I’ve learned a lot about the industry over the past few years. What I’ve seen is that along with filmmaking, it is probably the most subjective industry out there. A writer may spend months perfecting their story, putting their heart and soul into it, staying up the whole night working on it, only for an editor to reject it with a short sentence of vague reasoning. That’s what can make the industry very frustrating.

What I tell people who ask is that you need to write something that you believe in. Don’t worry about what others think about it. If you think it’s a great story and one that needs to be told, then write it! The other thing is that writers need to have thick skin. Editors and agents reject hundreds of works a day, so never take it personal. Even critics give bad reviews all the time. But if you believe in your work and did your best, then never let the opinions of anyone tear you down. Write stories that you’d want to read, regardless of what others say!(less)
Ammar Habib The best thing about writing is simple: freedom! You get the freedom to be anywhere and be anyone! There's honestly nothing like it.

"I found this book fascinating. I had never heard of Dr. Edwards, and her story is certainly a compelling one. This book gives a pretty balanced overview of Dr. Walker's life and careers. It is not, thank the Ghods, hagiographic; Dr. Walker's characte" Read more of this review »

"Outstanding Biography

This biography stands out of the crowd. Dr. Mary Walker was a real-life "Wonder Woman" in so many different ways. Though she's most remembered for her Medal of Honor, her life was SO much more than just a single achievement. I'm " Read more of this review »

“When the masses are against you, when fear is on every side, and when it seems like you are standing alone, that is when you should stand the tallest. That is when you plant yourself like a mountain, and you do what your heart knows is right. Even if death will be your only reward.”
Ammar Habib, The Heart of Aleppo: A Story of the Syrian Civil War
