A tribute to my mom

I'm going to start off this post with the sentence. I LOVE MY MOM. After my heavenly father, God, my mom is the main reason I'm where I am today. Being the last of four kids, one would expect a mother to spoil her child with gifts of the world, but my mom didn't. She gave me a little and showed me how to get the rest. Isn't she an angel?

When I went off the right trail, she brought me back again. She's always believed in me and till date she believes in my writing. I know the cliche stigma about how children love their mothers, but mine is quite different. I have seen so many families and how kids' mothers treat them. It's really appalling. Some mothers spend all their money in buying jewelries to beautify themselves, but my mom prefers to go naked just to make her children comfortable. To her, our happiness/success is all she needs in life.

Even when my dad didn't agree with certain decisions we made, my mom would try her best to back us up both financially and psychologically. then when my father sees our decisions are fruitful, he would join my mom to support us. He's awesome as well.

Even in death, nothing would separate me from my mom. She lives within me wherever I go and whatever I do. Tear drops trickle down my cheeks as i reminisce about all she has done for me. My only hope is that she lives to reap the fruits of her labor. (By God's grace)

Lastly, I'll end this post by adding a very special quote by me. "Unlike most celebrations: Christmas, Birthdays etc., I celebrate Mother's day everyday of my life because without my mom, I wouldn't be me"

Why I Started Writing

Hiya everyone,

On a sunny afternoon, I was discussing about my book with a collegeue at work. She asked a question that drove me down memory lane. "What made you become a professional writer?" she asked.
After elaborating the enitre story behind my writing, she smiled and nodded. "I hope your dreams come through," she said. Now, what did I tell her that made her give such a response? This is what this post is all about.

Firstly, I've been writing for a while now. Though they weren't full stories or plots, I just loved expressing myself with a paper and pen; nowadays with Microsoft Word. So during September 2009, I was watching a fan video on youtube on the two twiligjht stars, together called 'Robsten' and a mind blowing idea hit me. "Why don't I write a different kind of paranormal romance?" I said to myself. At that moment, I had deep feelings towards a friend and former high school mate. I channeled my entire energy in writing a book which would be dedicated to her.

First trial
One morning I called a friend who then informed me about the girl I liked and they guy she'd started dating. it felt like a stake had been pierced through my heart. I could hardly breath for a long minute. Instantly, I switched on my laptop and deleted the book I'd started writing (I was already half way throught the book) Then I went to my university account and deleted the back-up copy from a college's PC. I was really devistated. During the next few days, I was a mess. My life had taken a complete U-turn. I could barely eat or even attend lectures.

Second trial
Still depressed, I went over to my elder sister's crib hoping to cheer up. When i told her about my passion in writing and that I'd like to be a full time writer, the respond my sister gave me was heart breaking. "What makes you feel you'll be any better than the millions of people who write?"
This was a wake up call for me, and I left her place more determined than ever. I finsished my novel in less than two months and began editing. However, it took a great deal to forget about the girl I'd lost. I guess what won't kill you can only make you stronger.

Now, I'm at the verge of releasing the sequel of that book(LS: The Beginning) and also a new project I've been working on as well. My sincere hope is that one day, my books will be read and my voice would be heard.
