Some of you have already read some of my previous posts but for those of you who haven’t I decided to write an official post to update readers. Over the past couple of years, I have realized that my little blog is actually reaching people! It has been an incredible experience to see the comments of complete strangers and talk to them as they become new friends. The Internet has been an amazing platform to reach out and connect with others, and I am so grateful for the chance to communicate!
Given this, I have been playing around with several different ideas. Health cooperating, I would ideally like to continue writing blogs about chronic illness, among other things, as these articles tend to have the most traction. I still believe that helping people through sharing my own story is the best way to give meaning to my journey. But at the same time, my mental health has been a rough monster to reign in. And sometimes, this means that I have to do something about it in addition to just sharing struggles with others.
Writing has been a good way for me to decompress for a long time. I think that is what started me writing blogs in the first place. But lately, my love of reading fun stories has influenced my own writing and there is a story in my heart that has been slowly working its way out for several years now. I dabbled a bit in short-stories in college and it has now blossomed into a full blown novel series project. I won’t get into the juicy details just yet, but I hope this little post will wet your appetite as you wonder.
As I write, I will share little snippets and possibly even full chapters to see what you, as a reader base, think. I cannot wait to hear your input as the characters and story lines grow and evolve into something of great enjoyment! Fingers crossed!
