This is my first time starting a blog and I’m both nervous and excited at the same time. I’ve always considered starting a blog and have heard many people talk excitedly about it, but I’ve always been too nervous about “putting myself out there”. I’ve always been a quiet, shy girl, keeping to myself about most topics, never truly feeling comfortable or understanding how to correctly say something out loud. Where I excelled, and continue to excel, is in my writing. When I have a piece of paper and a pencil in my hand, I can say anything or create anything, whether it be a piece of literature or a painting. It’s the only way I can release and express myself completely and honestly. And that is where the blog comes into play. My dream is to someday be published; to write stories that can immerse other people in worlds that they never knew could exist and meet characters that are both comic and heart-wrenching. I’ve come to realize how hard it is to be published, especially when I am nervous and shy most of the time. My goal, then, with this blog is to share some of my stories, to “put myself out there”. I want to become published more than ever, so I decided that a blog might be a way to accomplish that. Even if it does not lead to the end that I hope, I think it will still be fun and, I hope, I can at least provide a little entertainment to anyone who may stumble across these words.
So here’s to the beginning!
