Starting a blog was a big commitment to me. I didn’t want to do it just because it seemed that many other people around me chose that, but I really wanted to help other students, by sharing my personal writing experiences, my college essays, tips, so on and so forth.
If you knew me, then you would characterize me as a reading, writing, and coffee addict enthusiast. These three are, without a doubt, my biggest passions, and the perfect day for me is a day spent reading or writing while enjoying coffee. As you might expect, reading numerous novels was the one thing that prompted my thirst for writing. Immersing in another person’s inner life is mind-blowing, to me. And, to me, it doesn’t matter if I relate to the author or not – the mere action of connecting with someone else through reading is thought-provoking.
As we live our lives, we hide our deepest thoughts and feelings, because that’s just the way the world is. But literature aims at uncovering the most profound inner happenings of our subconscious, what determines people to act in certain ways, the manner in which childhood affects us, or the main aspects in life that alter our principles and perception, in one way or another. I believe that literature discloses a lot about the human psychology, which I’m also passionate about.
Of course, reading has also thought me about empathy. Many a time, we are unaware of the battles some people have, and we have the tendency to judge, considering the things that we do see. Nonetheless, there is more to life than what meets the eye. And there is more to the human soul and actions, as well. We are complex creatures, and uncovering the human nature and psychology will never cease to compel me.
As a result, I plan on writing my own book. I don’t know when this dream of mine is going to come true. But that’s what I’m determined to do. I love architecting human lives, characters.
I hope that the essays I’ll share with you on the blog will serve as guidance and inspiration in your writing journey!
