I'm Not A Writer

I'm not a writer...at least I wasn't until earlier this year. One morning, around the first of July, I woke up with half of the sight in my right eye gone. After countless trips to multiple specialists, I still, to this day, have no explanation for what happened. Losing partial sight isn't the end of the world, after all, according to the doctors, it could have been a whole lot worse, and believe me, it could have been. This is something I can live with as opposed to being something that could have had me departing this world a little too soon for my own liking...and I am good with that. The only real issue that bothered me was that it prevented me from doing some of the more creative things I liked to do. So, I had to find a different outlet. Around July 3rd, I sat down with my laptop and began to write. It seemed to flow fairly well and by August 1st, I had over 90,000 words and a completed book. I let a good friend read it, just to see to how bad it was to satisfy my own curiosity, but when she handed it back to me, something strange happened. She told me that I needed to do something with it...so I did. It is now the middle of December of the same year, and I am putting the final touches on book number five of this series.
Life brings many changes, some of them good, some of them, not so much. How you deal with those changes are what makes all the difference in the world. Life never goes the way you expect it to, but the little twists and turns that it tosses out can sometimes turn into something very special if you choose to just roll with it....after all, what else are you going to do?
Peace and blessings to you all!
