Where do I fit in? What flowers do I pollinate? It’s a new adventure being a new author. The work involves continuous patience to be noted in the book world. First of all, I am a new bee and being amongst older bees that have experience gives me the opportunity to venture out in the fields of flowers.
At first before I found the honeycomb of publishing, it took me 10 years to believe I was a writer. I took a writing course with the Institute of Children’s Literature. I was a new bee as a beginner learning the trade of creative writing. It was not an easy process as each assignment became more difficult. I wanted to quit so many times but within me something was pushing me to move forward.
Now as a published author I feel like a beginner again. Connecting with other bees in the field came through social media. The networking is like a meeting in the honeycomb. To receive feedback from the others made me feel I belong in the book world.
Writing is my passion. The words flow so easily like honey when I’m in the creative zone. I am exploring new avenues of writing in the book world. One of my goals is to empower others to write from the heart. I want others to believe they have the potential to publish their work.
Learn to teach others. Teach to learn from others. Empower each other.
I learn to persevere in my heart’s dream. I teach others to follow their heart’s dream. In the end we empower each other. I may be a new bee but I am willing to work hard to be recognized by the Queen bee. I learn every day to be a better writer. When I am an older bee, I will be there to teach the new bee to explore in the unknown to enter the creative zone.
Passion is the sweetness of creative writing to fruition of publication.
