I am just like you – making my way along the WriteVenture.
Writing has always been something I did on my own. I wrote when I came home from school, coming up with imaginary worlds, daydreaming on family trips and adventures, and writing little random thoughts and ideas in old school notebooks. Somehow, as a kid, I found myself pulling open a blank page and bringing to life the beginnings of a story. . . .
Not gonna lie. For the longest time I thought Peter Pan was real. In fact, I used to crawl out my bedroom window in the middle of the night and listen to the soundtrack from the Peter Pan movie (2003 version) and search the stars for the Second Star to the Right. I was a really weird kid with an unhealthy obsession with a boy who never grew up.
The thing is, my head is caught up in dreams. . . .
I’m a Mormon. I know it, I live it, and I love it.
My religion is an important part of who I am and is not something I’m going to hide. I believe in sharing goodness and the light of Jesus Christ with everyone I can, even if it’s just by being an example of the believers.
If you have questions about who I am or what I believe, feel free to ask! Or visit Mormon.org where you can find out more about who we are and what we believe. <3
I’m a firm believer in the value of going places you’ve never been before. Not only is it healthy for the human soul to be able to visit places that are far away from the home and world you know, but you’re able to meet new people from all different walks of life. More than that, traveling is the fuel for my imagination. There is so much we can learn from people who are different from us, who have walked in different paths, been taught different things. They can teach us so much about the world we don’t know and help us to see things from an entirely different perspective. That newfound perspective is useful research and provides infinite amount of story and character ideas that you can channel into your own writing. . . .
