I’m Sarah, a tea-drinking, coffee-swilling scribe. Delighted to meet you.
A couple of years ago I got hooked on writing, so now I can’t go a day without. Even if it’s tiny poems, I have a need to write. I scribble down my dreams – no, not the life-goals. It does not do to dwell on them and forget to do things. The dreams I write down are my REM ones, which tend to the really weird.
Sticky notes are my friend and I have notebooks plastered with little yellow squares, on which is written a note or idea. There are many of them, plus technology’s notes. I write far less than I’d like, but I try to be happy with what I do get done.
If I’m not writing then I’m probably reading.
Nine times out of ten I don’t dare kill my darlings, lest I wind up with a pile of torn-up papers. Some days I try it anyway and think it improves things. Quitting isn’t a thing I believe in doing, unless the thing being quit is a source of unhappiness.
Creative writing is the goal: I’ve completed NaNoWriMo five times and started a sixth, so I’m always looking to improve and gain feedback for my own writings. I want to have material to publish by the end of… well, I once said end of the year but I don’t remember when that was. End of a year, then.
Here, I’ll be writing things for your perusal. Sometimes I’ll tell you about things I like, or the things that go on in the day-to-day. Other times I may be writing in German.
Shall we venture forth, then?
