If You Only Knew

Tanya’s story begins when she is in fifth grade. As a character, she was born in 2012 for a Nanowrimo project. the 30,000-word NNWM story (working title: My Name is Eva) only covered Tanya’s troubling childhood which–I’ll admit–was based on some painful events of my own childhood, hence the unorthodox writing style that is loosely termed as “creative writing”. I’ll also admit that writing it was more fun than I thought and very therapeutic.

If You Only Knew picks up in Tanya’s high-school years, some years after My Name is Eva. While it is not as autobiographical as My Name is Eva (Tanya’s substance-abuse problems are NOT the problems I faced in HS) some of the attitudes about life and other perplexities she faced–as in regards to her view of God, family, and her low sense of self-worth–were things I definitely had to work out.
