Introductory posts are at best boring and at worst awkward, so I’ll keep this short to minimize any discomfort.
Really it all comes down to one thing: I need to write. If I stop, if I decide I don’t have enough time to sit down and write, or am suffering from a creative block, my mind is restless like consistently-worked muscles that are left to deteriorate. It’s dramatic, I know, but it’s the truth! It doesn’t even matter if anyone reads the words I’ve written because they have to come out anyway, if that makes sense (it’s ok if it doesn’t!).
So. The point of this blog, at the moment, is to be a tiny corner of the internet I can call my own. I might post book reviews. I’ll probably post quotes, articles, or videos that inspire me. I want to showcase some shorter pieces I’ve written. Also document my experiences with Nanowrimo and my process of shaping the resulting 50,000 words into something recognizable. If I’m being honest there will likely be mentions of my adorable 11-month-old baby and my not-so-adorable addiction to Starbucks iced triple grande vanilla lattes.
Okay that’s probably all you need to know to get the gist of this blog. Now let’s get crackin’.
