I love writing. I’ve been writing since I learned I could make my own stories, and I started an epic (I’ll finish it eventually, but there’s, like, research involved, don’t rush me) when I was around 10 – 11. I still want to finish it
even though it’s basically Avatar the Last Air Bender, but I can make some changes it’s fine and I will. I finished my Seeker trilogy a few months ago and am just waiting on the publisher to get back to me. Which I’m sure they will. Eventually.
That said, I haven’t been writing. At all. It was a struggle to finish my trilogy, a real struggle, and since starting it I was diagnosed with depression, had a terrible psych, started counseling, got a much better psych, got medicated (hallelujah, better living through chemistry) but… I still don’t want to write. Not like I used to. (In the time since starting the first book I also changed jobs four times, moved twice, started dating, got married, adopted a second dog… yeah.)
I’ve finally started coming up with a few ideas again, and I always enjoy talking them out, but I can’t get myself to commit them to the page. My sister recommended I start this blog as a change of pace. It’s closer to talking to people than writing a regular random scene would be, and maybe I’ll get some
gratification feedback. Only thing to do is try it out, so here’s the first post. Fingers crossed for many more.
