Book by Fatma Al Shehab

What she loves about being a writer,
is that she’ll always know what will happen in her story.
What scares her about life;
is that there is absolutely no control over what will happen.
Characters’ experiences are controllable
she is the master puppet here
determining which characters’ stories end up in heartbreak
and which live happily ever after.
She wants to be able to be in control.
She wants to know how her story ends.
That’s why her whole life;
she prefers the world she creates in pen and paper
versus the one she actually live in.
Her whole being is petrified that she has no control over her own story.
