Lately, I started to develop a burning desire for writing stories. The desire that emanates from within wasn’t just about any stories but stories of real people and real events; stories that carry volumes and speak to people in their own ways; stories that could be related to our daily lives and stories perhaps we never imagined of their existence. How often do we read stories of others and say, “Oh my God!” That is right, now and then we come across stories that leave us speechless. We associate some with our own experience and for some we get shocked in disbelief. These are the kind of stories that are boiling inside me waiting to erupt like a volcano. And yes I am interested in writing stories that would speak to people; stories that can give insight and make a difference in anyway possible.
I must confess, I found writing hard. But I didn’t give up easily. I knew if I try harder, I could make it right. That is what I did when I wrote my first book: The Lawless Nation. I knew I would make it, if I keep trying no matter what. As Roy Bennett once said, “there are five important things for living a successful and fulfilling life: never stop dreaming, never stop believing, never give up, never stop trying, and never stop learning.” He is right. I never stopped dreaming; never stopped believing; never stopped learning; and I didn’t give up. Every step of the way, I learned. Every challenge has taught me a lesson and I keep on learning. So was my new adventure on writing stories. I am learning by the minute.
My first book, my first story, The Lawless Nation, is ready for the public. It is waiting for you to read it. If you are interested in getting a copy of my book, it is available on Amazon as ebook and paperback. It is also available at Semayat as paperback. Alternatively, you can contact me, and I will make sure you get one, where ever you are.
