Introducing myself and my journal: Progression: documenting forms of serendipidy
As an avid journaler of the old school format, this new open forum is (to me) somewhat intimidating. I need to confront and own this fear of writing publicly first, before launching into the immense depth and perspective I know it offers. I feel vulnerable publishing my thoughts online, though I've filled volumes of notebooks that simply sit the closet of my parent's house. What a wonderful new challenge to find at the exact time that creative writing has come into my life in yet another different form. Something feels profoundly auspicious about these two independent events.
This opportunity to join Pulse Wire could not have come at a better moment. I am so thrilled to embark on this new journey, having literally only read about Pulse Wire minutes ago. My passion for writing is in equal parts from my own perspective and for writing women's stories who do not have the possibility to do so. My current project, in its nascent stages, is for survivors of domestic violence to tell their stories themselves while I find the means to get them made public; a literary midwife, of sorts.
I look forward to sharing more in the coming days.
