When I was young, I loved creative writing. I took advantage of every opportunity to put my thoughts on paper – school projects, writing contests, a family newspaper, personal journals.
And then, one day, my dream of attending Harvard Law became a reality. I put down my pen, and focused on building a legal career and starting a family.
In a recent moment of mid-life reflection, I realized that two decades had passed. I realized that I’ve reached that point in life where a thing left undone could easily become a regret. And I decided that it was, once again, a time to write.
In the past 20 years, technology has completely transformed the literary world. When I was in high school and college, authors had to secure contracts with major publishing houses in order to connect with readers across town (let alone in a different state or country). Those barriers to entry caused many aspiring authors to file away their story ideas and pursue different dreams.
Only a few months into my journey, it’s clear those barriers no longer exist. Through the power of social media, I have connected with people across the country and throughout the world. Writers with collections of published books, and others who, like me, are just getting started. And readers who are searching for the next great story.
I have no idea where this journey will take me, but I would be grateful to have you join me.
