Hello and Welcome!

Hello all, and welcome to my blog!

As an undergraduate at George Fox University, I intend to major in English with a focus in Creative Writing so that I can eventually make a career in creative writing on my own. You’ll get to know me through my posts, but one of the first things you should know about my writing is that my goal and purpose is to communicate my ideas and values to my readers in the most creative, enjoyable and meaningful way possible. People don’t read as much as they used to in the past, even though, in my opinion, reading is one of the most effective and wonderful ways to learn. Stories teach us about true beauty, morality, virtue, and the right ways to think. Of course there are other entertaining ways to learn, but I think reading can fulfill those purposes in a very personal and enjoyable way that cannot be compared to any other activity. I love writing because I feel I can communicate truth as I found it and can best tell it, especially if what I have to say is unique and can only be discovered through personal experience. I live for the moments when I learn or experience something worth writing about, and it brings me immense joy to express it in story and poetry.

So welcome to my blog, and thank you for reading!

    Oh man, you’re the first person I recall mentioning poetry. I hope that we are going to get to see some of this poetry you speak of?
    Your bit on how stories teach us a bunch of different things is also really appreciated. It’s great how they allow us to get out of our own heads for a while.

      Well I don’t know yet if I’ll post it on this blog (maybe – we’ll see), but in my next post I’m going to post a link to my other blog, where I post most of my creative writing. Thank you for your comment! I agree – stories are as good (if not better!) for the writer as they are for the reader!
