I’ve spent the past week or so just sitting around and wondering what to write as my first post on this blog.
I wanted it to be something that captured my essence in a few paragraphs, along with sending some kind of valuable lesson I’ve learned so far in my short thirteen years of living.
But then I couldn’t think of anything.
So I guess I’ll just ramble about some of the recent things in my normal teenage life.
It’s been about three and a half weeks since I started at my new school, and surprisingly, I’m still enjoying it way too much. I thought that by this time I would be sick of the homework, projects, and tests (and not to mention waking up at six every morning), but I’m legitimately having a great time. Sure, some of my classes are more dull than others, and I sometimes feel awkward around the new friends I’ve made, but overall, it’s been a great experience so far.
I recently had a stroke of inspiration, and am currently working on writing a novel! I had the idea for it a little while back, but I didn’t really act on it since I wasn’t sure what to do for a plot-line. However, I’ve been writing it for the past week or so, and have been (slowly, but surely) making progress on it. I’ve already fallen in love with all the characters, which is surprising- it generally takes a while for me to form a “relationship” with them, to put it bluntly.
The thing is, the characters I create are like my friends; the reason I keep them so close is because they’re essentially a part of me. Every single one of the characters I make up has a part of my soul in them- it’s just how they come to life. And, before you ask, no, I’m not insane because I sometimes have conversations with them (not in my head, but by actually speaking out loud), I’m simply an artist. An author. A creative engineer. Whatever you prefer to call it, I am that. I like to voice my thoughts and hear how they sound out loud, and my characters are ways that I do that.
Well, I think that this has been a decent first post. Sure, it’s not five-star-quality writing or anything, but it is my honest thought process, so I think it’s worth publishing for the world to read (if they want to read it, at least).
Until next time,
