My goal is to do this right this time.
I started this thing back in 2012 when I was fresh out of the military and working on my English degree. I mostly posted writings I was working on for school, a lot of personal narrative pieces, and some other journal-type writing. I also posted a lot of satirical, experimental, and garbage pieces that I became embarrassed of. I was becoming a narcissistic writer and person. After finishing my BA in English Language and Literature, I went on to graduate school to become a secondary English Language Arts teacher. Once I got to my first teaching job, I took a look at my website, let myself cringe really hard, and decided that it probably wasn’t a good idea to have everything out there for everyone like it was. Eventually, I came to the decision that deleting the site was probably the mature thing to do and that I could always come back to it.
After a few years away from all creative writing, I’ve decided to pay for the domain and bring the site back. I haven’t written creatively in a long time. I’ve been trying to figure out how to be a good teacher. In addition to teaching, I also bought a house, moved across Washington State, and adopted two more dogs (I have three now). I’ve been busy. Reading and Writing for myself has taken a backseat. It needed to take a backseat.
I’m going to try to keep this site into two distinct categories:
- Narrative Writing
- Writing about Teaching
Check back from time to time. I’ll be updating the site periodically, building and changing it as I go along.
Have a great day,
