My name is Drea and sometimes I have a hard time calling myself a writer because I feel like I’m just getting started. There is so much I need to learn and experiment with… but I am still a writer.
Feeling like such a beginner is the main reason why I started this blog. I want a place to document my journey as a writer, what I’m learning as I go along, and the challenges I’m facing. I want a place to share my writing and hear from others as well as we try to achieve our dreams and goals.
A bit of background on me: I’m currently building a freelance career while writing poetry and short stories on the side. As of right now (March 2019) I haven’t published any of my fictional writing… YET. I’m still working on it and battling a major lack of self-confidence. I think that has always prevented me from sharing my work with others and that’s the first thing I’d like to get better at. I’d also like to be more open with my writing and the struggles I’m facing as I try to achieve my ultimate dream of becoming a full time writer.
This blog will be the beginning of all of that.
I have a long way to go on this writing journey, but I’m excited that I’m not alone!
