“Tell us a little bit about yourself” is inescapable. It gets asked at job interviews, the first day of class, and when you meet someone for the first time (although usually unspoken). As a twenty one year old, it’s frustrating. I am going to come right out and say it: I have no idea who I am and I am not sorry about it.
I could tell you about my job, my interests, and my history, but do those things alone do a person justice? What I can tell you is that I am in constant wonder of the life around me. There is so much to learn, to experience, to feel. I wish I could live forever so I could be able to do it all. This feeling is what drew me to writing. You can explore a dozen, hundred, million different people and their personal stories without leaving your house.
Why start a blog? Writing stories is what I’m passionate about and I want to do it well. I want readers to be able to connect with the characters I create, to forget that they’re reading a story. By putting it on a public platform, I’m hoping to learn from other people’s experiences and get constructive criticism so I can grow as a writer.
