Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I usually have a hard time keeping myself to a single new year’s resolution, but in 2018, I want to challenge myself to write more. I have noticed recently that I go through periods of writing a lot when I am motivated and have a deadline to complete something. Seriously, deadlines do wonders for any writer!

My thesis has been the one deadline that allowed me to write a lot, and by a lot, I mean 70+ pages of writing. In the new year I hope to dedicate myself more to my writing and put aside time to journal my thoughts everyday. I know it will be hard, but for me writing is a fantastic form of therapy and self-expression.

Even when I’m writing from the perspective of another character, there is something euphoric about searching for the right words to put onto the page, or even about feeling so consumed while writing that I lose track of time altogether.

Reading has the same affect on me, but writing mesmerizes me in a distinctly different way that is hard to put into words.

In 2017, I wrote a lot. I found characters in myself that I didn’t know I had. I wrote stories about magic, witches, enchantresses, and strong women. I know it might sound a bit odd or strange, but I think the characters I wrote taught me a little bit more about what it means to be strong and what it means to believe so passionately about something that it nearly drives you mad.

2017 for me was the year of many fictions, and uncovered truths. It was also the year of many more stories that were as disastrous as they painted their fingers across the hands of 2017’s clock, but the past is the past as much as it remains to the present and the future. 2018 will be the same and it will likely be different. 2018 will be another story, just as 2017 was.

I’ve opened my book and I’m ready to read.
