Who I Am In Real Life

I promise I’m funnier. But also more serious.

And that picture to your right is me but isn’t me. I’m not that pretty.

I’m quieter. As in I might seem to have a lot to say online, but in person, I talk when I feel the need to. Otherwise I’m listening. Or reading.

Also I’m not very eloquent. I’m not elaborating.

That’s all I have at the moment. What? Isn’t it enough? What more do you want from me?

I Take You More Seriously If

Regardless of whether you’re a writer or not, I take you more seriously if…

  • You use proper grammar.
  • You spell words correctly.
  • You aren’t cursing every other sentence.
  • You know how to punctuate.
  • You read over your work several times.
  • You don’t blame auto-correct.
  • You ensure words mean what you intend them to mean.
  • You write without stealing, copying, or plagiarizing from others.

A Life Decision

I have come to the decision that I want to spend the rest of my life reading, writing, blogging, editing, revising, etc. I don’t want to just pursue writing as a hobby or for fun. I’m serious about it. So serious in fact that I want to study writing and English in post-secondary. Serious enough to go after a career in this industry.

You think I’m crazy, right? Crazy enough to follow my dreams, to listen to my heart, to do something I love?

Then yes, I am crazy.

You Know You Are A Damn Good Writer When

You know you are a damn good writer when….an English teacher accuses you of plagiarizing.

Like what kind of writer copies someone else’s ideas instead of coming up with their own? Why would a writer ruin the writing process for themselves? A real writer uses their own words, their own ideas, and their own brain.
