I decided to make this blog due to circumstance: I had to take a year off from graduate school and, for the time being, I'm working as a freelance journalist.
I've wanted to write for some time, and I figured it would make sense to give myself a year to write. I want this to be a serious goal: I think it would be great if I could publish my novel, or at least find some success come next fall.
So, we'll see. I'm continually questing for my purpose. I need to know what I'm meant to do. I'm positive writing is a part of it, but I think there's something else there.
I've wanted to be a teacher, an actor, a college administrator, a professor. But it's not possible, though, to do all of those things.
I just want to figure it all out.
And I hope I do.
In the meantime, I'm going to put the pen to the page and see what comes of it.
