About the Book

Ever since she was 12, Asma knew her purpose in life was to write. So she spent most of her time growing up learning about the craft.

Fast forward to 2014. Swept into the life of early adulthood, Asma had not written in two years, and the frustration and fear of not being able to get back into it was mounting each day.

What if she lost her writing magic? What if she could no longer create anything worthwhile?

At the suggestion of a friend, Asma took on a certain challenge— committing herself to write every day, for the next 100 days, and posting it on social media, with the hashtag #100DaysOfWriting.

The result is an experimental journey of self-discovery, and in bravely sharing her world to a wider audience. Constellations of Home is a collection of poetry and prose, mapping the writer’s self-expression as she navigated through life and loss, with the intent of writing her self back home.
