Writing

Today, I'm being vulnerable again. I've told you my weight and about my journey in the gym, but today I want to share something else about myself. I love writing. 

I want to be a writer.

I've written on and off over the past few years, but I've never been as consistent as I'd like.  I've been so encouraged by my consistency with my vlog that I wanted to challenge myself to put writing on the same level of importance. If it's as important to me as I tell myself, then I need to make it a priority. Arguably, it should be a higher priority than the vlogs. So earlier this week I started writing again.

I've always wanted to write a fiction novel because of the drastic influence other works of fiction have had on my life, but I've always been too scared to do it. That's over. I'm prioritizing myself and my writing now. Even though that means being vulnerable and terrified. And even though that means I'm opening myself up to criticism. If I don't start working now to improve my skill as a writer, I'll never get better. I'd much rather face this paralyzing fear than never be a writer. So check out my short vlog on the subject and then head over to my 2nd blog post from today, "Chapter One".
