Write What You Know (Diversity and Representation in the Media)

In my years of being a writer, I've mainly stuck to one style, which is free verse poetry. I've found that it's a great niche for the style of writing I most comfortably revert to, which includes writing based on imagery, emotions, and a lack of structure. However, after trying my hand at creative fiction [...]

What Is My Life Going to Be?

As you can probably tell from my upload dates, it's been a while since my last post. I just wanted to quickly address that- I have plenty of reasons (or excuses, depending on how you look at it) for not posting, but ultimately, I couldn't tell where the line was between oversharing and keeping people [...]

Before my freshman year of college began, I was struck by the thought that my childhood home, where I [...]

On Being A Good Person

As I said in my first post on here, I'm trying to write for myself- while I'm so appreciative of anyone who happens to read this, I also want whatever I write to be meaningful to me. However, I've already been having a really tough time with that! I have six posts drafted on here, [...]

Welcome!

This blog and its first post have been in the works since February of this year. Why did it take me over eight months to finally publish something? Basically, I created this blog, drafted a post, and read it over and over until I was finally satisfied with how everything sounded, but something still prevented me from hitting [...]
