Since I was in high school my stepdad said positive things about my writing. I once over heard him telling my mom I was a great writer. I always remember Neil saying “Ayesha is a great writer”. That made me feel good. My male professors didn’t really feel like I was a capable writer but I thank God for Edi! Edi said Ayesha you’re a good writer and you’re a poet. I am going to have a memoir (a book length memoir). I am almost at my end of the summer goal of having 120 pages or 40,000 words. I will set my goal of having 60,000 words by January 31, 2018. I’ll be 37 then. I want to publish my memoir by age 40.
