I think that life will find you how it wants to, and while you may have these grand plans, sometimes they fall apart and lead you to something even more beautiful. My grand plans have always included science fiction and/or fantasy novels – and it still does – but at some point my writing world peek it’s little head down a branch covered path, and I was lead to poetry.
Poetry has been part of my life since I was a little girl. I have memories of writing (terrible) poems as I sat on the top bunk, in the room I shared with my sister. I’m happy to know those poems have long been disposed of (terrible and not very nice, some of them), but I am happy they happened. Looking back at them, I know they helped me move towards this new path in my writing life, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
One day, all those other plans will make their way out there. Its just one of those things I can feel, and I know – in my heart – if I don’t give up, it will be.
Happy writing, living, love, and everything!
