I write because it has been something I have always done. When I was a kid I bounced around between houses staying with my dad, or over at my grandparent’s house. Writing was the one thing I could bring with me no matter where I was. I still carry around little notebooks to write ideas down in. Writing helped me escape to a world that was of my choosing – not the one that was forced upon me.
And while I have been published in the past, I truly believe that Grad School will help me step up my game. Grad School will give me that glimpse into writing for the 21st century that I may not have seen or may have missed. A wise man in my life once said, “Most obvious is hardest to see.”
