Its hard being a reader and a fangirl.
Its hard not to feel.
I’ve become a reader and fangirl for 8 years now and through those 8 precious years were laughter, happiness, anger and scalding tears through reading worlds after worlds after worlds.
I can’t stop being this sympathetic to these characters I love.
Its like they’re my best friend and companion in this journey of pages.
Its hard not to cry and feel brave to those fallen characters.
Other people might not understand me but my co-readers and fangirls do.
The joy of the adventure inside those pages aren’t like those joy which we always knew.
The joy it brings are much more …
The joy it brings makes us different from those who don’t know what it feels to read a book.
The hard part is the pain and tears.
In every story, pain and tears are always present, just like joy.
It’s like a punch in the gut when an important character dies for the better good of the story.
Some of us hate those nasty authors for fictionally killing these characters which whom we love so much.
But for me I understand sacrifices to make the story intriguing.
As a writer, it’s like a spice in the story for people to talk about.
It adds buzz to people who are curious to read the story.
Writers do this because they still want people to know that these characters are like us because they are inspired by true people.
They love, they laugh, they get hurt and they die.
They put human emotions in them so that we can relate and eventually attach ourselves to the story and the character.
I hate being attached.
Every time a character gets his/her heartbroken or he/she dies my heart gets shattered in billions of pieces.
I always ask myself,
How do I get over each story and heartbreak?
Ah! But you see I can’t answer that because I just move on to the next story, to the next heartbreak.
But what I love being a reader and a fangirl is the lessons the authors impart in the stories.
It is one of my motivation for reading.
A lesson is not just acquired but it is learned and applied.
And books just tell these lessons that are so precious and be thankful for.
You may ask what is my first motivation is …
It is the Hot, Mysterious, uber handsome Lead Guys in the story ;)
For those who are non-readers and fangirls, you’re missing a lot of adventures.
Take my advice and go to the nearest bookstore and go buy a book why you’re still young.
