So You want to be a writer?
I know! Me too!
We have all of these stories and sometimes we don't know where or how to start!
The thought of being a writer can feel so far away from our lived reality that it seems almost impossible. Dios Mio! I'm overwhelmed just typing this but guess what. I am writing.
Yes. This counts! Check it! I want you to take a second to stop and think of all of the ways you already exist as a writer.
Text your homies every day? Writing.
Wrote a fire caption on Instagram? Writing.
Created a mini-script to go with your funny Tik-Tok? Writing.
Keep a journal? Writing.
The point is if you're writing in any shape or form you're already ahead of the game.
Okay, author?! Yes, I am talking to you. You are an author because every day that you are alive you are in control of your personal narrative, you are making choices that you may use as inspiration for your writing later on. Do you see where this is going? This means you can be a writer even when you're not writing. I know. Mind-blowing.
Anyway, I've compiled some resources to help you on your journey.
Remember that you don't have to have all the answers, but you must have all of the questions.
