I am writing this letter to explain the pieces of writing I plan to do in the near future. So, here goes.
I have a few ideas floating about in my head. One is a short story about sight loss. I hope to find a good way to write a story about my sight loss. I would like to do this for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that I think it would be good Therapy for me, since it would give me an oppertunity to get how I feel down on paper, and tell people how I'm feeling without having to say the words out loud. The other reason is that I would like to contribute to the information available for people dealing with sight loss, since there doesn't seem to be anything that truely tells people that they aren't alone with the feelings and fears they are probably feeling. All the information seems to be centred around the medical side of things, and physically dealing with skills they need to adapt, but none of it deals with the emotional side of sight loss.
I would also like to compile a book of short children's stories. This one is more for my enjoyment, though I certainly hope that the children enjoy it too. There will be books of animal stories, stories about inanimate objects that are alive, and stories about children who have all kinds of fun adventures. I'm hoping to include morals in at least some of them, so as to revive the types of stories with lessons in them that were so popular in the past.
I have a few other ideas floating about in my head, but most of them are only half formed ideas, so I wont discuss them just yet.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my future ideas for writing projects.
