Today is free writing day. No self-editing, no trash-talking, and no second guessing, just go.
I will try it!
Never Late to Learn! It is my motto in learning. I am an old lady! Indeed! But, I want to learn and to improve my writing. To be honest, I loved writing since I was a child. I got my first lesson about writing from my great father. He had good skill in handwriting, so he taught me about it first. The second step, he gave me many books, and I couldn’t read those books. I only saw its pictures within the books. Since that time, I fell in love in reading and drawing. Alhamdulillah, I got all from my Dad. He was amazing Dad for me!
The next step, I got my handwriting skill from my teacher in the first grade. I write, write and write every day. By reading and writing, I could get much knowledge. I loved reading and writing a lot. I used Bahasa Indonesia in the first time. Someone who has suggested me to learn English was my mother. She isn’t an English teacher. She gave me a simple English book. It was about vocabularies and very simple grammar. My Mom advised me to memorize English words 5 words each day. Since that, I loved English too. But, I admit, my English isn’t good enough.
I used English only at my schools, I had never used it at home. I didn’t have friends to practice it. Luckily, I could practice my English and my Arabic effectively in Islamic Boarding School. I had many friends there. The important thing we practiced both every day. We didn’t use grammar in our speaking. I brought a dictionary pocket to everywhere. Just practice in speaking.
After finished my study there, I didn’t practice them for 12 years. I had forgotten a lot both English and Arabic. Alhamdulillah, I can learn and practice my English and my writing skill in my virtual home WordPress. It’s a good chance for me to improve all. I have to say, I get many advantages by doing blogging and following writing 101. I can feel it! I have gotten amazing English teachers, beautiful friendship, and wonderful suggestions from fellow bloggers. Masha’Allah, It was amazing! I don’t have any reasons to leave WordPress and my writing activity. I’d love to say, keep blogging and happy writing!
Many thanks to everyone who has taught me here! You’re beautiful! I love You all! ❤
