A re-intro of sorts…
I haven’t written here in awhile. In fact, it was first designed as a school project in my Mags 2.0 class. You may still see ancient remnants from those school days that have long passed. Ok, maybe not quite so long ago. In mid May, I was officially finished the Book and Magazine Publishing post-grad course complete with a 6 week internship. An internship that turned into a summer student position and which (in mid Aug) will turn either into an editorial assistant or developmental editor position. So… things are really starting to shake up.
But, that’s not why I started this up again. You may ask why I have. I am wondering that myself, to be honest but it’s more than just a place to get myself out there in a safe exposure kind of way. It’s a place to talk about those things that are important to me, whether it is writing related, work related, or just plain randomness. I’ve learned a lot this past year– good and bad. I’ve changed. That’s the basis of all this.
I’ve always been into books and the process of them. Even before I began writing, I could remember spending hours designing book covers for what I thought at the time would be future books of mine. It wasn’t much, but mere pieces of paper that I had placed over a Goosebump’s book and traced to get the general shape. I loved dreaming up ideas for back blurbs and creating covers. Like so many other writers, writing is my life- each character, each world. And like so many others, I could not just shove aside the keyboard and not write their story. And sometimes, I have to wonder if I’m not just a little bit crazy… although I never have claimed to be sane… it’s more fun that way. <g>
“Many people hear voices when no-one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up in rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing.” -Margaret Chittenden
