View the backstory:
A year of questions. 365 questions.
I'm one of those people who feels inspired constantly--I'm excitable and love coming up with ideas. What I've learned over my 25 years is that I struggle to follow through.
This year I've forced myself to change, and I've committed. I've committed to 365 days of writing, and I'm publishing it here to hold myself accountable. The word "poem" is scary and foreign to a lot of people. Most people think they hate poetry, but it's 2017: Rupi Kaur has shown us that poetry can resonate with anyone. We can do anything we want with words.
My inspiration for this series is pretty simple. No matter how wise and certain we feel, we're never finished. There's always something to learn, question, and examine. At the end of the day, do any of us really know what we're doing? Life is constantly changing, and while that scares me, it's also what makes us human.
I wanted to keep the series open-ended so it's free to change over time. But I also knew I needed a few guidelines to keep me moving in the right direction. Here they are:
Follow along with my year of questions here!
My favorite things are the simple ones: day-long book binges, cozy candles, dog kisses, ink on your hands, tree stars (leaves for those of you who never watched The Land Before Time) sweater weather, new ideas, local craft beer, punctuation, and knotty saltwater hair. Desserts are my favorite meal. I'm a creative writer and editor, and I created this space to keep my writing reflexes sharp and to share my simple ramblings with you!
