Kristy just moved into my ward recently and imagine my surprise when she said one of her hobbies was writing YA fantasy! I've been really excited to get to know her and can't wait for you to get to know her too! --Nikki

Love of Writing:
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” ~Sylvia Plath
One thing that I love about writing is that the world is in constant need of new ideas, new stories, new vision. There can never be too many authors. All we have to focus on doing is making our work the best it can be. That’s why we, as authors, can unite together, share ideas, build each other up. We don’t have to try to beat each other out. We don’t have to feel bad when someone else succeeds, it only need encourage us and make it seem that much more possible that we, too, can succeed! We need more. We need each, individual person. We need you. No one else in the world can give us what you can. No one else can give us your story. Let the world feel your emotions through your characters, let us taste their failures and grow from their triumphs!
“Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart.” ~William Wordsworth
Don’t doubt yourself! Just love writing!!!
