Hello to my dearest readers!
I know this is a couple of weeks late into the new year, but I wanted to post it anyway.
It’s hard to believe that I have had this blog for two years now. I may not be a super famous blogger, but having this platform to post my creative work and rambling thoughts has been a blessing to me. There is just something about clicking that “publish” button that makes me feel a little more like the writer I long to be.
I know that I have not posted very much since last year when I decided to break away from my weekly posts, but I am hoping to change that this year. I probably won’t go back to posting every single week on a set day because I was beginning to feel like I was forcing my writing more than I like to, but I am going to try to post semi-regularly this year, if only to show you all that I’m still alive.
Now, about that announcement…
It isn’t anything fancy or life-changing, but I did want to give my readers a heads up about a new writing series that I will be working on over the course of this year. This series, tentatively called “Special People,” will feature a collection of pieces describing my dearest friends. Each friend’s ‘chapter,’ as I have taken to calling them, will be posted for that individual’s birthday.
This idea stemmed from a combination of friends who adore cheesy writing and a social media post that was shared around the net a while ago. This post brought up the idea that many people would love to see how an author would portray them in writing. I might not be a super awesome published writer or anything, but I figured that my closest friends would love a cheesy chapter about them, how they came into my life, and what they mean to me!
With that said, keep an eye out on this blog for chapters being posted periodically through the year (sprinkled within my usual dusting of poems and commentaries). Most of the friends I will be writing about have birthdays in the spring and summer, so you will see these posts around those times. However, the first birthday post should be up sometime this month!
Thank you all for sticking with this blog as I fumble through literary self-discovery. I hope you all have a bright and adventurous 2018!
