I'm a nineteen, going quickly to twenty, young adult
who loves writing, reading, eating (yes, I'm a food junkie!), & getting to know other people. I am currently living in Brazil, & have a dog and three cats.
I dream of:
- starting my own chocolate business - And becoming an international best-selling author
Advice: Don't let people tell you what your limits are
They have nothing to do with what you're going to do, or who you're going to be. So set and break your own limits, whether in school, job, or personal life.
The Commaful story I'm most proud of is "Friendship Advice"
Which as much as I was a bit doubting, reached the ranks of all time top, an honor and privilege to which I feel humbled. https://commaful.com/play/therinamartins/friendship-advice
I love Commaful because I can be more personal here.
Other communities are for my "other" writings, but here I find my safe haven where I can be bare and not feel ashamed.
Advice For Commaful Creators
Don't worry if you don't do well at first. Just be yourself & love being yourself. Readers love people who are secure with themselves, & sometime or another you'll start picking up speed
Being a writer, for me, is not about the money I'm going to make with it. It's about those few people who change because of me.
It's about those people who look up to me because they love the way I am. It's for those nobodies who think they are invisible, but learn that they're not when they read what I write.
Life is always going to throw flaming curve balls at you.
The secret of not losing authenticity is by not losing wonder and love in the little things.
Our lives are made out of little things, pieces and bits, but it all joins together in the end to make us who we are. We should be proud of that! Enjoy it. Love it. Live it. That is my motto.
