Taking one step forward

Marley and me, Confessions of a Shopaholic, and Inkheart, all these movies have one thing that I feel strongly about: novel, writing and journalism. Deep down, somewhere hidden I have always wanted to be a writer. When I was 16 I had tuition for English and I look forward to it every week. The teacher gave the class a title every week and we were required to produce introductions and sometimes a full essay. I eagerly wait for my essay to return to me after being marked as I was excited with what the teacher would comment.

Since young I love to read, it started with Enid Blyton, moved on to Sweet Valley Series, Sabrina the teenage witch, Sherlock Holmes, Princess Diaries, and many more fantasy and chic flicks. I love being captured in the writer's fantasy, imaginations and their expressions. I want to write because I want to give the same feeling I get from reading, I want readers to find their fantasy, their dreams, a world within them.

Writing a novel is definitely not easy and it takes time. To realise my dream, I went to the book store to find help, to hope to improve my writing techniques from experts, to make an idea into a novel. It's still a long road ahead, so I'm taking my first step now. I will try to write one entry a week on my blog on anything that comes to my mind. Please feel free to comment on my writing, I appreciate all the help I can get.


  1. My first novel I read was 倚天屠龙记 by 金庸 when I was 13 years old. The novels by 金庸 are must read items if you are able to read chinese words. He is a legend. He wrote interesting (武俠) wuxia genre novel. I can read the book for few times and I still can feel new excitements as I grows older. I'm still keen to read again any of his novel as I stop reading them few years ago.

    Lizan, try to explore and write on every genre of essay, or even create your own genre like 金庸! Dare to be different, and use your creativity always.

  2. Thanks for the advise, for now I will try to explore more on the genres that I like and then see the writing styles of those writers.

  3. I had said what i saided :P Here to wish you luck! GO Go! Write em!

    Just write it in english please? I can't read chinese :(
