here i am, a year later since i admitted to myself that i want to be a writer

Keywords: writing

so you have been creating art for yourself for a while now and are finally ready for the world to see it? actually publishing your work, well, that’s something else entirely. i started publishing my work on tumblr in 2018 (i think) and published it almost every day for a few years. with tumblr dying more and more, i decided to move to instagram and, after a few failed attempts, kept regularly posting since the summer of 2020. i’m not gonna lie: putting your work out there is hard. and trying to get it seen even harder. there are so many talented artists, how do i stand out, do i even want to stand out? do i want to constantly perform, constantly post? do i want to be a part of a platform that values quantity over quality? honestly, the answer to most of those was no, at least for me personally. but i knew at the same time that social media can also give artists a chance to be seen, a chance for their voice to be heard, the possibility to connect with other amazingly talented artists and with people who resonate with their work and for that, however challenging Instagram and co might be, i am incredibly thankful.

Getting paid would put too much pressure on what’s mostly just a fun project

that lets me riff on and explore some research and teaching-related ideas in a low stakes environment. It doesn’t take much of my time (about an hour of my week) and what benefits it does have are worth it to me. I can’t make any great argument that this work directly supports student recruitment and retention but it’s not doing it just to do it. Not to me.

I want to create worlds, I want to create people, and I want to create ideas

As a writer, I used the rather loose excuse that any additional experience was good, ultimately beneficial to my skill as a writer. Putting aside the general point that having a wide range of interests is generally beneficial for any lifestyle or career, it took me some time to realise that many of my interests related to one thing, that I ultimately want to express through my writing.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog! I hope I haven’t been too blunt but I do feel people can beat around the bush when it comes to writing how they feel. With me, I know exactly what I want, how I’m going to achieve it and my fierce high success achieving ethos will help me strive for it! I’m a friendly, positive Northern lass who’s writing style reflects my strong regional voice and I’ll stop at nothing to achieve my dreams! The Universe responds accordingly!

whether it’s simply self-published or self-published-to-traditional, I don’t care. I just know I’m meant to write, and I want the right readers to read my books, as any artist does.
