Author’s Introduction

Fascinated by reading, I have always wanted to write my own story. This wish came true when I came across the course ELC1A04 From Lord of the Rings to Harry Potter: Fantasy, reality and humanity. I struggled when writing the story ending, as I know happy endings are not surprising, but I just couldn’t bring myself to give my characters a sad fate. My beloved teachers, editors, and reader friends came in and helped. I learnt more about human emotions through the writing process, and this experience has given me a clearer understanding of humanity, as well as inspired me to continue being creative.
