In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A Bookish Choice.”
I think I’d like to be both, if that makes any sense at all. I don’t expect to be as good as Dickens or Shakespeare, but I still want to be relevant. I admire some of my favorite authors for a number of reasons, but at the same time, I am intimidated by them. Their world building and character development are things I can only dream of matching. I’ll get there, someday. If only I could keep a steady progress pace on my book. I have all these great ideas bouncing around in my head, but somehow I forget to write them down.
Yesterday, I reblogged “depression is a liar” from @hpwritesblogs. Today, I’m going to expand on that and talk about my own battle with anxiety.
I have no idea who my ideal audience is. Honestly, I’m just happy that people read my blog at all. That being said, here goes nothing.
I know you don’t understand why I talk about fictional characters as if they’re real. I know you don’t understand why I seem obsessed with my professors. You say you understand, but you haven’t for a long time. So I’m going to try and set the record straight.
If you don’t know me already, I’m Marialena. I’m a rising junior at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia. The goal of this blog is much the same as it was when I started it a little over a year ago: writing book and movie reviews with the goal of discussion and helping people find something new to read or watch.
That awkward moment when you realize you completely forgot that you signed up for Blogging 101. I hope I still have time to participate …
