Busy…Busy…Busy/ How I became a writer! : )

In one of my many psych text books it talks about what human beings complain about not having enough of the most. Time.
I did agree, but when I first read it and answered the question correctly on the test, it didn’t really apply to me. I had plenty of time then. I wasn’t working, I wasn’t focused on anything but school. School was all I had. I had plenty of time to do my homework, and I even had enough time to play around with my music.
But now, well now I am busy, busy, busy. That is even an understatement. I have become one of the many human beings that complain about not having enough time! And….well…I think…I think I like it. no strike that I totally love it.
Being super busy is thee best thing ever, especially since I’m busy because I found something new that I am passionate about.
I read my first romance novel in 2012 and much like the hero and heroines do in the stories, I fell hard. I fell in love. I had no idea this Romantic world existed outside of movies. I was a movie buff. A serious movie buff, still am, well kinda. The truth is, I haven’t really watched movies in a long time because after I read my first romance novel I developed an insatiable hunger for more. I have read literally a thousand romance novels in just one year! My sisters used to get so mad because they would come down to my college student basement room and see me completely engrossed in the world of the newest novel I was reading.
It all started with a dare I gave myself. This is a little embarrassing, but I’m going to tell it anyway. I dared me to read the book that set many mommies ablaze. The book that all the older women were saying was so incredibly crazy and..sexy. Yes, I’m talking about that one, the mommy porn, 50 Shades of Grey. I know, I know, you’re probably wondering why. Why would I read mommy porn when I’m not a mommy! But it was curiosity! I mean, everyone was talking about it on T.V. and… I don’t know, but after I fell madly in lust with Christian Grey I knew I needed to get him out of my system. I mean seriously, it hurt…I can’t explain it, but I hated being as caught up in that trilogy as I was. So I decided to read more romance novels. The next novel had me in the same predicament. The incredibly talented Sylvia Day made me fall madly in love with Gideon Cross. It hurt. Then there was Kellan from Thoughtless, Effortless, and Reckless. Gabriel’s Inferno, and so much more until I came across the Romance genre world that made me spend literally hours in my kindle library. Interracial Romance.
Yes, Interracial Romance stories are my absolute favorite! My first interracial novel was Trolling Nights by Savannah J. Frierson. I mean WOW! She quickly became one of my favorite authors. As soon as I was finished reading Trolling nights I read Being plumville, Reconstructing Jada, seriously I was obsessed. She lead me to other interracial authors such as Lena Matthews, Zena Wynn, Tale of three Hearts author Sienna Mynx (Serious Emotional Rollercoaster but you gotta love that Aiden!). But though I discovered this whole new world and became lost in it. I didn’t think that I was capable of ever being one of the people that write these novels, or write a novel at all. I kept asking myself. Do you think you can do this? And every time the answer was no. I thought that maybe I would start writing one and then stop, leaving it there as failed attempt at trying something new. But then summer 2013 rolled around. School was out and I didn’t really have to substitute at the Children’s learning center I work at. All I had was time. But I needed to remind myself why I thought I might be able to do it.
I have been creating characters in my head since I was a little girl. I create parts for myself on my favorite shows and I dream up better directions for story lines to take. I knew I could tell a story I just didn’t know if I had the patience, drive, or ability to write a novel. But I sat in front of my computer and tried it anyway.
Lets just say, I’ve never made a better decision in my life! I love writing! I love telling a story! I love, love, love the creativity and the time, the hard work that it takes to tell a love story that has characters the reader can fall in love with. I love everything about writing, and now…I can’t stop. My head is flooded with ideas for new books to write. I have written Part one of my first novel and it will be published by Dewy Moss LLP! I have never been more excited and nervous in my whole life. Writing has quickly become something I can’t get enough of.
I have new dreams and a new passion all because I dared myself to read “Mommy porn”.
LOL. Well that’s my story, as unconventional as it is, it’s mine.
