Happy Mother’s Day, Winged Wonders! I hope you all are having a wonderful. As I have previously mentioned, I am participating in the HARPS (Happy and Random Posts) contest hosted by Starling!

The challenge for this week was…
Now, I don’t know about you guys, but I have quite a few passions. But one of my main ones (And the one I’d most like to focus on this year) is writing.
Writing has been a part of my life for years. I don’t really remember a time without it. So, to explain my passion, I thought that it would be fun to give you the shortened history of my writing.
A Shortened History of Rose’s Love of Writing
I’ve always loved writing, but I think the real spark came early in elementary school. In one my classes, we would be prompted to make books. We would write them, illustrate them, then they would be bound together and sometimes read in front of the class. My early ones were what I still write now. Realistic fiction and fantasy.
I didn’t write that much outside of school, but I loved doing it in school, whenever I could. Though those little books aren’t exactly amazing, they were still a start.
A few years later, my friend and I decided to each write novels. We spent a lot of time in our notebooks, penning stories and sharing what we had written before school. Mine was never finished, but her’s was. They were very short, but we both had big writing dreams. Fast forward about another year.
I was walking along the playground when I came up with an epic novel idea. The first chapter replayed over and over in my head. I wrote it down as soon as I could. I soon continued with it and had big plans, but that novel had never left the rising action before I was done with it.
Fast forward to maybe a year later. I had another great idea. I worked on it on and off (along with many novels in their first pages and countless more that were just ideas) until I finished it. Yes, I had to rewrite 20 pages of it, and yes I wrote it all on paper, but yes, I had written a novel. That was last Summer.
My mind exploded with ideas about what would happen next in the series. Alas, it was too close to my heart to ever be turned into a real book.
My next novel was during NaNoWriMo, which I chronicled on this blog. That novel ended up being about 25,000 words, about a third of a “real novel.” I decided to put that one aside as well. It had been more of a test novel.
During Camp NaNo of this year, I planned another novel. This one, I felt was going to be a true novel. This idea was very close to my heart.
Fast forward to now. I am going to begin writing that novel soon and I’m very excited. I have no idea what the future holds for my writing, but I can’t wait to continue with my passion.
I hope that you enjoyed that little “Storytime”/brief history. To be honest, I’m super proud of that title. I’ll definitely be blogging more often as many of my after school activities are finished.
For the post I earned three points. Then, I used five photos for 2 points each, giving me a grand total of ten points. I was not able to complete the little challenge, which was to post on a day with a “t” in it, so my total was 13 points.
What’s your passion? What’s your favorite pen color?
