I am Debora,
a passionate and creative writer. I have been writing since I could hold a pen in my hand. Writing was my way of escaping to another reality when I was a child because the one I was living in was often painful.
I was labeled a 4.5-girl at school as my Italian literature teacher could not understand my writing and often it was too imaginative to make any sense.
I believed I was a bad writer but this did not stop me from writing.
When I started to work in corporate, my writing was often dismissed. My former boss thought that it was too informal and not good enough.
I believed that too! So I started to withdraw and almost felt ashamed to express myself through my words.
When I left my job and I started my own business I had to start writing to attract and engage my audience.
I was terrified to write. I was terrified to be judged. So I started to write in a way that did not reflect who I really was.
I was afraid that my way of writing would not be accepted or liked.
It took me a while until I started to really go out there and speak my true voice and show my passion.
To my surprise, apart from the many private messages I received about spelling mistakes, the wrong use of brackets and the wrong use of words, I started to receive so many positive messages from people saying they loved my writing, and would never skip past my posts and my content as it was THAT good, and people started to respond and buy my products and services.
