I am a preemie child I had a rough childhood when i was young I was very quiet, never said anything to anyone and never really had any friends to be honest. I got bullied when I was in first grade and it kept going, the thing is, it was my cousin that always humiliated me and just made me feel bad about myself. He always use to make fun of my weight, but he knew I wouldn't say anything cause I didn't know how to stick up for myself.3rd grade came and I started writing stories, Lots of them actually my main character was always Emily.4th grade came, our class all got to write a story I wrote one about a confused ship going to the moon, pretty interesting. My teacher came to me and told me cause of my story I was picked to go see an author I didn't know who this author I was excited, that day came and it got cancelled I was pretty upset. I really wanted to go see the author, but I still got an award for my writing.
I still kept writing stories. Middle school came and I started writing quotes at the moment I have around 200 quotes, many stories I don't even know how much I have, been writing since 3rd grade maybe even 1st I don't know.7th grade came and i learned how to write poems, my first poem was about fear I loved this poem so much that I started writing poetry. I have around 40 poems today. I tried to enter into contests like the scholastic I entered four of my best poems, and I didn't get in. So I just stopped writing for a while, I mean I still have a journal that I write in but that wasn't the same. Sometimes I don't think I'm that good of a writer but I keep writing cause its the only thing that helped me express myself without me actually saying them out loud. Everything's just easier writing it down and just expressing yourself without anyone judging and that's what i'm hoping for this site that I don't get judged for my poems i'm writing just like everyone else. I write stories, quotes, poems, and in my own journal.
Writing helped me throughout life.
Just hand me a pencil and paper and I will tell you everything that happens inside me. Its just my mind taking over and setting itself free without me even knowing.
