New Plans, New Directions

If you read my last post, you’ll know that I’ve been debating on what to do with this blog now that my Introduction to Creative Writing class has concluded. To make a (ridiculously) long story short, I’ve decided to post my own work now. And I’m just about ready to take the plunge. Gulp!

It’s a big decision for me, mostly because I’m not used to putting my work out there for public consumption and scrutiny. As a grant writer, my work typically reaches a very small audience, and a very specific one as well. Professional Writers don’t get to lend their own voice to their writing works, and rarely do I get the chance to share a poem with anyone much less write one. I enjoyed my class so much that I decided to let my imagination off the leash more often and write creatively once again. It hasn’t been as easy as riding a bike again though–no muscle memory to help me here.

If you find yourself compelled to make a comment or two, I would be happy to read your responses. However, please make your comments constructive. It’s not too hard to be polite and courteous; in fact it’s not difficult at all. Just remember the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

Thanks for reading!
