"She was fascinated with words. To her, words were things of beauty, each like a magical powder or potion that could be combined with other words to create powerful spells."
Dean Koontz

It might sound funny; I sometimes forget how fascinating writing is to me. I can spend hours sitting on the desk with my computer and write anything. I am an organized person. I love to write my journals, my to-do lists, and any plans I have for the day. Writing has been a part of me that it helps me to express my feelings.

Not so long ago I did a personality test with a friend who's doing a research for her Master degree. Upon completing the test, she told me what my personality really is. She mentioned that I mostly use my right brain to think, that for me 2 x 2 doesn't always equal 4, clearly explains how things don't get on my way; everything is possible.

What interesting for me is, she mentioned I am an introvert; I express my feelings better in written than in spoken words. Very true, indeed. When I can't explain things (when I have a fight with my husband, for instance), I spend some time to think and write what I feel. I explain what happens, my point of view and other current feelings on a piece of letter. 

I don't give the letter directly, though. I normally stick it on the fridge at night and let him find the letter in the morning when I am not at home for work. Yes, I guess I don't want to be around him (nor anyone whom I write a letter to) when he reads it. It also gives him time to think of what I write, rather than having him judging it diretcly before he can really grasp what I mean to say.

This is why I currently have an in-depth discussion with my inner self to answer, "What do I really want to be in life?" 

I am a teacher and I like to teach. However, I sometimes feel that teaching is really not for me, that I am meant to do other things. I would love to work from home and spend my time writing and crafting. I want to be an editor, to deal with books, to read them while I make sure they are worth published. I want to be a writer, to inspire people with my words. I want to craft and share my creations with the world. 

I totally know that in order to make things happen I need to start working on them. I can't be a writer if I don't start to write. I can't share my creations if I don't even create and craft something. 

It is better to start a baby step once at a time than to run fast and stumble on the way to the end. From now on, I pledge to write, to create a completely new world with my words, because if I can write a few words a day, I will have a whole new book a year. Persistent and determination are the keys.
