Kamogelo Masoga’s passion to write a book started at a tender age while she was in high school. Born and bred Mmotwaneng Ga Rakgwadi at Sekhukhune, now currently residing at Nellmapius in Pretoria. It took her almost seven years to write an inspirational book “Chasing the Dream”.
This young author never thought that one day she would publish her own book. Masoga told Gauteng News that she wrote her first story in 2011 when she was in grade 8.
“It took me almost seven years to write the book because it’s a collection of 10 short stories. Then afterwards I had a writer’s block and wasn’t even interested in writing anymore until after I matriculated,”
“I decided to try again but I also gave up, because I felt like I wasn’t going anywhere, then last year I decided to write the other stories until they were ten,” she said.
Masoga said that her book is a collection of 10 short stories. She added and said that her book aimed at inspiring people to continue chasing their dreams.
“My aim as a writer is to inspire and motivate everyone. I want to motivate them to follow their passions and dreams, I want to inspire them not to give up. My advice to young writers out there is that they should never give up on their passion,”
“The stories are motivated by the challenges we experience in our everyday lives and the essays I used to write in high school made me realise that I’m actually a talented writer, they motivated me to write more.” said added.
