2018 is coming to an end. It was a busy year for me. A lot of things happened this year.
I got five children books published.
The sales of my books reached the figure of 700 copies. ( For me it is an achievement)
A lot of public and school libraries added my books to their libraries.
I conducted many story telling sessions during the last three months.
I met amazing people.
I inspired many kids to write.
I gained reviews from many popular bloggers and literature fanatics in Pakistan including The Pakistani Woman The Archi Effect Noon Memes ( she mentioned my work in a post) @blabbers view point The Average Mommy (she reviewed my books in her group) @the eastern mommy @for a cause @the Pakistani literature page Sam Mubz @she and books (Almas Mustaqeem) @mama.ashu and many others.
I launched my first local title.
I got reviews from 70/ of my readers.
I started to write Urdu stories.
I achieved many academics achievements.
This story of my achievements and success seems so powerful and glittery but behind the scene moments were hard.
Managing a lot of public and privates task was tough.
I met some toxic people that had the ability of draining all the high spirits and energies by saying just two sentences. (They were few but they had an impact)
Criticism that wasn’t constructive in the sense that the words sapped me and were harsh. Nothing in them told me that the person wants to improve my work.
But then I told myself:
My work isn’t be perfect ( nothing is perfect in this world ) but it has inspired the mass.
It was not 100/ for the people but I put in 100/ and I believe it was 80/ for most of them.
Everything in the world improves with the time and I will also improve and develop.
My job is to try rest lies in the hand of Allah Almighty.
Those who criticized me for not being 100 percent perfect, I imagine them in my heart and say:
Why don’t you do what I have done and I will see how perfect you will do it. Try and just get one of your book published and I will see how you do it.
Life will soon come to an end. I don’t want to die without trying and making an impact. I wish to leave a legacy behind. I won’t be a perfect writer but I will be the one taking many first steps.
My message for the new year: Please be very careful when using words. They have a deep impact.
A secret about me: I just love to stare to at creations with love and affection.
