A New Direction

This is the first new year which brought time for reflection for me. I've been away from social media (save for posting a few photos of Forest from the holidays) and spending most of my time, with my baby of course, but every few seconds of free time at a moment has been dedicated to my writing. Since I was in the seventh grade and first fell in love with literature, I wanted to be a writer. My plan since then for school and such was always just to have a job that could sustain me while I write until it would become a full time job. So I went to school and graduated, then life happened, and this blog happened and suddenly I'd went years without focusing on my writing, and completely hadn't even noticed. It's been taking alot of courage to share my writing, as it has always been something I did privately. But there has been a recent shift in me, and I feel thousands of stories being whispered to me every minute and I need to let them out. So this post is basically a fair warning that my blogging on this site will be significantly less often and I may stop working as a brand rep altogether. For now, I'm trying to juggle mothering, working with a handful of amazing shops as a brand rep (I will continue the parterships I have already made and cease to work with new companies for now), and writing. If you're interested, you can follow my writing blog HERE. So far I have only published a short story for the book I'm working on, but I will be working on adding as much content as possible in the coming weeks. So here's to another year, a better year and following our dreams!

  1. I'm glad you're feeling inspired--I took a look at your writing blog and I love your writing style. I've dabbled in writing and it's a great hobby of mine. I have over a dozen notebooks filled to the brim with short stories and a disconnected novel.

    I hope you find happiness in your writing!
