It's All Star Month here on Buzznet and we're going to talk about the things we love!
For my first post, I will talk about words/writings. I have been writing for as long as I could remember and I enjoyed it a lot. I love the feeling that I can escape into another world which I created and stay there for quite some time.
The first story I wrote was a continuation of my favourite TV series, The Journey to the West. I didn't want the story to end. I added a character in, which is myself, and I went on an adventure with other characters in the story. It's a mixture of fantasy, adventure, friendship and romance and I really enjoyed the process of writing it. The twists and turns gave the story a different direction.
I wrote my second story at 11. It revolves around seven girls who are really close friends and their lives. I wrote about their school life and school trips which I never had the chance to participate. I wasn't allowed to join school trips because my parents were being over-protective so I could only imagine and channel it in my story. It was one of the happiest memories I have in my life.
At the age of 12 I co-wrote a story with my childhood friend Rachel and we created a story-writing trend in class. The setting was based on Harry Potter (film series), which was a blockbuster back then. All characters were substituted with people whom we both know in real life- our teachers and peers. Most of the plot was written based on what happened in class so it was the most relatable story I had ever written. We added new characters throughout the story as both of us went to secondary school. I stopped writing abruptly because my mum noticed that I kept bringing home the books (the one we wrote) and she wasn't too happy about it. She said that I'll be too involved in it and I might ended up getting lost in a fantasy land. I had to call it quit before I could write the ending.
I stopped writing when I was 13 and had never writen anything until I was 20. I lost my gift but I'm slowly picking it up now. Writing blogs was a good start to it but I don't think I'll write stories anymore. Somehow I felt like I've lost it from the day I gave in and gave up. I'll stick to writing blogs and commenting on my friends' posts at the moment. I'm rather content about it so don't worry guys :]
At the moment I'd prefer writing about what's going on in my life and sharing my perspectives. Somehow through writing I can convey my thoughts more accurately. It somehow makes my thinking process go a little bit faster and I wouldn't have to strain too much in writing my thoughts. I'm not the kind of person who's good at expressing herself verbally so words help me channel my thoughts and feelings in a more organised way. When asked about opinions or expressing myself though art I'd prefer writing over other forms of art. I think Buzznet's a wonderful place for me to express myself without being worried about being misunderstood. I love how we agree to disagree on certain things.
I believe in the power of words. I think they can either make or break you. I think that anyone who believe in this would be really aware of what and how they phrase things. I'm still looking for the balance of how I can phrase things in a more constructive manner but still retain the meaning I'd like to express. It's not easy but I'm trying my best.
I don't think I'd give up writing anymore. I really don't see how I can live without writing/sharing my thoughts in words. It was a huge part of my life, until I chose to give it up. Right now I hope to pick up the pieces of my talent which I left behind ten years ago.
