The semester is in full swing, but for the first time in two years I won’t be sitting in a classroom. Don’t worry, I’m stil on the track to graduation I’ve just come to the sweetest part of this journey–writing my thesis. It’s bittersweet, actually, because this process is such a lonely one and I’ve grown very fond of workshopping my pieces and my classmates pieces. The sweet part is, I’ve worked very hard to live in this moment. Working full-time and going to school two nights a week for two years hasn’t been easy. Most times, I don’t know how I do it outside of sleep deprivation and prayer. Regardless of the steps I took to get here, I can finally say I AM here.
It’s exciting and terrifying all at the same time because I feel so passionately about this experience. I’m writing, editing, and compiling a manuscript and my goal is to get this thing in a book prize and off to publication. I’ve known for years that writing was a large part of what I was born to contribute to this world. I have something to say that I know can speak to other people because we all live each other’s stories. My hope is that this book can be one way that my voice finds its way into ears and hearts of many.
I’ll keep you all posted as the journey continues. For now, I’ve got gotta go…WRITE now 😉
