Looking Back

I suppose I  am a born novelist, for the things that I imagine are more vital and vivid to me than the things I remember.–Ellen Glasgow

2010 was an interesting year for me; it showed me what exactly it is that I needed to do and what path I needed to take…

Ever since I was young, my elementary teachers (my 5th grade teacher most of all) would always tell my parents that they should encourage me to continue on writing. I will admit, I did write interesting stories, but that’s because I really didn’t think my life was as exciting as the ones my classmates had.

Well, or so I thought.

Yeah, I was rather odd–I still am, but when I was young I was an introvert, and I preferred a good book  that would take me to far off lands or sit down and write on my journals and watch my stories unfold…

Of course I come from an artistic background so everyone was into music and arts, which till this days most of my relatives are, but not me… In fact, I wanted to be noncreative. I really don’t know why that was… but in the end, after taking the long path and not enjoying it, I came back to where I was once.

I came back to my writing.

So in a way, my New Year’s Resolution might consist of many goals, but the one thing I want to focus on the most is my writing.

Sure I’m not introvert anymore. In fact, I’m not who I was, but who I am now is what will help me on this path I have finally decided to take on. The one path I was avoiding for a few years now actually…

I have so much to learn, but that’s okay since I’m actually willing.

So 2011, I guess I’ve been waiting for you the most.

Wish you all a Happy New Year!
