I have had a lot of time to think about the future of my blog over the weekend. Where do I go from here?
I have met the most amazing people over the last two and half months within the mental health community. People, who are willing to share their story, their experience with me because, on so many levels, they deal with the same issues.
So what does this mean?
I think I am starting to get a clearer picture. Writing my own memoir has helped me grow as a writer. I am on a great stretch run of a month that is usually all doom and gloom. Writing has always been a lifeline, who I am as a person. What if my blog could become a place where I share other human beings stories that align so well with my own.
To be honest I chose journalism as my minor because I always wanted to be a journalist. When my focus turned to fiction writing I figured this is where I belong (and I still do.) I am starting to realize I just love to write, but real life writing is about real connections with real people.
I am not sure if I am ready to tackle other people’s stories just yet, but if it’s in the cards and it comes to that point, then I think it will be something to consider. Maybe I am just thinking out loud, but people sharing their stories with me is amazing. To hear that they will share their experience after reading about my own.
I want nothing more than to hear from you! Is this some grandiose idea or something that has teeth?
