• Writing Goals & Aspirations
Oh, but for the love of creativity and continuous learning—especially of the English language. Ever since I read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, I exclaimed, “I’m going to write like C.S. Lewis!”. Combining that long ago fantasy and the fact that I am an avid journal writer, most passionate about the dreaming mind’s landscape, I have finally faced my fears and decided to pursue the curious path of a writer’s life.
This is my life long quest: to satisfy my natural inclination to pay attention to the details, to grant myself permission to traverse the fascinating realm of the imagination, and to explore and maybe even stumble upon some truth and meaning within life. For now, my aim is to embrace the journey and continue to grow as a budding writer, and, to hopefully one day, find my own voice. As Joan Didion once asked, “Was it only by dreaming or writing that I could find out what I thought?”. Perhaps that is precisely how it works for some of us.
