Designer’s Edge Articles ~ Finding the Author in You

I have always kept a journal of important events in my life. This is about one that is in my blood, soul and heart not to mention one of my greatest love affairs I’ve ever had WRITING. First just like most author’s I’m a person who loved to read (I still love to read). I’m that little kid who always had their nose stuck in a book. My friend always used to tease me about always reading and why don’t I write. I created fantasies but never put them to paper. I would recreate the stories that I read sometimes and do my own little twist.

Even in my dreams I would see the stories unfold like a movie (of course I was always the star) :). Then my fingers started to itch and I had to pick up something to write with. That started my writing career and I’ve been writing ever since.

If you want to be a author it’s in you. You just need to find it. The first step is to write that first word. A blank page can be intimidating but just type one word even if it just your name. All you need to do is start. Go ahead type that first word and unleash the author in you.

About McKenna Jeffries

McKenna Jeffries has loved the written word from time she picked up her first book. Soon she was creating tales of love and family. Although McKenna used to make up stories she never thought to put them on paper until....she realized the stories would keep filling her until they were written. Since then she's been writing and sharing her interracial/multicultural books. There is always some new story floating around her head. An itchy feeling in her fingers fills her until she can get a piece of paper to write it down. She writes because it's a love affair. Writing is in her blood and she enjoys taking readers on a journey. With so many ideas filling her, McKenna is always hard at work.
