I've loved writing and sharing my stories ever since I was little.

Yet I still don't know how to start....

Basically, I just want to tell you that I'm thinking about writing articles on my weheartit. I'm not sure what I want to write about yet, but I am pretty sure I want to do so.

As a little kid I always wrote stories. I loved making up fantasy ones and my mom would write them down. Next thing I was reading them and drew soms pictures next to it. As I got older, my stories changed. When I was like ten years old, I started writing more serious stories (about actual people, you know). And that's also when I discovered 'wattpad'. You know, that site where people can write and upload their own stories. Most wattpad users write fanfictions, including me. I started writing fanfictions about One Direction, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez... et cetera. My first couple of stories were terrible, but after a while I started a story that got a lot of reads. I was so happy back then. But I got to the point that school became more serious and I didn't have time to go on wattpad anymore. So I quit.

After about a year and a half I had to write a story for my class. At first it was very difficult, but when I was busy writing I just couldn't stop and the words started flowing out of my fingertips. (just like writing this pointless article, congrats if you're still reading this!!)

Writing that story was when I realized I wanted to start writing again. My teacher loved my story and engouraged me to take up writing again. I started writing stories on my computer again. At some point, when I got to the next grade, I got caught up in school again. I was very stressed and I was also dealing with mental health issues. I quit writing again, because when I wasn't doing stuff for school, I was just sleeping or watching movies in my bed. I had litterally no energy to do things.

I overcame my mental health issues and started to be happy again. I cut the people with bad influences out of my life and surrounded myself with positive people. I had more energy and started to be more productive.

I read a lot of blogs and fell in love with them. I loved reading articles like this and articles about things that I find interesting.

So, I decided I wanted to do that as well. And that's what I'm doing right now.

I am aware this article sucked, but I felt like this was a great way to open why I am doing this.

My first articles are going to be miserable, I know that. I just have to get used to writing again, especially since I have never written articles like this.

If you are reading this: thank you so so much <3

lots of love,

brandy

p.s. please let me know what you think, it would mean the world to me :)
