For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a writer. In elementary school, I spent countless hours after school writing epistolary novels that followed the structure of my beloved Dear America books and screenplays where I put myself into my favorite movies adapted from books. It still stings a bit that these first forays into writing entered the great Recycle Bin in heaven each time our family computer crashed.
When I entered college, I was going to study history and work in a museum until I took a required English class and never looked back. I quickly found that I could count creative writing courses toward my major and let myself indulge in short story, playwriting, and poetry (and I loved every minute).
Now I’m taking my passion and getting serious about it, and I think everything I’m learning about writing a novel might be helpful for you, too!
And for anyone interested, here’s a bit about what I’m working on right now.
