how did this piece come into being?

March 20, 2020

After weeks of stowing away words into my laptop , after hundreds of hours spent tweaking every letter I typed, after many pages filled with scribbles and scratched out mind maps of stories that never made it to a Word document, after massaging my aching wrists many times, after a dozen pretty notebooks that I used to call 'novels' , after countless rejection letters  that cluttered my inbox , after nights filled with self doubt and sleeplessness, after telling my mother a thousand times that my words were useless,  after seventeen years of being a storyteller, a tale-weaver, a wordsmith, I finally found my voice.
PLEASE tell me what you thought of this!

    This is so relatable, you captured the anxiety of writing so delicately here.
