creations or by enjoying the creations of others and thereby encouraging the artists/writers to keep going.
I hope you enjoy my written creations here :) Welcome to my Wattpad site!
