I’m Abigail. I’m 19. I’m a college student. I’m a writer, and you are, too. All of us are writers because we all have stories to share.
I won’t claim to be an expert on writing, but I find the act of putting words on paper to be the least important part of the process. Rather, the most important step to writing a good story is the very first one: having something to say.
No matter how few books we read or write, we cannot get through life without coming across stories. From Instagram captions and text messages to the newspaper and songs on the radio, we are constantly reading, hearing, and telling stories. Those little stories that slip into our everyday lives unannounced are the ones that connect us all. They remind us that we are not alone in this world, and that we are all human.
And because we are human, we are all writers. It is our very existence gives us something to say.
Imagine a world where we all shared those stories, where we all knew each other as surely as we knew ourselves, where we were all constantly reminded of our common humanity.
That is the kind of world I want to live in. Because stories make us human, and the more we share them, the more connected we all are.
I started this blog to share how I make writing a part of my life as a college student, because there is so much more to being a writer than what’s on the page. Growing up doesn’t have to mean abandoning the creativity we had as children, and I hope to inspire other young people to lead creative lifestyles.
What do I blog about?
This is a literary + lifestyle blog, which means I post about reading, writing, and my own life. As I said before, the aim of this blog is to inspire young people to live creatively, which is why incorporating writing and art into my busy lifestyle is the focus of my posts.
