Becoming A Recognized Online Writer
First of all, I need to tell you that my native language is not english, even though I love, love, love, love writing and the english language. For me, the english language is beautiful and there are a lot of ways to string the words to make it sound beautiful.
Anyway, I’ve been writing in one of the most popular writing websites. Mind you, there are millions of stories submitted, and mine is just a speck among them. I was new, unprepared, and in a way, disadvantaged with my background and original language.
I almost have no reads in my story, and nobody ever wanted to read it. At that time, I had no idea about The Secret. I was just kind of obsessed with writing and bought a notebook to document everything that’s happening with my story and the website. I keep track on how many reads and readers that I get. I also write down goals and what I want in my story. In there, I wrote I want to have 5 million reads and 10,000 fans.
Mind you, these are the numbers of the most recognized writers on that website.
It took me awhile, but I kept writing and writing, and I stopped trying to promote my story, and suddenly, influxes of readers just started pouring in out of nowhere. I didn’t even promote my story, and they just started reading it and the numbers grew so fast. I got 2k new readers in just a month, and even though I originally only wanted 5 million reads, it has totaled more than 10 million reads now. I am now one of the most recognized writers on that website, and the rapid growth that I had was such a surreal experience, as I literally sprouted from a nobody to somebody.
Even one of the officials on that website contacted me to offer me a writing job for their events. It’s such an unexpected gift that The Secret and my passion has given to me.
Thank you, Rhonda. Thank you, thank you.
And remember to always chase after your dreams and never forget your passion, because if you believe it, IT WILL DEFINITELY HAPPEN!
