Hi! I'm Kim. (:
I started writing when I was in high school, but they were just ideas and poems. I remember, during my college years, I stayed in front of the computer waiting for the comments and messages from my readers. It was a blissful experience.
Even though I only had few readers, I didn't stop writing. You see, if you really love writing, it shouldn't matter if you have thousands of readers or none. Learn to write for yourself. Back then, I used to write to escape from reality, and to live in my own world.
I learned that words have the power to inspire and encourage people, so now, I do my best to put a smile on my readers' faces and make them realize that there's hope for everyone.
Music helps me in creating scenarios and plot. Sometimes, I get lost in the melody, and that's when I usually get the idea for a story.
Writing gives me a feeling of euphoria. I'm naturally curious; I think that's one of the reasons why I write. All my stories are connected; from the short stories to the published books, and to the on-going stories.
And before I became a writer, I was a reader first. I'm a bibliophile.
There are times when I feel awed because my books (The Bet, Between Now & Ever After [Anthology], Maybe Forever [ilurvfallensee], and Colliding with Fate) have been published. The Bet was made into a film (Just The Way You Are [now available on Netflix]), and is translated and published in Indonesia.
It's amazing how God works. He fulfilled His promise to me, and I believe that He is just starting.
Because of God's faithfulness, and the people who support me, reality is finally better than fiction.
I know there are more bright things in the future. ;)
Wattpad is my safe haven, and my readers are my inspiration.*
