I’ve talked about starting a blog for years. Literally, years. I’ve almost started, and failed, a lot. But, the other day in my Linguistics class, the presenter told us to start blogs. Start writing. Because, when the day comes to find a job, people are going to want to see your writing. And, what better place to see your writing than a personal blog. So, here goes.
I’m a writer by nature. My dad’s an author so I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. At least I fell off the tree though and I wasn’t one of those little apples that you have to pluck off the tree when it’s 30 and still living in the basement. And I don’t mind staying close to the tree. The tree is good. Words are good.
If you ask me what my favorite thing is about writing, I’d say the words. You’re probably thinking, “well duh.” But seriously. Words have the power to change people. Words have the power to change the world.
I hope to be able to share words in a way that will change you, and if not, I know they’ll change me.
