First of all, hello! Welcome to my freshly created website and thanks for reading! First blog posts are always tricky. This one is especially difficult since I’m not entirely sure what I want this blog to be just yet (and just like all writing, it will probably develop its own personality over time and have a life of its own.)
I’ve been blogging in various forms for several years now (e.g. documenting personal travels, reviewing art happenings around the University of Michigan campus, etc.) but now my creative writing portfolio, my freelance work, and my blog will all be in one digitally compact space.
I usually have a penchant for significant dates, and other than the fact that it’s my parents’ anniversary today, this website has a birthday all of its own. So I guess chocolate and champagne would probably be appropriate?
This week is a hectic one, as I am packing up all of my things and in exactly one week, I will be driving across the country to Vermont to begin the next chapter of my life. I am starting a two-year MFA program in Writing and Publishing at the Vermont College of Fine Arts, and couldn’t be more excited (or anxious to just be there now!) Of course, the hardest part of packing is deciding which books to bring with me. Is 100 too many?
So hopefully, this blog figures out what it wants to be somewhere along the way. There will undoubtedly be musings on the writing process, pictures of wondrously beautiful Vermont landscape, the latest on what I’m reading, listening to, watching, and perhaps a doodle or two.
Hop aboard, fasten your seatbelt, and enjoy the ride!
