Hey! I’m Elizabeth, but my friends call me Betsy. I am twenty-eight years old and I live in Portland, Oregon. I have loved stories and writing for as long as I can remember, but it is only within the last six months I have started truly taking the craft seriously, writing not just when I feel like it, but every single day before going to work. I work a regular office job during the day, and this blog is my attempt to share my own journey of pursuing the writing life in the midst of a normal, daily life.
I created the blog with a few specific goals in mind:
1) To encourage fellow writers by passing along worthwhile resources
2) To process through the joy and struggle of the writing life in community
3) To face fear and have the accountability of going public with my writing
Feel free to leave your comments, and please let me know how this blog can be more helpful. Happy writing!
