As a writer, one of the things I enjoy the most (besides reading reviews on my books) is meeting new people, especially readers. I love seeing the look on a reader’s face when they meet me or see me for the first time. I get so tickled when a reader tells me that I do not look like how they had imagined. Never fails. It seems thus far that most readers who have read my stories assume that I am an older African American woman because of how my stories are written and the lingo that I use. I have been told countless times that I have an “old soul” so maybe that is where I get it from. Nevertheless, the looks on people’s faces when they see me are priceless. Some are shocked that I look so young, others are shocked at how little or small I am and then there are those who tell me that I do not have the look of a writer. Go figure. Either way, I love their reactions, all of them because I love seeing the element of surprise on their face. I love being what they did not expect me to be and that my dear friend is not only satisfying, but it is also gratifying. Readers are special because without them writing itself would be a complete waste of time. What is the point of writing a story if there is no one to read it?
As I continue on my journey as a writer, I will do my best to not only establish myself as a writer, but to also keep pumping out entertaining stories for readers to read. I have a ways to go still, but I am far from giving up. Who knows the future will bring. Until next time folks!
