Blogfest Day 1 ~ A is for Alpha

Alpha denotes the beginning , the start , an awakening , an awareness … it makes me reflect on my own writing experience and my late beginning . As a typical late bloomer in the writing sphere , I do believe that even though no-one can go back and make a brand new start , anyone can start from new and make a brand new ending !!

A is also for ADVENTURE ~ the way in which I describe my writing experiences ! I am on a never-ending journey as a "writer-in-the-making" (which is the term I prefer to use in the place of "aspiring writer"). During my travels , I will have the privilege of meeting and interacting with many different people from many different places . This potpourri of characters will enrich my life in one way or another . They will help to mould and shape my writing experiences .

    The nice thing about writing is that we do get to start all over in the beginning, even the middle, and the end. And yes, it's quite an adventure.

    I love the term "writer in the making". I think I might ahve to steal that and add it to my vocabulary.

    I love your blog! It is so nice to read others on the "in-the-making" stage as that is where I am also. There are times when I feel maybe it's too late, however there is a sentence in your post about how "…anyone can start from new and make a brand new ending" that spoke to my soul. You are an inspiration and I thank you for visiting my blog so I could find you.

      Thanks Rasz ~~ and nice to meet you ~~ I firmly believe that age is JUST a number ! Remember , it’s NEVER too late !
      I’m thrilled that I can serve as a source of inspiration to somebody else ~ thank you 🙂

    Followed you here from the Caffeine Coquette 🙂
    I have found that in writing, everyone starts when it's time for them. For some it means that they start at 12, for others it's in their 40's and even 60's. 
    It doesn't matter 🙂 
    Have a wonderful challenge time! Greetings from a fellow A-Z blogger!

    • mish on April 2, 2011 at 12:41 pm

      Thanks Sylvia ~~ and you are right ~ age is not an issue when it comes to writing ! Gonna pop over to your blog now , to check it out ! 🙂 Enjoy the rest of the challenge .
