Hello 2018. May you bring me joy and success.
My goals for 2018 are simple: be healthy, be happy, and don’t hold myself back.
I decided to make writing my full-time job. I tried my best to write and submit my scripts to competitions and fellowships while I worked part-time in retail, but I found the more I worked in my part-time job the less I wrote. I’m fortunate enough to have a support system from my husband to allow me to work on my scripts, short stories, and write this blog every day. I understand many people don’t have this luxury and I’m trying to take full advantage of this opportunity while I can.
I was discussing doing this website with my friend who is also a fellow artist (check out her work here: https://www.facebook.com/corinneiskorean/) and after many “You can do it!” from her I decided to bite the bullet and just try it. This is a very scary leap of faith I’m taking, but I’m pretty excited to see where I land.
On top of writing a blog, I’m going to be posting excerpts of my short stories and scripts. I have a couple short stories written. I am finishing up a novella that I’ll be putting an excerpt on here as well. I’m open to receiving feedback on what you think works and doesn’t work in the story. This is a learning experience for me as I work on improving my writing. If you want to read the rest of my story, I will be setting up a Patreon page where you can pledge a certain amount and gain access to them.
WHAT I PLAN TO DO THIS YEAR:
- Get back to writing short stories
- Finish my first novella
- Finish another feature script
- Create a web series
I look forward to having you all follow my writing journey and hope you enjoy my stories as much as I enjoy writing them.
