Words are magic!
I learnt that as a child. I loved how books would take me to different worlds without me having to move from my place. I have traveled to faraway places & sometimes magical places , from Afghanistan ( The Kite Runner ) to the Forbidden Forest (Harry Potter Series) all because of the beautiful words written by some amazing authors.
Writers I feel sometimes are like Wizards without the Pointy hats! They swish their writing wands & off we go somewhere! I knew I wanted to be one of them.
I have the soul of a writer, I realized that a long time ago.
It was my love of reading that made me want to write. I have so many stories within me that I just have a need to share! At first it started with Travel Writing, first in my Journal & more recently with my Travel Blog! Check it out here.
However that seemed restrictive! There was so much more to write about!
With that intention I started this Personal Blog. A place for me to share the world’s within me with you.
Why I write you ask ?
The best way to describe it is in the words of Gloria Stinem, She says “Writing is the only thing, that when I do it, I don’t feel I should be doing something else”.
It makes me feel alive. Like I could do this all day every day!
I just have so much to say! I do not know if my words are right in the literary way. They are just my observations, my emotions & feelings coming out on paper (or in this case Computer screen).
Sometimes I write with the hope that my writing will help somebody in a some way. Bring a smile to their face. Or as is the case with some travel posts of mine, bring back happy memories.( I love when my readers share their memories & experiences with me! )
You know what makes me really happy when it comes to my Travel Blog?
I have had so many people write to me, how because of personal reasons, they are unable to travel. They say they travel with me through my blog post everywhere I go.
It makes me feel happy to take people to faraway places through my writings. ( Be a wizard without the pointy hat myself!!! Yaayyy!! )
Have them experience joy for the time they read my post.
I write for the Joy of it & Hopefully to bring Joy to others!
I write because that’s what I really want to do.
I write because its my happy place!
I write to connect!
