There comes a point for every person when they start to think about their life. They think about where they’ve been, what they’ve done, and where they’re going. At some point along this thought process, they should start to realize that, whether for the better or the worse, their life did not happen the way they thought it would when they were a kid.
No matter who you are, you can most likely look back and find at least one small thing that childhood you wanted to do or be that just never happened. Yes life happens. Yes, it’s probably a good thing that older you realized that becoming Batman or a princess wasn’t the most realistic of aspirations. But there is always that one thing that you wish you had done but just didn’t have time for in the end.
True, I, personally, have not quite reached the age of looking back on things that can now never be, but what about when I do? What will I one day look back on to find that I got busy with life and just never got around to doing it?
Along this line of thinking, I realized that the one thing that I would most hate to lose into that time abyss is my writing.
Starting as a pastime and evolving into an obsession, creating stories has been a large part of my life throughout my teens and to present day. It was something I cared about greatly and my biggest hope was to someday have a published work. But, with graduation came things like full-time jobs, bills, rent, and all the other fun responsibilities that come with adulthood and, over the last few years, writing has begun to take more and more or a sideline.
This blog is my hopeful attempt to not allow my writing to disappear from my life. I believe it is too important to me to let “life happen” without it. So, I am beginning this venture with the hope that it will help me to keep it there, in some form at least. I hope that those of you who come with me on this venture will be able to glean some inspiration for some of your own projects, or just some enjoyment from the various topics that I find to explore.
