** The first three books in my six part dystopian series have officially made their way out into the world! Check them out!
For the sake of blogging and self-exploration and contemplation, I’ve been slowly making my way through answering questions from this list
Today’s Question : What are you sure of in your life?
I suppose, in short, I’m sure of the basis of who I am. I’m a writer, first and foremost. I read a book when I was ten years old that fascinated me beyond belief, and I declared that I would grow up to be an author. That’s the first thing that comes to defining myself. I’m a writer. I write fiction to get out of my headspace and create, I journal for self-expression and to relieve my anxiety … I write because that is who I am and what I’m here to do.
I’m sure that I always have, and always will feel that I don’t really “fit in” with humanity as a whole. I’m not one of those awkward teenagers who grow up to be a super financially successful well adjusted adult, I’m a person who will always look at the world around me and fail to feel very connected to it. I stopped trying to force myself into the human race, I’ve found contentment not only through my writing, but through the love and respect I’ve always had for animals. Helping animals, speaking for those who can’t speak for themselves, the passion and connection I feel to them is crucial to my emotional well-being. My pets bring me so much joy. Bottle feeding abandoned kittens makes my heart explode. Helping a rescue animals connect with their perfect forever families furthers my purpose.
I’m sure of who I am and what truly makes me, me. I always have been, and I’m thankful for that.
