Forging a new path is a winding road, and can lead to thousands of different places, and grand adventures.

I have been trying to figure out my place in the writing community for the last several months. This new expedition has taken me to unexpected places, and I am happy to say it has continued to evolve as I continue my journey. 

I started Th3 Record as a way to introduce myself to the writing community, but I have been struggling to find my voice among all the incredible talent. 

I’m a strange mix of educated, and eccentric. To blunt for polite society, with very little desire to conform. A compassionate introvert trying to break out of her shell, while acknowledging her personal limitations.

I’m nobody special in the great scheme of things. Despite this fact, I have a lot to offer other writers who are also struggling to find their place in the writing world.

I have always hated having the spotlight on myself. It makes me see all my weird imperfections. (Thank you anxiety.) I had to ask myself why I was trying to put myself out there, if this was how I felt. The answer was simple. I want to motivate other writers, because it helps keep me motivated to achieve my own goals. You can’t achieve greatness, and help others do the same, while hidden away from the world; right?

You are welcome to follow along on my journey. I would sincerely enjoy the company. Who knows, you may even learn something knew with me along the way.

As always, shaping and molding.
