Well here it is folks.
After years of obfuscation, avoidance, mind changing and trying to fit into places I don’t belong, I am a writer.
I have been a server, a bartender, a coat check girl, a go-go dancer. I have been a tarot card reader, an herb mixer, a witch and a world traveller. I have been a ghost hunter, an adventurer, a gamer, a nerd. I have been a corporate event planner, a game designer, a producer and an accountant. And through it all, I have been a writer.
When I was a child I wrote stories and journals endlessly. When I was a traveller I didn’t take pictures, instead choosing to write about my adventures. I still remember the long bus rides through the hills of Peru and the deserts of Egypt. I would gaze out the window and scribble poetically in my journal, describing sunsets in foreign lands. Now, as I approach 30 I am a few weeks away from completing my first novel and I have a second one waiting to be written. I have joined a writing group, read voraciously and find myself being drawn to writing more and more. So the time has come for me to say with certainty: I am a writer.
In order to make it official though, I thought I blog was in order. Here is the place I can share old writing, new writing and book reviews. Here I can test the waters, ask for feedback and invite other writers to chat. I will endeavor to post something every day and as I have recently signed up for a daily ‘writing prompt’ at sarahselecky.com, I will at least make a point to share whatever comes from that. Please feel free to join in, be inspired and post your own work if you feel the desire!
So here it is: I am a writer and these are my Happy Musings…
