Writer.

Writer.

So, I was very much inspired by Rebel_Fangirl, as I always am, to make this. She wrote "Writer Girl" and I decided to basically tell you why I'm a writer. I'm not totally sure what'll be in this story, but yeah.

Chapter 1.

Why I think I'm a writer.

My name is Mack, as you all well know. I'm 13 years old, and I consider myself a writer.
Let me explain why in the world I think that.
First off, I would like to think I am somewhat creative. I feel like coming up with story ideas is something I enjoy doing, and I hope that I'm good at it.
I also feel like I can sorta use my words well, but I always have SOME typos. There's probably some in this. :|
Anyways...
I've always been told I can write. It's something I used as an outlet. When I was 6, I knew what it meant to be a writer. It meant sharing your thoughts and ideas with people, and to me, that was a big deal. No one ever listened to me. But now, 7 years later, people listen.
I make sure what I write is REAL. I put raw emotion into EVERY story I put out there, and I hope to GOD someone listens to me.
I first found out what having a book turned into a movie was. And the moment I knew, my heart decided that's what I wanted. From the moment I learned how to write my name, I was already talking to my grandma endlessly about my ideas. I couldn't really spell, but I would tell her what to write, and she did.
My dream is to become a professional author that has a book turned into a movie. Now, I spend my nights thinking about story ideas.
I feel like I'm the only one, but I pretend my life is a book. The words in my mind are the words you read on the paper. I am always desperately trying to get better and better and better.

My great-grandma was the first person to give my writing a chance. She told me it was good, but I could do better. Her word means the WORLD to me, so I started practicing.
I like to read, and that's where I get my inspiration from. I will read a 600 page book in a day and have a new story started 5 minutes after I've read the whole book. I swallow up every bit of writing information I can get.
It's not that I just want to "make it big." I want to change something, someone, somewhere. I want to die knowing I impacted a large majority of people. I want kids to have stayed up at night, my book clutched in their small fingers. I want to move teenagers to tears because I've related to them so well. I want adults to feel what i felt when writing my stories.
I told myself that I could do it. And a lot of the time, I don't really decide to write. My hands grasp my laptop, my fingers fly across the keyboard, and the story unfolds.
One day, I was having a particularly bad anxiety attack. I sat on the floor, body racking with sobs and my heart pounding against my chest.
I didn't know how to express my emotions except for one way: writing. I grabbed my laptop, opened up Microsoft Word, and wrote 3 pages just talking about anxiety. My mom sent the pages to her publisher and I THINK it's going into some magazine. I hope so. That'll mean people will read it, and I hope I have impacted them to some degree.

So, yeah, I think I'm a writer. I know some people don't like my stories, and that's okay. I LOVE what I do, and I know what my dream is. I'm going to accomplish it before I die, I promise this to you now. One day, you'll see my name as a best-selling author, and I can't wait for that day.

You have no idea what kind of effect you can have on people just through your writing.

This very story is just... I might cry. I can basically feel all of the emotion that you're pouring into it, and I just... Get it. I understand and relate to all or most of it. It's insane.

This. Is. Why. I. Write! I just want to know I've impacted someone, and I've said it a thousand and one times, but I will say it again: you're amazing. Outstanding. The best! I am glad to know I've had the same affect on you that you have had on me.

Lucky_Queen
Thanks. You're just as outstanding, probably more so. And yeah; the biggest and main thing that I want to do with my life is just make an impact on someone. To make someone's day or inspire them or help them through something tough. And the idea that I've actually made a positive impact on you is the best feeling in the world.

*hugs* I think I might cry. I don't know how to put my emotions into words, but I'm beyond joyous.
reply
Lucky_Queen
*hugs* Yeah, same here. I honestly don't even know how to say it. For the longest time, whether you knew it or not, you literally were the only reason that I was writing. I wanted to be as good as you, maybe better. I might've stopped writing entirely if it weren't for you. You were one of my biggest inspirations. And now it turns out that I've been inspiring See More▼

Eeeeeeeeeeh you always say the write thing! I probably wouldn't keep writing as much if you hadn't kept me going. You have no idea the effect you have on ME. Your words alone have made me feel better, not worthless. You've made me feel important, and I can never thank you enough. You've been a tremendous friend and supporter through my writing roller coasters, See More▼

Oh my gosh. You have no idea how much that means to me. And I'm glad that I've kept you writing, because you are destined to be one of the greatest writers of all time. You're even more awesome than I am. *hugs*
