I have been writing for over 10 years, and you know what I’ve learned? Writing is hard, and I don’t like to be rushed.
When I was fifteen, I used to think I had to be published by the time I was eighteen. Then twenty. When I passed the age of twenty-one, I realized getting published by the time I am thirty will be a great accomplishment. And for the first time in my life, I’m okay with that. Writing is the baring of one’s soul, and I don’t want to treat it like a competition.
I began blogging at My Double Living, a place created to organize my own thoughts on stories and connect with other writers. However, my desire to grow the blog to reach higher creative heights has inspired Confabulari.
Confabulari is the Latin word for “to talk” or “chatting.” My hope is for this blog to become a site where other creative types can visit and feel casual and comfortable, gaining advice and inspiration.
I am a writer, an aspiring author, and am considering a career in editing. I don’t have everything figured out (if I claimed that they’d have to open a bed at the institution), so please join me as I navigate the world of words.
If you have questions, suggestions, or are interested in collaborating, please contact me on one of my various social media platforms. I’d love to hear from you! Happy creating!
