You Can Write Your Story (Guest Post by Anne Peters, Author of The Dragon Who Would Be King)
Imagine there is a magical world where a dragon is raised by an owl. Now, imagine that the dragon spends most of his childhood thinking that he is an owl, only to find out that he is a dragon. Not only that, but the dragon learns the he is apart of an ancient prophecy that states that he, with the help of a human, must rise up and save his beloved world from the clutches of an evil sorcerer. Intrigued? If so, read on.
This is a part of the basis of my fanciful story, “The Dragon Who Would Be King.” Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Anne Peters. And I’m visually impaired. Although, I prefer the term alternately enabled. You are probably wondering, “how can someone with a visual impairment, who has a full time job, write a book?” Well, let me shed some light on that subject. First of all, writing a book is hard work. But anyone can do it. It doesn’t matter whether you have a disability or not. The trick is not to give up. You have to be dedicated. Think of writing a book as your second job. This book took me two years to write and eight months to edit, format, and publish. I would brainstorm during the week. Then I would write on the weekends. My message to all the would-be writers out there is this: if you have a story to tell, start writing now. Don’t let anything, or anyone, hold you back.
Now, let’s get back to this wonderful tale. The “human” that I referred to earlier eventually becomes visually impaired and must find a way to adapt and fulfill, with the assistance of the dragon, the prophecy. I did this to illustrate that people with disabilities can do amazing things if only given the chance. Also, I value teamwork. I have always wanted to write a fantasy book for kids. Furthermore, I think it’s important to keep teaching our children about issues such as Disability Rights. I could go on, but I do not want to deprive anyone of the pleasure of reading my book. You can find it on Amazon and Apple Books. Happy reading!
