So I’m geeked today y’all! Why?
Because the first piece of writing I’ve ever submitted to an online site/community is up! I honestly forgot about it!
You can check it out here! Be sure to comment and show me some love! I welcome all feedback!
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been writing. I have a love-hate relationship with it. Been writing fiction (and non-fiction) stories since third grade. Writing poetry since sixth or seventh grade. You can/could always find me with a pen and paper growing up, it was always what I got in trouble for in church when I was supposed to be paying attention, or in school when I was bored. Even at my current job, the one time I did get in trouble? It was for writing on the job. Ha!
Oddly, as many books as I’ve read, I can’t say that I’ve wanted to be a ‘writer’. I always thought it was something other people did. I wanted to be a sportscaster/sports journalist, now a public relations specialist (as of right now).
One of my first favorite jobs was working for my alma mater in the marketing and communications department, and I loved it! I did try a few other kinds of jobs, including my current one, to see what else is out there, but now that I know? I’m accepting the truth about myself.
Truth is, I can’t NOT write.
Writing, for me, is like everything else in my life I’ve ever loved. I sometimes hated deciding to do it, or the process, but the results of the process gave me a high like none other. Only a few other things have given me this kind of high. That would be Drill Team, dance team at church growing up, and travel, but not even those things can compare to the current bliss of seeing my writing, online, live and in living color, being read by people all over the world.
I could get used to this.
