From the word, go (or from whatever word I happen to pen first), I am here . . . dedicated and excited to share.
Of course, I am referring to my writing-- and all of the ever-sparking inspirations, constant struggles, periodic successes, and perpetual perseverance it takes for me to create a polished piece of writing. I don’t find the process easy—not at all, which is (I know) the driving force behind my need to do it. Writing, for me, is a challenge—a challenge I thrive on. The written word is nothing less than beautiful in my eyes. Striving toward the betterment of my craft, learning something new everyday to improve, keeps me writing. I often wonder: Is it the creation itself, the finished piece of writing, or is it the creating, the penning process, I love the most? Oh, let’s be honest, I have a deep love affair with both! I hope through my journaling here, I will work through some of my writer’s bumps, giving me the opportunity to reflect on where I’ve been, where I am at, and where I hope to end up down the road.
Complexity rules my life, and I often travel down rocky roads, trying to balance my goals as an author with my role as mom to my three fabulous children. My family is a part of who I am, both personally and as a writer; stories about them and the joy they bring me may find their way into my posts. J Also, I am an avid reader, so I look forward to sharing my impressions of stories, poems, essays, articles, and novels I’ll be reading. I look forward to meeting other readers and writers on Blogger ~ J ~
Shout Out: To Nick for talking me into starting a blog (Can you even believe I finally did it?!) You were right, I am glad to be here ~ Love you, sis! <3
