The writer’s journey is a unique animal, though it shares similarities to the artist’s journey, or the musician’s journey, and, most specifically, the hero’s journey. The hero’s journey is the quest, both internal and external, that the protagonists of most novels go through. It is more than an endeavor that the hero must struggle through to reach their goal, but also a series of lessons that teaches the hero more about themselves than they ever would have had they never experienced it.
I am a writer and, like most of my species, I love words. I adore them. They are the fruits that feed me, and the bricks that I build my life from. This series will provide me with a way to track my own personal progress, and also to appreciate that other are taking it as well.
On this blog, I want to document my own writer’s journey. I’ll talk about what sort of progress I’m making, and maybe the other writers out there and I can all help each other out. I will be talking about the sort of work that I am doing on my own projects, writing competitions, and just what being a writer and weaver of words means to me. Look for various topics discussed during my writer’s journey, and let’s all help each other!
