Thoughts on becoming a successful writer and Hubpages author
Writing takes true patience
My response to AEvans
Thank you AEvans for this inspiration to prepare a long in depth response, I do believe in my writings as well mainly because of when I was in high school. As a student in grade school overall I was very studious, and use to study like a mad man, and when it came to note taking I simply loved it.
I also enjoyed listening to teachers a great deal, so the whole learning process itself of education, may have in fact rubbed off on me as I approached the later high school grades.
You know, back then in H.S. even though I was surely just a teenager, somehow my mind was always on fire (figuratively speaking) like an adult, when it came to creativity, and writing was one of my favorite things to do. The funny thing is, I didn't really enjoy English class much in elementary school and I was a New York City kid. So you can imagine the difficulty I had with it all back then, because our school system is totally screwed up here, and like many inner city schools across America and even many middle class as well as rural areas.

High School motivation
When I actually arrived at my 11th grade year in high school, it was the time when I found my true writers voice, my creative writing teacher read a few of my exam papers, and was blown away. From that point onwards she began to take a much closer look at me and my abilities to produce written words, she helped me to expand my potential in many ways.
She actually went out of her way eventually thereafter, to take out time from her normal class schedule, to give me private writing lessons. This was something I totally honored about my teacher, the fact that I was enabled to receive special treatment as a student of hers, which it surely began to help mold me mentally and shape the contours of my writing skills even further (I must have become a special project of hers).
At one point she even decided to section me off from the normal class, where I soon became the school editorial writer, and editor of their newspaper, "The Literary Cavalcade", was its name I'll never ever forget it. What was funny is the same thing had happened to me in my computer class the very same year, because I was performing far above, and beyond the other students. I guess it was because I began to fall in love with the idea of learning as a high school student, and computers was my joy and hobby back then as well.
Note: The image below is the article that inspired this one to be written, and its a worth while read for sure by Hubpages author AEvans.
AEvans interesting article that inspired me to write this hub
This is when I knew I had something that the average student has never found, I had a gift of taking words apart at their seams, and regurgitating them back into a smoother flow of sorts for many readers, and it really didn't matter the subject I was writing on, I have learned a valuable lesson indeed, and that was that I was becoming a true writer in my own right, just as you've found in yourself Julianna aka AEvans (A link to the first inspired hub she had me write that deals with cancer).
"Julianna, I love how you explained your experience here on the web in your hub, and how hubpages has helped you leverage things in your writing career. We all know that it isn't that easy at all to do such things, and so for you've managed to make such a profound impression on others here as well as outside networks, as a hubpages writer this is quite an impressive accomplishment to achieve my dear friend, oh yes indeed it is."
Once again AEvans, thanks for all the words of encouragement for all of us writers on hubpages, and for helping us become more motivated to be courageous like yourself, and to possibly help many hubber's find their true writers voices as well, no matter how tough or difficult things may appear to be. This hub is actually the second time you've inspired me to write a hub since I been on hubpages, and that definitely says something.
