Reality depresses me. I need to find fantasy worlds and escape in them.
– Noel Fielding
When I was in elementary school I wanted to be a writer. The specifics of that word didn’t matter, but I enjoyed writing books. Let me tell you they weren’t Pulitzer winning novels but enough for me to turn a five-page assignment into twenty. When I started college undecided I expected to major in something I least expected. I’d find a passion I never knew existed. College didn’t turn out the way I planned.
It took years of managing anxiety attacks for me to make a 180 and end up right back where I originally started. I want to be a writer. Again…specifics.
Hi there! I’m Meagan, a twenty-something-year old living in western Pennsylvania. A work-in-progress author, blogger, and lover of fiction. That love of fiction transcended into notebooks filled with unfinished ideas, years of failed NaNoWriMo attempts, and ultimately this blog.
The shows and movies and books I cry over are more than escape mechanisms but inspiration and motivation: I could get there one day and possibly…make someone else cry. Not that that’s my goal. Well, yeah it is. And this blog is a way for me to talk about those inspirations and give them the credit they deserve…while also fangirling.
I like to think I can be a person whose life revolves around writing but that’s not the case. Reading, fitness, baking, binging new TV shows, trying new things, and my dog take up any time not writing. Usually my dog.
Blogging started as a hobby. A way to get my writing out there while also writing every day. I didn’t expect it to turn into something I enjoy doing. I enjoy helping people discover new ways to escape reality, even for a while. I enjoy being able to express my love of fiction and I hope you enjoy it as well. x
