Are you an aspiring author?
Have you always dreamed of writing your own book?
Do you believe that you have a story to share?
Books are my best friends. When I was a little girl, my favorite past time was reading. I remember spending a lot of time reading the book, Heidi by Johanna Spyri. It was my first storybook given to me by mom and it was my favorite.
When I grew older, I enjoyed Harry Potter and Twilight. While reading, I feel like that I am totally in another world and it was a great way to escape the pressures of my teenage years.
When life got more serious and I have problems, I still read books especially when I feel so down and sad. I was able to get through my first heartbreak by reading a lot. Some books that made a huge impact on me were, Purpose Driven Life, Rich Dad and Poor Dad, The Art of Emotions (which I got from St. Paul's and I don't remember the author) and surprisingly, The Confessions of a Shopaholic.
There has always been a perfect book for every stage of my life. Whether it is to teach a lesson, help me understand what's happening, to give hope and inspiration or even to simply entertain. I found comfort and happiness by reading. Books are indeed gifts to us by the authors.
And this is also what I also want to do -- SHARE THIS GIFT. This is reason why I have always wanted to write my own book.
And the good news? My first book will be available this year. I am co-authoring a book for moms along with Asia's Book Writing Coach, Sha Nacino and 40+ individuals from different walks of life and location. There's no title yet but will keep you posted. :)
It feels so surreal but this dream of writing of my own is slowly taking shape and that I am grateful. Just like what José Martí said, a man should ought to "Have a child, plant a tree or write a book" before he dies. :)
Anyway, if you are also dreaming of writing your own book, then I'd like to encourage you to pursue that dream. It may seem huge and a bit overwhelming but with the right guidance and support, you can definitely make that dream come true.
